A vin check confirms the last owner of the Mercedes was none other than Jimmy Hoffa. Police hope dental records will identify remains found in the trunk.

Or . . . (seller to buyer)

What's that? The CARFAX indicates possible flood damage? Not a chance, this title is clean!

This car has some minor rust spots but overall it's a beautiful old classic Mercedes, and remember, these cars will go forever.

Slight body damage, my mechanic said not to worry about it.

Historians generally agree, that it was George Bush's final act in the waning days of his administration that left this Mercedes as the sole remnant of civilization between the Mediteranean and the Caspian Seas.

Mint condition. (If you live in Atlantis).

Comes with the West Virginia guarantee: If it breaks in half, you get to keep both halves.
