Dedicated thread to those less then wholesome car ads. I don’t care if it’s 928 related or not to be frank. I want to be shocked and entertained.
End of story.

First contender:

Was it the vomit or the interior fire?
Or, maybe Little Johnny’s penchant for delinquency that lost him his dream car?
Regardless, detailed history can really boost a sale price.

I'm trying!.....the OP was ridiculously classic.

Trust me, the motor is exceptionally strong, Excellent condition, and "can even drive on the interstate."

Highlight pics include interior molding falling off driver's seat and worn tires.

This one hits close to home boys.
It’s not car per se, actually it looks like it’s a S3 with good bones and I hope someone finds her and loves her.
The yikes is that the brains are hooked up in the engine bay. God knows what’s been going on here.

That one’s gone. Might not even be worth $3k for the (remaining) parts.

I think the engine bay is just a convenient storage area for the motor; the ECUs are plugged in to the harness but I’m sure the CEL connectors, o2, etc., are just dangling.

The motor is worth -$2000 to $2000: a day or two to get to eyeball the cylinder walls and then it might be worth $4k before you pay for tear down, packing, pallet straps, and pallet.

I didn’t read the ad: just looked at teh pitchurs.
