Actual Facebook ad for a car near me; the seller looks like a character!
Wow. What on earth to say about her?
I mean, who the hell lets a hedge-fence arrangement encroach that far onto the driveway?
…and those bare patches in the grass!
Yosemite Sam’s mother has aged well though hasn’t she?
Great horny toads! You’re darn tootin’ she has!
If I wasn’t headed out of town soon, trying to tie up loose ends at work, I’d arrange to drive about an hour just to meet her! The Lexus appears pretty sweet too, 32,000 miles are claimed and it looks like you could eat off the driver’s side carpet.
No doubt granny kept that rifle handy for people who tried to eat in the car. Although one wonders if she smoked in the car.
32k miles, reeks of cigs, other side’s paint is scratched to heck from the hedge.
Am I the only one that thinks the lady looks photoshopped in front of the car? I’m not sure why it would be necessary, plenty of old ladies with guns & cigs. Is this from a meme or something I’m too old to get maybe?
After taking another look, I think you might just have something there…..!
“Yes, the second gen SC is a chick car, what of it?”
NO TIRE KICKERS!
Now scram, Varmint.
Guns and cigarette aside, this brings to light one of my absolute peeves with ads. I am buying the damned car, not trying to find a date. Keep people and other items out of the mix. Granny, I am buying the car, not your affections, so just post a picture of the car online and post this one on your Tinder app. However, this goes with dealers putting models in the photo-shoot with their cars. Again, if you are selling the model with the car, that’s one thing, but if you”re selling me a just the used car, just pictures of the car please.
I don’t know; I kind of like the personality photos and personal effects.
Unless it’s something uncomfortable, like “Free Candy” scrawled across a panel van.
Well, you’ve hit on something there, and I’m in full agreement. Mind you, I’ve got no hard and fast rules or prejudices when it comes to online ad hopping, but I can’t stand the models in ads either. I can’t really put my finger on a single reason, but I can certainly point to a few that stick out. I mean, for one thing, if the car is desirable and the price is right I’m not going to be more enticed by a scantily clad woman with bad 80’s hair caressing the fender or draped over the hood. Alright, I’m gay, so there’s that, but it’s also just tacky. And a little desperate. And I suppose I’ve got some streak of latent feminism, because I just think it’s inappropriately exploitative. And with all that in mind, I’m highly unlikely to have any interest in the person who posted that ad, because my preconceived notion is that he’s likely an ignorant cretin. But that’s just me.
Now, the ad in question on the other hand, I might just be inclined to reach out and inquire about. I’ve gotta give the poster credit for poking some good clean fun at one of the most annoying aspects of automotive advertising. This lady looks like fun, if maybe a little scary.
I’ll bet she’s fun at Bingo!
If you like a bad loser!!!!
“I know what you’re thinking, punk: has the odometer turned to six digits or only five? To tell the truth, I kinda lost track myself in all this excitement. Do you feel lucky enough to peek in and take a look? Well, do ya? Oh, a Carfax report, huh? Draw!”
Would you buy a used car from…
Low ballers and time wasters will be dealt with in an appropriate manner.
“Now git yerself in and let’s go for a little test drive…”
That looks about right for here in SC . . .
Everyone says the price is firm. She means it.
I wondered if there might be a legit reason for the show of force, what with all the scam artists out there who will come rob you of your car, and maybe hurt or kill you in the process……..they wouldn’t pick on her.
But if you are concerned about personal safety, just go sell it to CarMax and get hosed. It’s just not worth it.
They may also just be trying to get attention for their ad. There’s literally hundreds of Lexuses on FB for sale within 75 miles of me.
I’ve never bought or sold a whole car on a FB ad, but I have bought and sold tires, wheels, etc. Legit buyers and sellers in my experience agree to meet at a neutral place like a fire station…..and if you 1. each show up on time and b. look legit, and are driving the car you said you would be in, 3. you complete the sale. If anything doesn’t look right, leave.
From a FB ad, I recently agreed to meet a retiree at a supermarket in a luxury development an hour away, to buy a set of new Michelins for my ES350…..same size was on a Mini Cooper that he bought and immediately put new wheels and tires on. $120 for four new Michelins with the nubs still on them!
There are deals to be had out there, just use your head.
Welcome to the complaint department at Ma Barker Motors.
Is she related to the 92-year-old woman who shot her 72-year-old son because he wanted to put her in an assisted living facility??
probably a craigslist add, hence the gun. she’s being safe and letting you know whats up!!
Annie, get your gun!!!
Bonnie Parker somehow survived the ambush.
“Greetings from the Lexus, Tobacco, and Firearms Administration.”
“Let’s see Mr. Drysdale try to repossess my car!”
Git, you varmit!
Hmm, Remington 1100 in 12 gauge? She seems up for the recoil.
Proof that there’s “Still” money in the hills of Kentucky if you know what I mean…
I love the car however…..
Betty Draper lives!!!!! (mad men reference)
Shooting at more than pigeons??????
What do you suppose she’ll replace the car with? What would make a good impression when she drives into the parking lot at “Chico’s?”
A 370-Z? An F-Type? A ‘Vette? Is she ready to to make the jump to an SL550?
A middle-aged Regina George!
Is she saying, “buy this car or else!” – I saw lots of these when I visited Grapevine, Texas in 2006.
She wants what she paid for this car back in 2002. Says it is a collector’s car. One of a kind. She bought it as an investment. She also doesn’t like you.
