VW Beetle Meets Chrysler PT Cruiser Woody In Horrific Mishmash 8

The eBay listing of this 2003 VW Beetle suggests that the car is the rare “Woody Edition” but in reality, it is just a horrific cream-colored Beetle convertible with styling inspired by the Chrysler PT Cruiser, an ugly vehicle in its own right.

Images from the listing reveal that the owner has managed to mimic the front grille of the PT Cruiser and slap the creation onto the front fascia of the Beetle. It makes an already putrid-looking car appear even worse.

Beyond the grille, fake wood paneling has also been applied to the sides and rear of the car. The Beetle itself is pretty hilarious but the description provided by the seller delivers even more laughs.

“OUR FAVORITE CUSTOMER IS SOMEONE WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY WANT AND HAVE MADE THEMSELVES FAMILIAR WITH MARKET PRICING *** WE GET STRAIGHT TO THE POINT *** THERE IS NO NEED FOR THE BACK AND FORTH NONSENSE *** *** REMEMBER YOU ARE BUYING A USED CAR, NOT A NEW ONE *** WE TRY OUR BEST TO BRING YOU THE NICEST CARS ON THE MARKET AND TO BE TRUTHFUL ABOUT OUR DESCRIPTION,” the listing reveals in capitals.

Perhaps it would be reassuring to ignorant buyers to know that the seller is “truthful” about the listing, but to us, it’s a little disconcerting that something like that needs to be stipulated in the listing. What’s more, we already know the description isn’t entirely truthful as there is no “Woody Edition” of the VW Beetle.

In terms of pricing, the car has a price tag $6,999, precisely $6,998 more than we’d be willing to pay.

Buy A 2017 LaFerrari Engine For ‘Just’ $385,000 5

Posted by Brad Anderson in eBay, Ferrari, Ferrari LaFerrari, Reports on 01 5th, 2018


Thought your Dodge Viper-powered Mazda Miata was cool? Well this 2017 Ferrari LaFerrari engine could serve as the heart of the greatest engine swap ever.

Recently listed on eBay, this LaFerrari 6.3-liter naturally-aspirated V12 engine has reportedly covered a mere 20 miles and comes with a sky-high price tag of $385,000. For that money, something significantly more powerful could be created but it would almost certainly fall short of this powertrain in the sound department.

Very few details about the engine have been provided in the listing so it’s difficult to know why there is a LaFerrari engine out there that’s not currently powering an Italian hybrid hypercar. One possible explanation is that the engine came out of a LaFerrari that crashed and was declared a write-off by the insurance company.

Whatever the explanation may be, there are certain to be some wealthy car collectors tempted by the exotic powertrain, whether that’s to use it, carefully store it in case their LaFerrari ever needs an engine replacement, or to simply make an expensive coffee table out of it.

Viper-Powered Jeep Wrangler V10 Is What You Dreamed Of As A Kid 4

Posted by Brad Anderson in Dodge Viper, eBay, Galleries, Jeep Wrangler, used cars on 01 4th, 2018


The Jeep Wrangler and Dodge Viper are two iconic automotive institutions so when the two come together, the results are expectedly incredible.

What you’re looking at is a Viper-powered Wrangler that has undergone a comprehensive transformation to make even the new-generation Wrangler seem rather boring.

One look under the Wrangler’s bright red hood reveals the mammoth 8.3-liter naturally-aspirated V10 engine that made the Viper so iconic. This engine pumps out roughly 500 hp and the listing claims that no expense was spared to ensure that the customized Jeep is much more than just a straight-line warrior.

In fact, numerous chassis modifications have been done to improve the vehicle’s off-road prowess. For example, there’s a beefed-up suspension system with increased travel, a custom built transmission, bespoke driveshafts with Tom Woods U-joints, a modified front axle, and a Dana 60 axle at the rear with 35 Spline shafts. Additionally, there are a set of 20-inch wheels with 35 Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ tires and brakes lifted straight from the Viper SRT10.

One look at the exterior of the Wrangler provides a hint of what’s going on under the skin but only those passing by with the most creative mind could ever guess the engine that sends power to the ground.

The current asking price on eBay sits at $52,000, a somewhat reasonable sum considering all the work that’s gone into the off-roader.

‘World’s First’ Tesla Model S Limo Selling For $67k On Ebay 22

Posted by Brad Anderson in eBay, Electric Vehicles, limo, Reports, Tesla, Tesla Model S, tuning, used cars on 12 22nd, 2017


A seller on eBay is looking to part ways with what they assert was the ‘world’s first’ Tesla Model S.

Based on a Model S 85, the highest bid at the time of writing was just a touch over $67,000, less than an ordinary 2015 Model S 85 would have cost you in 2015. Evidently, people don’t seem too keen on paying a premium for an electric vehicle that’s literally been chopped in half and lengthened.

The seller asserts that all of the new panels and underpinnings for the limo are made from aluminum and that it was built as an “advertisement project.” Curiously, work was never finished and the limo is reportedly only 90 per cent complete.

“This vehicle has tons of potential to become whatever the new owner has in mind. We are selling the vehicle as is without a warranty. We are a limo manufacturer and could finish the vehicle for an additional fee,” the listing states.

Sadly, this Model S isn’t the first victim of the limousine industry. Over the past decade, numerous premium cars have been spliced in two and transformed into limos, including a handful of Ferraris.

Man Shoots Genius Commercial To Sell His 1996 Honda Accord, Raises Over $100k 6

This used, 21-year old Honda Accord is a car “for people who have life figured out, and just need to get somewhere”.

The hilarious remark, along with the facts that “bug shield, rubber duckies, and tape converter are included”, but not the cat and coffee pot, are all part of the clever way a man living in the States is helping his girlfriend turned fiancée sell her 1996 Honda Accord.

In less than a week since it was posted online, the 1+ minute long video has gone viral, as it gathered in excess of 3 million views, at the time of writing. The footage could compete with a new car commercial, as it shows the vehicle being driven along California’s coastal roads, with even more clever remarks being made by the narrator.

In fact, the clip has proved to be so popular that it convinced tens of bidders to raise the price of the car from $499 to over $100,000, on eBay, in just a few days. Not bad for a 21-year old car with 2 owners and 141,095 miles (227,070km) on the clock that “drives like a dream”, huh?

However, due to an error, eBay cancelled the original auction, so the man was forced to start all over.
