Craigslist At Its Finest
A man’s car ad for his 1999 Toyota Corolla has gone viral. And that’s pretty much because he doesn’t hold back. The man, who is located in Houston, Texas, wants $2,500 for his car.
And while he has since taken down the ad, thanks to Twitter it now lives on.

Here are just some of the things this hilarious ad says:
You want a car that gets the job done? You want a car that’s hassle free? You want a car that literally no one will ever compliment you on? Well look no further.
The 1999 Toyota Corolla.
Let’s talk about features.
Fancy wheels: nope
Rear view camera: nope…but it’s got a transparent rear window and you have a fucking neck that can turn.
Oh, but there’s more:
Let me tell you a story. One day my Corolla started making a strange sound. I didn’t give a shit and ignored it. It went away. The End.
You could take the engine out of this car, drop it off the Golden Gate Bridge, fish it out of the water a thousand years later, put it in the trunk of the car, fill the gas tank up with Nutella, turn the key, and this puppy would fucking start right up.
This car will outlive you, it will outlive your children.
Things this car is old enough to do:
Consent to sex: yes
Rent a car: it IS a car
This car’s got history. It’s seen some shit. People have done straight things in this car. People have done gay things in this car. It’s not going to judge you like a fucking Volkswagen would.
The ad is wrapped up with this:
Let’s face the facts, this car isn’t going to win any beauty contests, but neither are you. Stop lying to yourself and stop lying to your wife. This isn’t the car you want, it’s the car you deserve: The fucking 1999 Toyota Corolla.
Perfection. Now of course someone was so entertained by the car ad that they probably bought it, and that’s why the ad has since been taken down. But this is how you sell a car, ladies and gentlemen. Just be honest. No need to put your shitty car on a pedestal.
