Worst Classified Ad. Ever.

Even though I cleaned up the horrendous grammar to make it legible, this Craigslist ad for a 1988 GMC truck out of Etna, Maine wins the award for the worst classified ad ever:
If you are a tire-kicker, don't even call me. This truck is worth more than
this ($300). Four-wheel drive works. Engine runs good.
It has a very
tiny drip that is landing on exaust and makes engine set on fire.

The other day I set under it for over a half-hour and could not see where
the drip was coming from, so I hauled a cord of wood home, which was about 20
miles. When I turned into my driveway, the engine set on fire.
[Emphasis and grammatical editing mine.]

The immediate dismissal of the discriminating car-buyer initially caught my eye and was made only more hilarious with the ad-poster's, um, frank appraisal of the truck.

Ah, if only the Democraps and Repugnants were as honest as this guy. Not to mention their Wall St. godfathers.
