    Thread: Craigslist find thread

    1. 06-26-2015 10:20 PM #1
      I always see CLFOTD threads, but usually it's just one car. I'm trying to change that lol

      I think it would be good to have a thread containing all the cool Craigslist finds. If you guys are like me you are always checking different states to see what is new. Some guys on here may even be looking purchase one of the cars, I don't mind sharing what I find and would rather someone on here buy it, if I couldn't afford it at the time.

      I'll have few links shortly....

      This has potential to be TCL gold!


      A recent find was a 97 sc300, royal sapphire pearl with 25k miles, original owner and the we're asking 7,500. If I didn't have a supra project, I would have bought it in a heartbeat!

      There used to be a thread like this for cars under $3000 I think. It was definitely a cool thread.

      One of the best was to search "rare" in your area and post the first viable/decent/interesting/outlandish thing that came up.

      Hmm and no pics of the driver's side...

      I love searching for "rare" because (not so) great things come up:

      2003 Rav4: http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lgb...090802439.html

      Or :damage":

      Only $4500 for this Infiniti!:

      http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst...083048940.html

      "Frame is straight"

      http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sgv...060477715.html

      2015 BMW 328xi already has a salvage title but seller simply says "The car was in an accident and the door was hit, but it was fixed with authentic parts"
      http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac...095875254.html

      2014 Audi Q5 "salvage title due to minor damage to front of car"

      http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac...087204458.html




      I love this stuff.

      Another way to find comedic gold is to search "custom" or even better "custum"

      As long as people keep posting pictures I'm sure it'll be okay. But when someone only posts a link (which will likely be taken down after a short period of time) the thread will just be full of dead links.

      Searching "rare" in the NY area turns up some nice cars just saw an R63 for sale, I've only seen one in person and that was at the dealership.

      If those wheels are from what I think they are from I don;t think I would call that 'perfect condition'

      I unbanned Patrikman.

      I also originally banned Zuk & JIMP.

      Because German red paint cares only for time not mileage.
      Yes, I know I'm a jerk. That doesn't make me wrong, though.

      If that's the car I think it is, the current seller is completely full of sh*t. That appears to be the car that sat parked behind a house in downtown Mooresville for several years. Spoke with the owner ~4.5 years ago, and he had had the interior recovered, carb re-built, car repainted, and a bunch of other work completed before injuring his leg and parking the car. If the same, the mileage is not at all correct, and the story in the Craigslist ad is a complete fabrication. I won't say with 100% certainty, but it looks identically optioned and with the exact same damage to the rear bumper as the car pictured..
