The Craigslist Ad That Just Creates More Questions

Even in 2013, Craigslist ads can be full of fuzzy information. Maybe it's because people think they're writing a newspaper classified ad and are being charged by the character. Maybe they just love to mess with everyone's head.

That ad for the mysterious "Mercedes Prototype" was full of bizarre information and you probably had a lot of questions after reading it. Questions about the Porsche chassis? Ford wiring? Local only? Huh?


Spiegel "Reddit" McTumblr was in the mood to break down the thoughts he had while reading every bit of the ad:
