Craigslist: Car Aint Got NO ROOF !!!

Car Aint Got NO ROOF 1

The trick to buying cars, for many of us, is spotting the potential in what others would consider a basket case. The rust-free but otherwise needing everything special, the pimped out, the blown engine but otherwise perfect mechanic special. They’re out there.

Our own Alan Cesar sent this Car Aint Got NO ROOF !!!  ad into out tips line. To an untrained eye it looks like another butchered classic GM sedan, but to some of us…

Car Aint Got NO ROOF inside

My opinion, which is likely not to be popular – this can be un-pimped! The outside looks to be in decent condition. It obviously has no roof and no soft-top, so it’s a fair weather only car, can’t change that. The interior actually looks to be of high quality – lose the stitching and the system/screen, and could be decent. Obviously lose ridiculous wheels and suspension in favor of something more appropriate, I don’t know, would be a hell of an improvement. And bam… you go something… cool?

The biggest problem here is the asking price.

    I think you meant “un-pimped”? Why buy a custom car only to take off all the custom parts? (Don’t say because racecar.)
    “Up-pimped” is a better idea. This is a good jumping off point, but needs more candy apple, metal flake paint and an airbrushed image of Eccentrica Gallumbits, the triple breasted whore of Eroticon Six. A reverse-opening trunk lid and a rumble seat that really rumbles! I mean 1000 watt subwoofer rumble, you know?

    • Autocorrect. Damn it. Fixed.

      • Batshitbox

        Time to un-pimp ze auto!

    • Sean McMillan

      Ford Prefect approves this comment.

  • I’m curious who’s supposed to be watching those rearmost screens. Maybe the guy behind you in traffic?

    • You and your logic. Stop it.

    • Alan Cesar

      Play porn on your in-car entertainment.
      Induce distracted driving in the people behind you.
      Apply brakes.

      • I think it was our own [former? departed? lurking?] Juliet C. who once told of being in traffic behind a bunch of high school boys who were watching porn on the flip-down screen of mom’s minivan. Tisk, tisk.

    • Batshitbox

      See? That’s where my reverse trunk lid / rumble seat idea really completes the present build.

  • bigredcavetroll

    All the seller was trying to do was justify the name “Caprice” since Chevrolet didn’t exactly do a good job at it from the factory.

  • bigredcavetroll

    What’s a guy from Cook County, Illinois doing selling something on Miami Craigslist? Is he trying to save four orphanages and pocket some change too?

  • You could probably sell the wheels and tires and recoup a good chunk of the asking price. Oh, no…wait, it’s not 2006 anymore.

    I continue to not understand at all in any way WTF is the appeal of these monstrosities to anyone with the vaguest glimmering of understanding of vehicle dynamics.
    Nowhere else in the world would this be legal.

    • Batshitbox

      Whatever, BRAAAAAP!!!

      (Said in the spirit of the attitude. Not actually intended to wind you up.)

      • Rover 1

        My search for the Worst Car In The World, (said in obligatory Jeremy Clarkson voice) is now over.

        Thank you.

        • Vairship

          There’s competition out there…

      • dr zero

        Should that be “in the spirit of the altitude”?

  • dead_elvis

    “Car ain’t got no roof” seems like the most honest CL ad I’ve seen in maybe ever.

    (Misanthropy? I don’t know what you mean.)

  • Synchromesh

    My eyes, my eyes!!!!

  • Alff

    Has anyone ever seen a vehicle with wheels like this attain freeway speeds?

    • Phleeze… I’ve seen a vehicle with wheels like this race an endurance race.

    • Vairship

      I saw this “car” attain freeway speeds, so anything is possible!

    • Vairship

      Here’s more info:

    It’s not about vehicle dynamics. It’s about driving a cartoon car. I like this one. The roof removal just takes it over the top in a way an overwrought paint job couldn’t. I’ve softened on donks; I live in an area with a decent concentration of them, and they get used as daily transportation. They definitely break the monotony of normal traffic when you see one around town or on the freeway. They’re not trailer queens out here.

      So they’re like parade floats, only you can use them everyday?
