Someone Is Selling A Car For $50 In Montréal And The Ad Is Amazing

"REALLY NEGOTIABLE if you're cool."

Posted on

Someone in Montréal, Que., is selling a 2001 Toyota Echo on Kijiji for $50 — a pretty stellar deal for a car with 200,000 clicks on the odometer.

"She's ugly as hell but she always starts and has never let me down," the poster writes in heavy joual. He says he's ditching the Echo to get a 4x4 to cope with the city's "shitty snow removal."

So what's the catch?

For one, there's no photo of the car in the ad because the vehicle is stuck in a snow bank. "So I put a picture of the dog that's pissed in it," the poster says.

But don't worry, the ad says the smell of urine goes away if you roll down the windows and drive fast.

There are also apparently cracks in the windshield from when the seller hit it last year. He says he was frustrated that the car was stuck in the snow.

In other words, the car needs new snow tires (and probably a windshield).

On the bright side, the seller says the car accelerates "fast as fuck" and brakes well, too, because Mr. Muffler screwed him into replacing the front brakes last year.

Another downside: The car likely needs a new battery from all the times the seller's girlfriend left the lights on last year.

To make up for that, the seller is offering a FREE bonus: "The trick to how my girlfriend and her sister got it boosted by using Tinder."


If that's not enough compensation, there's a trunk that works well for dry foods or wet ones, like gold fish.

"If you're smart, I'll show you what's what so that while the lil' fish asphyxiates, your baseball glove doesn't become a portobello culture."

How kind.

The radio, for one, is in solid shape for listening to artists like Barbara Streisand, the ad says. But it doesn't do anything to improve Montréal radio host Isabelle Maréchal, says the seller, who then goes on a mini-rant about FM 98.5's programming.

All in all, the car is quite the bargain. "She's REALLY NEGOTIABLE if you're cool. And you hurry up to get it out of Mtl-North near Papineau."

'Cuz the longer you wait, the more the price goes up.

"Basically, the price rises every time she gets a ticket..."
