Wanting to prank his girlfriend of only one year (maybe a little soon to try to sell her), Dale Leeks put her up for auction on eBay. However, he was quickly blown away when the bidding reach $119,000.
The more than honest listing stated:
“She starts OK but after that there’s a constant whining noise that I can’t seem to stop. Bodywork is fairly tidy but close up shows signs of wear. No serious damage but you can see that she’s been used.”
“Please bear in mind when bidding she’s 37 years old. Basically first thing in the morning she can be very temperamental, once warmed up the whining noise lessens but I would be lying if I said it goes away completely. The rear end leaks a bit but nothing that can’t be plugged.”
“Any offers considered…would be interested in a part exchange with a younger model. Sold as seen, no returns.”
The ad was removed by eBay after 24 hours for violating the website’s policy against selling human body parts or remains.
Props to eBay for doing their part to fight human trafficking. Like the old saying goes, it takes a village. Respect.
When the dust settled Leeks admitted, “I would have been quite sad to see her go, but it wouldn’t have been so sad ‘cause I would have been crying in my Ferrari or my Lamborghini.”
Sounds like he’s a real keeper. No word on whether or not they’re still together, but it looks like they got the wanting to “sell you on the internet” phase out of the way early.
Best of luck to the both of them.
