The eBay listing of this 2003 VW Beetle suggests that the car is the rare “Woody Edition” but in reality, it is just a horrific cream-colored Beetle convertible with styling inspired by the Chrysler PT Cruiser, an ugly vehicle in its own right.
Images from the listing reveal that the owner has managed to mimic the front grille of the PT Cruiser and slap the creation onto the front fascia of the Beetle. It makes an already putrid-looking car appear even worse.
Beyond the grille, fake wood paneling has also been applied to the sides and rear of the car. The Beetle itself is pretty hilarious but the description provided by the seller delivers even more laughs.
“OUR FAVORITE CUSTOMER IS SOMEONE WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY WANT AND HAVE MADE THEMSELVES FAMILIAR WITH MARKET PRICING *** WE GET STRAIGHT TO THE POINT *** THERE IS NO NEED FOR THE BACK AND FORTH NONSENSE *** *** REMEMBER YOU ARE BUYING A USED CAR, NOT A NEW ONE *** WE TRY OUR BEST TO BRING YOU THE NICEST CARS ON THE MARKET AND TO BE TRUTHFUL ABOUT OUR DESCRIPTION,” the listing reveals in capitals.
Perhaps it would be reassuring to ignorant buyers to know that the seller is “truthful” about the listing, but to us, it’s a little disconcerting that something like that needs to be stipulated in the listing. What’s more, we already know the description isn’t entirely truthful as there is no “Woody Edition” of the VW Beetle.
In terms of pricing, the car has a price tag $6,999, precisely $6,998 more than we’d be willing to pay.
