The most relentlessly honest used car ad ever posted on Ebay.
If nothing else, it makes an excellent thinking rock.
Buying a used car can feel like a crapshoot. You can never really tell if the person you're buying from is being honest or trying to screw you over. But most buyers probably don't want the seller to be quite as honest as this eBay user. Right up front, he lays it out there: "If you are looking for an immaculate, well maintained example of a Mercedes e320 CDI... you have come to the wrong place." He goes on to admit the car "has been thrashed, raced, rallied, and the interior has been smashed up in a domestic, not to mention the time my wife booted the wing because I suggested she eat a salad or two."
He even includes a photo of the dent:
If the dent fits...
His frightening honesty seems to extend into his personal life as well, as he describes his wife, who models the car in multiple photos, as his "'more to love' missus." (Err...hence the dent.)
We do not want to read their anniversary cards.
The current owner seems pretty cool with whatever new owners want to do with the car. Want to use it for kidnappings? Well, here's a helpful photo of a large person fitting in the "boot" (that's British for trunk) (it also fits two smallish people):
You're going to want to tie up those hands and feet, though.
We just hope this car finds an equally loving home where it can continue to be ridiculed and neglected for years to come. Read the full ad.
