FOR SALE: Hilarious offers made for 'ashtray on wheels'
AN ADVERTISEMENT for an "ashtray on wheels" has garnered hilarious offers as people seek to trade cigarettes and half-eaten food for the car.
Sean Connors posted an ad for his sister's "1990 something Mitsubishi Mirage" on the Sunshine Coast Community Board, going for a steal at just $550.
In the entertaining post, Mr Connors described the car as boasting "damage on probably every panel and a little bit of rust here and there".
"Maccas rubbish blends in well with the countless free rollies and filters you get with this car," he said.
"If you don't want a car and just want an ashtray, this is also the vehicle for you.
"Good for a cheap af daily or something you wanna [sic] drive into a tree, doesn't bother me."
The manual car comes with no airbags, 19 lighters, four "pretty well fresh as f--- tyres" and a good running gear, but no registration or roadworthy certificate.
Surprisingly, offers flowed in thick and fast for the car with some interesting trades suggested.
One person offered a $100 and a packet of Winfield blue cigarettes, while another said they could part with a 10 pack of Bundaberg ginger beer and a "half eaten sausage roll with what's left of the tomato sauce".
It's unclear if Mr Connors has taken anyone up on their offers.
