The World’s Worst Car Is For Sale On Craigslist

Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly search for the most bizarre, awesome, and/or terrible vehicles that the online classifieds has to offer. 

Everybody loves to get a deal, and by deal I mean something that makes you seem more fiscally advantaged than anybody else. Last week we looked at the best-seeming deals the classifieds had to offer, and you found some smoking’ hot ones. We’ll deal with that in a minute, but first, this week’s deal!

When you were a kid did you play cops and robbers? I think this was an evolution of the previous generations’ cowboys and indians, and that of the generation prior’s crusader and heretic. One of the coolest parts of being a cop – a real cop – is the ride. That’s why this week I want you to find the coolest cop cars and cop bikes – and hell, let’s see if we can find a SWAT tank while we’re at it. It shouldn’t be too hard to do. And even if that doesn’t show up, we can probably come up with an impressively large collection of P71 Panthers.

As always, we want your finds to go down in infamy and not in the site’s spam filter. Follow any of the following advice and you’re crap will be known far and wide.

  1. Easiest way to not get caught in the spam filters is to create an IntenseDebate account. If you do so and your posts aren’t appearing, let us know at tips@hooniverse.info and we can put you on the whitelist
  2. If you don’t want an IDC account, you can create a wordpress.com account and do the same thing.
  3. If you’re the Ted Kaczynski type and don’t want any kind of account, then try to place only a single link in a comment and just drop any outgoing link in via its raw URL and not as a text link.

If you’ve got that, let’s deal with last week’s selection.

Sometimes a deal can look so great that it clouds your mind to all the money that you’d eventually have to spend, just because of the deal. That’s the case with the screaming’ deal found last week by RahRahRecords. This partially completed LoCost 7 is a jaw dropping $750. That’s likely the cost in materials for the frame alone, without it all having been already welded together. It also comes with a fiberglass nose and scuttle, plus a Miata rearend and custom driveshaft. The thing of it is, despite the parts being worth for more than the asking, there’s still a long way – and a lot of dollars – from here to squeezing your butt behind the seat and putting down the miles in this thing. Way to go RahRahRecords! Lotus Super 7 Replica (Locost) Project for Sale
