I know it's a bold claim, to say you've found the best Craigslist car ad ever. When a site exists where you could likely see an ad offering a 1985 Isuzu Stylus in exchange for a wood-burning set and 20 minutes of fellatio, the bar is pretty high. With that in mind, let's say this is the finest intentionally entertaining Craigslist car ad ever.
UPDATE Here's an interview with the two guys behind this amazing ad.
The owner, Joe, who seems to either have some decent design skills or an easily conned friend with said skills, is offering a 1995 Pontiac Grand Am GT for the low price of $700, marked down from the expected price of $199,999. His hyperbolic rhetoric about the car has an intoxicating effect, and I'm actually feeling like I want– no, I need– this Clinton-era example of what Americans can build at their absolute unfettered best.
We tried calling Joe, but of course his line was busy. Duh. There's probably a line around his block of people hoping to look at the car, or maybe just lick the oil pan to cure cancer or have their baby breathe some holy exhaust. We'll update if he gets in touch with us before he's raptured to Heaven.
I'm getting dizzy -– I think I looked at that unicorn too long. The draw of the Grand Am... it hurts, but feels so right! You look at the ad now. I gotta close this window and lie down.
(Thanks to everyone for the tip!)
