We’ve seen all kinds of ways people have tried to set their Craigslist ad apart from the hundreds of thousands of used car listings. While some have become Internet famous, they haven’t always resulted in a successful sale. This ad for a 1988 205 GTI might not be funny, but it is an excellent model to follow.
Why is it that seeing a beat-up Peugeot 205 GTI parked on a Parisian side street melted my brain into goop and nearly pulled my heart out of my chest?
