This ad for a 21-year-old station wagon might be the best car commercial ever

May 12, 2014 By Joey

Swedish art director Castor is selling his 1993 Volvo station wagon for $1,100, but being an artist, he’s going about it a little differently than most people selling their cars…

    Wow!! Can’t imagine someone do it for a second hand 1993 car. That haunted backseat will make me think twice before I fork out my money to buy it. Is that the face of Jimi Hendrix?

  2. Colby Eskimo says:

    I’d buy! But yeah. .. not a 93. No black grill, turn signals wrong. ..or maybe that’s e
    Just euro spec?

  3. Jerry Greenberg says:

    There is no possible way I would buy a vehicle this old. I would not even take it for free! The cost of the insurance, and road plates for it would exceed what it is worth. The cost of servicing such an old beast would be prohibitive! Chance of failure is extreme!

    He should use it as a second vehicle until it dies, or drive it to the scrap yard and collect its value for scrap metal. For the price he is asking you can find eight to ten year old cars with newer construction, technology, and would be lower in cost to service.

    1. Brian says:

      Only a stupid white man would say that Jerry. Being brand new will never be better than a tried and tested proven piece of solid machinery. Relax a bit.

  4. Peter says:

    I also have a 1991 volvo wagon with 225,000 miles on it that gets 28mpg,I use it for a six day a week 35 mile
    Commute and it only cost me gas and regular maintaince.I would use it for parts or vice versa.

  5. Vicki OConnell says:

    I love it and would buy it to replace my 1990 chevy station wagon except I don’t know where you are and I can’t drive a stick shift. I fell in love with the same car in a 1975 model in my teen years. It was orange too. I guess I’ll just have to be content with the dream. Living and loving it in Carmichael , California
