Best of Craigslist: Aero-Awful 1986 Toyota Camry

June 24, 2009

We know Craigslist is the home of awful: used answering machines that use mini-cassettes (!), miles of baling wire in convenient 10-inch strips, and adult services that aren't so adult anymore.

Craigslist is a good place to find a cheap car, though--whether it's a racing lemon, a badly needed set of cheap wheels, or maybe just a tuner special in need of some love the current owner couldn't provide.

For your evaluation and possible purchase: this 1986 Toyota Camry from the best of Craigslist. The owner says it "runs good fast and fun." We believe him. (Only, we don't.)

The really important stuff here--and maybe it's just hipster ironic CL humor we're getting, you tell us--is the "custom made with heavy duty cardboard body kit," and the "custom cardboard hoodscoop and rear spoiler for super aerodynamic."

Tuned out with "15 inch chrome rims" and a "pink sandle air freshner for odor control" and "flame and dragon decals," this is clearly a best buy for recessionistas, Camry enthusiasts and really, anyone who didn't get enough packing tape and cardboard boxes out of their last move.
