This Guy Writes An Ad For His ‘Haunted’ Volvo V70 In The Most Honest And Hilarious Way, Finds A Buyer

0

It might be difficult to sell a well-loved car, so sellers often pull out their dirty tricks to make the car seem a lot better than it is in reality. Except for this Cornwall-based dad, Tommy Rayson, who put a brutally honest advertisement of his Volvo V70 on Facebook Marketplace with a hilarious description. Rayson thought there was no way he could sell it, so he decided to at least give people a good laugh.

In this case, you get what you buy. And what you get is “a skip full of dog s***,” a “haunted” car that’s attracting rats with 374k on the clock, “next-level filthy,” and you’ll probably need a priest’s blessing to get home alive. Who’d want that? Well, speaking of genuine advertising that might as well be genius…

Since it went viral and got attention in the media, Rayson thought it would only be fair to list it at a starting price of 99p on eBay and “give people a chance to snap it up before it goes to the scrappy.” The current highest bid is £255.00 (around $350), which is more than Rayson could have bargained for. Rayson told us he already has found a buyer and the deal will be closed on Sunday.

“Well, I bought it as it was cheaper than a taxi home. I didn’t actually realize it had no window when I bought it and the passenger door didn’t open,” Rayson told Bored Panda about how the old car ended up with him. “As I was driving it home, I though there’s no way I can sell this P.O.S., so I thought I’ll write a funny ad and give people a laugh.”

“I’ve done funny ads a few times and they always get good reactions, but nothing like this. I already found a buyer, the car will be sold on Sunday! I can’t believe this!”
