Default Craigslist Unique Finds Thread

I'm gonna start this thread and here are the rules...
1) Anybody can upload no more than (1) craigslist link in a 24 hour period, and it has to be of something rare/ unique and there has to be a story behind it of what you were searching for to come across it/ your thoughts and opinions about the listed item.
2) Does not have to be SFW, but if NSFW...must post "NSFW" in the title.
I'll start...
http://cnj.craigslist.org/cto/3103439245.html
I found that at breaktime at work (9:10PM) while I was searching for ****** jeep stuff on my iphone craigslist app. I have no idea why that was on the list, but it was, and I have never heard of that car. It's pretty cool though considering it's fiberglass. Anyone ever hear of a Markos? For some stupid reason it reminded me of one of those.
Looks like it would make a pretty cool project, but for $4500, it looks like it's hammered and in need of a $hit load of work.

I asked him if he would take 2.7k... this is why I hate having an automotive hobby. So now I have to wait after my two week tour to buy it, that is if he still has it.

It has a flange sealing issue, which in my eyes is easily fixed when you have machinist buddies and a welder.

This is what irritates the F* out of me about Craigslist - the incompetence of most sellers. When I sell something on craigslist, I take pictures. I post the pictures. I list anything relevant in the text of the post.

Ads like "heres my kickass miata its truboed stanced and slammed $14k don't call me unless u r serious !!!" make me want to drive to the poster's house, take a copy of The Blue Book of Grammar and Punctuation, and stuff it down the poster's throat page by page.

I saw a craigslist ad one time...it was a picture of 2 tires mounted on wheels. It read "2 tires mounted on wheels for sale."
Really?? You have enough time to post photos, but not enough time to list the tire brand/ size, tread information, or what the wheels fit/ came off of?

I believe this has been posted before, but remains one of my favorites. I imagine Joe Perez as the caller, because it sounds like something he'd post.
