      I think you already nominated this guy once before lol. It is pretty bad.
      I think he's now leading in the "most nominations" category.

      New idea that comes to mind: should we have a category for "most shady seller/dealer"?

      Yes; would just have to add it to the categories of the original post......but then maybe "least awesome" encompasses that category.

      This is old, I know, but this is just so hilariously uninformative, it's literally just titled "Volvo" I mean look at the default listing picture for christ's sake,:



      I laugh out loud every time I see it.

      2000 Volvo V70XC not used since summer of 2014
      Needed parts but with new baby decided a new car was
      the best thing to do.
      Thought I would have fun restoring it but now I want
      to restore a motorcycle...
      Good for parts
      Approx 200K miles. Good windows, doors, interior. Battery dead so not
      sure mileage. Has studded snow tires.
      Like thanks for telling us about the motorcycle and congratulations on your baby and whatever but, what about the price?

      Also, just want you guys to know I'm still saving all the ads in here. I can't update the original post since I'm over the limit for pictures; I guess I should have reserved like the first 15 posts or something for the rest of the nominees lol. Oh well, I'll come up with something at the end of the year when it comes time for the voting.

      Ok you actually got me to LOL with that one. Wow. I think this is a serious contender for winning the "worst modification" category.

      But the speedo is in mph on this one, and the gas gauge in gallons... Where are you guys seeing Celsius?

      Ohhh there we go, didn't look at those. So when you import a Canadian vehicle out have to swap to an American cluster?? My family imported a car several years ago from the US and it reads only in MPH, no change necessary

      DOT compliant clusters read mph and kph.

      Yeah but what I'm asking is if this car would have had to have its cluster swapped (by law) when it was imported. Canadian S70's read only in km/h

      Yes. All cars under 25 years old must be brought into compliance with all applicable DOT standards to be imported.

      Same story with my 1998 S70 T5 SE that was imported from Canada - it had to have the US cluster installed, but my HVAC controls still read in celcius.

      Hope you saved those pictures! They are gone now, replaced by other ones (the ad was recently updated, same CL link) which show one of the cars with a little bit less organic material on it.
