When in doubt, insult your public! That'll make them respect you and offer you more than you're asking for the car!

I found this on Kijiji (a service analogue to Craigslist, only in Canada). A BMW 750IL infected with chromitis...

http://montreal.kijiji.ca/c-cars-ve...QQAdIdZ53143848 (in French, sorry, and his French is pretty atrocious at that)

What's up with the hood scoop? Also you'll notice that he claims this car, at 12 years old, has *more* horsepower than the original specs indicate. It's probably the synergystic effects of the chrome.



Apparently it has bulletproof glass. Presumably to prevent BMW purists from shooting the owner.

Only 13 grand...

Just from that one interior pic I'm seeing no radio, a big gash in the driver's seat and a glovebox that doesn't seem to completely close... I think the "8/10 interior" might have been a bit on the charitable side. Not to mention that it's a 32-year-old car with a front plate that says "I'm not speeding, I'm qualifying".

I was checking out what was on Ebay today when my eyes glanced on this piece of absolute awesomeness... a 1970 MB 280SE convertible. Mint condition. I shall make it my life's goal to someday own that type of car and have a friend drive me around town just so I can sit up on the back seats and wave to random people.

Almost $100k for a car that's a year older than I am might be a bit much, but drat that's a nice set of wheels.

Anyone looking for a BMW Isetta? And by that I mean an Isetta that has had "some mods done to it", is missing side windows and the roof panel, has some holes in the body (filled) and in the floor (not filled)? Also to quote the seller, "As the pics. show, moving it is no problem, as it fits easily into the back of a truck" (does it even run?). Ebay goodness.

RARE LIMITED EDITION- 2000 PORSCHE 911 CARRERA 4 ALL wheel drive MILLENNIUM EDITION. #601 of 911 made worldwide. As per Porsche records, there is only 901 left. In recognition of its unique place in motoring history, Porsche has created a special limited edition of the 911 to mark a unique moment. Inside and out, it's more individual, more exclusive, and more stunningly elegant than ever before. It also comes complete with almost all of the special equipment options available for the standard 911 range. Including four-wheel drive, unique exterior paintwork CHROMOFLAIR VIOLET COLOR, natural leather interior, dark burr maple trim, navigation system, Porsche built in radar , Communication Management and much more. This Porsche Millennium is a sport car in which every last detail is imbued with the spirit of individuality and elegance that has always been the hallmark of Porsche. It¿s a stunning Exotic Porsche and a great opportunity to own a Dream car.

Either the price is wrong, the car is in poo poo condition, or the bottom has really fallen out of the used-car market. If not... it makes me wish I had $20k lying around somewhere, as the car is worth more than twice that if it's in good condition (this is in Canadian money).

Too bad it's in French so you can't appreciate it as much as I do, but this ad has it all -- all caps, numerous misspellings, no mention of engine or transmission, over 100k miles, and it's a 12-year-old A4 -- meaning that the engine may still run but nothing electric in the car is likely to. Oh, and the ad says the guy's never had any problems with the car, but the best picture he has of it was taken in a garage, and not a dealership garage either by the looks of it.

There's that word again, "invested".

And how much crap would end up in that bed if you actually drove that thing in the rain?

Not much as the guy cut most of the bed to accommodate the retardedly-big wheels, so whatever falls in would just fall through.

The whole bed would probably warp out of shape and wreck the tires/wheels if you hit a big pothole. The guy appears to have just cut it and not reinforced it to compensate for the loss of structural strength. I think the guy's trying to sell it because he suddenly realized how completely retarded the whole premise of this truck truly is.
