Illustration for article titled Old Chevettes Are So Unwanted Someone Will Apparently Blow You To Get Rid Of One

The Chevette was never a great car, I get that. But I’m not sure the Chevette was so bad that it’s worth offering to fellate a stranger just to get rid of one. I mean, maybe it is, because there’s at least one person in Kansas City who’ll go down on you if you take a non-running ‘86 Chevette off their hands.

The offer for a blowjob-to-take-away-a-dead-Chevette appeared on, of course, Craigslist. I mean, this ad possibly is Craigslist, at its most fundamental level: oral sex, a non-running car, a slight air of exasperated desperation. It’s got it all.

The ad copy reads:

I’m a single 23 yo trying to get rid of the car. It needs just a little work to run but doesn’t run now. It’s an 86 Chevette. If you can haul it or fix it to drive away it’s yours. I will offer a blowjob to get it off my property. Please serious inquiries only.

There’s something strange about the “serious inquiries only” part, because that implies there’s someone out there who is taking the idea of getting fellated in exchange for a beat-to-shit Chevette very seriously. Maybe they’re even making a pro/con list.

Is this technically prostitution? I mean, nothing’s being given, just...taken. I mean, I guess whoever does this is giving the beautiful and valuable gift of the absence of a Chevette, which does make a lovely gift. Remember that for the holidays!
