Father’s ridiculously honest eBay advert for his son’s car

If you’re selling items on eBay it’s usually best if you’re honest with your descriptions.
That’s exactly what one father did when selling his son’s car, which he described as ‘a dustbin’ and claimed the seats don’t work because so many girls had got in and out of it.
Nigel Stewart-Stone, 50, was so fed up with 19-year-old Dalton’s careless attitude to the motor he titled the eBay listing ‘who would buy it?’.
He apologises for the state of the black Renault Clio, saying it is full of litter and has dents in where his lad climbed onto it to try and get in the house.
Mr Stewart-Stone described the car as perfect for any teenage boy because ‘it will save them all the time and effort that my son has put in to it, getting it this way’.
He says Dalton didn’t notice the clutch was slipping – because he always plays his ‘deafening’ music too loud.

Mr Stewart-Stone goes on to say the passenger seat doesn’t move back and forth any more because ‘[too] many [girls]… have been taken for rides in the car’.
He says his son never put in oil or water or washed it, and never used car mats which he kept in the boot instead – next to a spare tyre which has a puncture.
Mr Stewart-Stone says he’s selling the car because his son now has a new one ‘which, incidentally, will be coming up for sale in a similar state in some years to come’.

He signs himself off on the ad as a ‘devoted father with much patience’ and says the car has ‘absolutely no warranty’.
Despite the unflinchingly honest advert, bidding on the car has already reached £101 after 33 bids with five days of the auction left to run.

‘I wrote the advert after my son’s car packed up and he had a bit of a panic,’ said Mr Stewart-Stone, of Newton Abbot, Devon.
‘He’s an estate agent so needed something nice to go to work in. I sat down and looked at the car and thought who is really going to buy it anyway?
‘Then I started grinning to myself about the things that he had done to the car. It’s just typical of a teenager. When we bought it there was nothing wrong with it.
‘I have had so many text messages and emails through eBay and on Facebook.
