Welcome to a new feature in which we explore the baffling and sometimes accidentally insightful world of Craigslist auto ad language. Today's installment comes from Indianapolis:
"67 nova good parts car very solid car have two truck loads of parts - $600 (Indianapolis )"
Car very solid no title but I'll let every thing go for
600 dollars rear end doors grills hood has a new
Motor in it head carb power gilde tranny new floors
Corner of the quarter been replace
My number I's 750-XXXX my name I's Dan
I have pictures On my phone
I can't figure how to up load them thanks
Dan, you make a powerful statement about excess ("two truckloads of parts") and loss ("I'll let everything go..."), identity ("I's 750-XXXX" and "I's Dan"), and frustration in the digital age. We hope you sell your Nova--itself a linguistic symbol, as it means "new"--and find rebirth with the cash it brings.
