The Best Used Mini Cooper Ad In History

Back in November, “The Best Used Car Ad in Craigslist History” was brought to my attention through a Facebook post. I hit the "contact" button and got in touch with its author, New Hampshire’s own Tim McLaughlin. It's kind hard to describe…so I'll bring it to life for you. First, you'll hear Tim tell you what he's trying to sell. (A note to listeners: the Craigslist ad was a tad saucy…so I’ve added plenty of bleeps.)

Turns out, Tim did indeed sell the car to the single person who responded to his ad, but the buyer never even mentioned how it was written...I guess he just really wanted to grow some hair on his chest.
