    Ok... this is a great one... :)

    1978 Chevy Chevette Very Clean One Owner Car!

    He's trying to sell a 1978 Chevy Chevette w/90K miles for $2500?!?!?! Wth?!?! From his post:
    Good luck with that. Classic? Is there some weird hidden market for these cars where someone would be willing to pay more than $50?

    My dad had a 1980 Chevy Chevette that he bought new. What a hunk of junk that car was. It couldn't turn, stop nor accelerate worth beans. Accelerating meant a lot of sound, but little fury.

    Feel free to post other hilarious cars for sale here...

    I routinely troll the State of Oregon Surplus Property web site on ebay. (When I lived in NV, it was a great place to buy cars for teens Ford : Crown Victoria Ford : Crown Victoria | eBay )
    These days I watch for 'odd' vehicles.

    1975 White 4864W Cab & Chassis Day Cab Truck - ODOT Salem, Oregon 1975 White 4864W Cab & Chassis Day Cab Truck - ODOT Salem, Oregon | eBay

    Toyota : Prius Toyota : Prius | eBay

    The funds go to the state, so the seller is the most honest used car salesman on the planet.

    not a hilarious car for sale but my dad bought an 83 Chevy Citation with 2.8L V6 and 3 speed automatic. It got rear ended and totaled at low speed. The rear end buckled like a hopper. The B pillar crushed. The rear door over lapped the front door. Luckily no one was hurt. I can't believe the car was built with passenger cabin as part of the crumble zone.
    We replaced it with an 85 Chevy Celebrity with 2.8L V6 with 3spd auto. We bought it for $9500. We put 140,000 miles on it in 10 years. We sold it for $2500. It was after we sold it that I check the KBB. High blue book at the time was $2100. That was the best resell value car we ever had and it was the worst car we ever owned as far as reliability.

    Not good... that one has a red bang warning (turtle light?). Clearly, the seller doesn't know much/anything about Toyota hybrids when he puts in statements like "IMA (Integrated Motor Assistance) battery failure". Uhh.... IMA is a Honda hybrid acronym.
    Holy crap! Geez! If someone was in the rear seats at the time, they'd probably be a goner.

    Haahaha! I remember those GM A-cars. I think my parents did test drive a Celebrity when car shopping. We had an 86 Olds Cutlass Ciera (so it was the Olds badge-engineered version) w/2.5L 4 banger and 3 speed auto. Despite it having slightly above average reliability, it still had a multitude of problems before the 50K mile mark. Gotta love those 1 year/12K mile basic and 3 year/36K mile w/$100 deductible powertrain warranties....

    I suspect many cars from the 80s or earlier (esp. light, small ones) would be virtual deathtraps compared to modern cars, despite some having a lot of apparent heft. Automakers that sell in the US have gotten a lot better at designing cars to protect occupants.

    IIRC, in the mid-80s, GM A-cars were VERY hot sellers, at least in terms of raw numbers.

    A friend of mine found this ad on craiglist a while back. Hilarious ad for a hilarious car. I wish I had thought to save a pic of the car. Enjoy

    Skyline! 1990 GTSt

    Date: 2011-09-26, 8:17PM
    This isn't your normal skyline. This motherfcker is the skyline God would drive if he wasn't busy doing God sh*t like making tsunamis and crap. Its set up to go fast, and go fast sideways. Who doesn't like to get sideway?! Terrorists, thats who. Are you a terrorist? No? Then you need this car.

    Handling? This car handles like a junior executive CEO. Go around corners like the devil himself is chasing you, and not give a fck.

    Whats that? You like drifting? Well I've got some great god [email protected] news for you. This car was a drift project of mine, and the last owner was planning on making it a drift machine too. Interior is for pussies so we got rid of it. Manly as fck. It literally oozes testosterone. So much so that its puddling up in the back.

    Seats? this cocks*cker has got two. One for you, and one for the hot @ss broad thats gunna be all upons your dick after you buy this car. You're a girl? Sh*t works both ways. One seat for you, and one seat for that hot @ss dude you've been trying to hook up with for weeks. Deal with it,sh*ts getting serious.

    Stereos and AC are for hippies. Fortunately this car has neither. Oh look at me, I like listen to Simon and Garfunkel and think about puppies. F*ck that. The only noises you're gunna be hearing is the ultra manly engine noises coming from this sweet turbocharged, intercooled, 24 valve inline 6. Sh*ts getting real, real f*cking fast.

    This car has got a bright orange ebrake handle (b*tches love orange) with a drift button for those super ultra megahellatastic bar room brawler ebrake lockers. F*ck. Yes.

    Now, I'll be honest. The wheels are a little lackluster, although everyones gunna be so focused on your super gangster drifting that nobody is going to give a f*ck about your sh*tty stock 16s. Don't worry, I've got you fcking covered. Its like we're in Vietnam and you just got ambushed by Charlie. Don't worry, friend, I've got your fcking back and I blow charlie to kingdom fcking come. For an extra $450 I can throw in some added p*ssy magnets for wheels, just don't come crawling back to me complaining that you're getting TOO much vajayjay. Bright fcking green 18s. Greens not your thing? Super legit silver 18s. Done like dinner.

    This car has got 1.5 metric f*ck tons of awesome parts. Bride, Greddy, Brembo, the list doesn't f*cking END. It just keeps going and going, like the energizer bunny on speed.

    You like going fast? Ever tried to outrun 24 police cars and 3 helicopters? You need this car. It will go so fcking fast that you may very well go back in time. It happened to me once. Just once, but it was fcking rad. Its like someone took a rocket and opened its mouth and poured steroids down its throat and and threatened to kill its family if it wasn't the fastest motherfcker you've ever driven.

    I get it. You're busy, I'm busy, lets not waste time. If you're interested send me a message and I'll get back to you ASAP. You send me a message, I send you one right back. Thats how this works.

    The link for the Skyline does not work.

    Here is a unique vehicle I heard about via The Bugle Podcast.
    http://www.amazon.com/JL421-Badonkadonk-Land-Cruiser-Tank/dp/B00067F1CE

    What is even more funny than the Badonkadonk are the other items the people have also viewed.

    The thing is, it actually doesn't look that bad, to a totally untrained eye, it may actually pass for a Ferrari (while parked). But i don't know why people bother... the Tiburon is a pretty car even when badged as a Hyundai.

    I remember back in the days when people put Ferrari and Lamborghini body kits on Fieros and MR2s and turbo charging its engines.

    The OP reminded me of a Pinto I saw last summer. It had the fish eye rear windows and orange/yellow rainbow striping. In addition, it had antique plates.
