NZ has it's own version of eBay, called TradeMe. Like eBay, TradeMe allows users to sell their cars. Recently, a listing
appeared on TradeMe that was, well, judge for yourself...

Naturally, users were suspicious of a car, sorry 'turck' for sale with no license plates or AA report. They tried asking for more information in the Questions and answers section, and the user's story fell apart. In response, they did what any well-humoured Kiwi would do and trolled the sh!t out of him.
Some of the highlights:
Q: Is there a reward for finding the lost AA report?
Q: How long ago where the number plates rotated to ensure even wear?
A: Don't know
Q: When was the flux capacitor changed?
A: Don't know
Q: Roughly how many bongs do you dabble in per day? And do you think this may have something to do with not being able to find that aa report? Have you looked where you keep your stash?
Q: Picture this, we recreate the 'I'm flying jack' scene from Titanic but with me and you on the Bonnet of your turck. But totally different, like down a steep hill and we both have Mexican hats and mostauches. We drive to top of a steep hill, put the turck in neutral and let it purr. Quickly get in position on the Bonnet and you yell to me 'Were flying dude!'. It will be magical
The Turck now has its own Facebook page
