A poster at VW Vortex snagged one helluva Craigslist find: a set of massacred and conspicuously-painted 18-inch Volks for $950. Is it a secret-coded message for when Gymkhana 3 hits (plus a Jalopnik call-out)? You be the judge. UPDATE!

Hmm... "Jim Conner 003" and "Hoonsville." I see what you did there. Other interesting tidbits include the date 9/14 and, strangest of all, that the buyer "must pay shipping from France." Gymkhana with a baguette? We don't care where it is, we just hope these tires are a sign that this version of Gymkhana 3 is more about spinning tires than spinning records.

We'll let you know what the Monster World Rally Team says when they wake up from a night of raging on energy drinks.


UPDATE: It's real!
