    This is a hilarious auction!

    I know it's a car auction on Ebay, but it is on a potentially vintage car, 34 years old.....

    The description is the best ebay description I've ever read! I found it in Foo and thought you C&V types would at least get a great laugh out of it!

    That poor seller...but I do like his photo of the invisible bike, and of course, the cat riding the invisible bike. I see tolfan enjoyed it so much that he made it into his avatar .

    I had a new 1975 Plymoth Duster and can relate to that seller. Although I think I paid about $4500 for it new. I can't imagine why anyone would pay $3000 for it 35 years later. In retrospect, it wasn't worth $3000 new. It had a new invention: self changing oil. All you had to do was add a quart every fillup and change the filter every 5000 miles.

    That car is super clean...a strange ad to be sure. The photo of the cricket for good luck is a nice touch. I'm pretty sure those slant 6 engines were indestructible and ran forever, though. The engine probably still has a good 200,000 miles of life left.

    My car has a slant 6 but its not a dodge. The gas mileage is great, over 30 mpg on the highway. If I believe the mpgometer almost 40. I see adds for hybrids that dont claim mpg that high. Wish I had the money , I always wanted a Dart.

    My dad's Plymouth Scamp had the slant six and it lasted well over 350,000 miles and all he did was change the oil regularly and general upkeep....it outlasted him, actually.....we sold it in '99 after dad died...

    If mine only needed a quart of oil per fill up, I would have been really happy! I had a 72 Dart thatI drove from Baltimore to Pittsburgh once a month...6 quarts each way
    Of course if anyone followed too closely I could give them a nice coating of oil with my "fogging system".
    How much ya want for that Classic Huffy?!
    I heard Paris Hiltons parents have downgraded her to a Motel 6...

    I had a 1973 Plymount Valiant 2 door with a 318 & dual exhaust sold to me by a reverend. Actually it was more like an exorcism he performed on his own garage. Biggest POS I ever owned and I owned a ton of 'em!

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"
