Craigslist Hilarity: Ad For An LT1 Powered Pontiac Trans-Am Convertible Or Future Ex-Wife Is Awesome

This is one of those jaw dropping Craigslist ads that just makes you both smile and shake your head in sympathy with the poor guy who wrote it. Basically what we have here is a dude who is having to sell his 1997 Pontiac Trans-Am. The same guy is also apparently getting divorced from a woman who he does not seem to fond of. The way he manages to compare and contrast the car and his (soon to be) ex-wife is hilarious. Yes, it is kind of mean but we’re guessing that she isn’t exactly running around the place and praising him either.

We have showed you some pretty stinking’ hilarious “angry spouse” CL ads over the years her but this one may actually take the cake. There is not a single photo of the car, no real hards sales pitch to move it, but there is a guy writing something that you KNOW he took a lot of pleasure in. We’ll provide a link to the ad below, but first, here’s the text in case the original listing gets lost to the internet vapors!

(Because we’re pretty much certain this one will be disappearing fast, here’s the text of the ad for your reading pleasure) – 

I got to get rid of both….
Ive got a 97 Pontiac TransAm convertable for sale…

HER or the CAR?

Your Choice…

But The Car is Better Looking & A Whole Lot Cheaper!

1997 Pontiac TransAm Convertable

As much as this car & my wife are loved and will be missed. I am forced to part with both, So my loss is your gain here. The car has less than 73,000 miles on it, her- a little more-just saying. The car has never seen snow, she can be as cold as ice. The car was garage stored when not in use, she is making me move out to the garage. This car has extraordinary acceleration with the 5.7L LT1 V8, superior handling, excellent value, head-turning looks, unique interior design, great fuel economy, and a throaty boasting exhaust, which beats a bitchy mouth any day.
