A particular product draw may attention as soon as I saw it on the page: A Land Rover Discovery II at an astonishing price of… $75! Yes, a car, a really big car at $75. ‘What’s the trick?’ was the first question that came into my mind. So I decided to visit the page. Curiosity… What did I found on that page? Not much. The name? Yes, it is correct, Land Rover Discovery II. The price? Also correct – $75. A real car? you ask. No, not a car, definitely, not a vehicle. Well, it was a vehicle once. Its current condition? Salvage. Ruin. Fortunately, not a total devastation. In fact, if you read the description, still sounds nice: transmission, transfer case, drive lines, wheels and axles still in place. Good enough? There’s more: All glass and sunroofs. That’s good. But wait, that’s even more: most of the interior. Excellent, isn’t it? But wait: No Engine. Come on, you didn’t raise your expectations, right?
Still, it’s only $75 and it’s not like in that case when the wife sold her cheating man’s Ferrari for $1 just to take revenge. This seller, the owner is just a normal guy, probably, who had his Land Rover abandoned in the back yard for whatever reasons. Anyway he sounds honest: you pay $75, bring a trailer and it is yours. If I were him, I would try to sell the Land Rover piece by piece. Or at least to give it to somebody for the same thing, to sell it piece by piece. Yes, I know, it takes time but I guess, it’s worth it, from a financial perspective. But, if you don’t need the extra money (because, let’s be realistic, they’re not so much) and only want to get rid of the used car and make some space in the back yard, the price should do it. There was a possibility to give it for free but I can only guess he already tried to give it for free and nobody called. Anyway he’s not interested in any other deals, the disclaimer is clear about it: do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers. The owner only wants to get rid of the car.
