Weird Craigslist listing: A drivable whale-mobile that's not street legal [Technology]

Print
I think we found Nemo or maybe it's just a dude with a strange obsession with Moby Dick's infamous white whale and in need of cash to pay back child support. Either way, this tail-wagging, non-street legal, blowhole blowing whale-mobile has made a splash on Craigslist.
 
The below was provided by the poster (WARNING: do not consume beverages while reading, else it may end up on your computer):
 
This one of a kind "WhaleMobile" is for sale. It needs new tires, but otherwise starts right up and runs fine. Not street legal, but still fun to drive, good for birthday parties and events. A lever inside the cockpit controls the whale tail, and allows some up and down motion. Water pump inside cockpit still works, and will build up pressure to be released through blowhole up top. It has working headlights. 

This was a project my grandfather worked on when I was a kid, and it used to terrify me, as I have an inexplicable fear of these evil creatures. I am hoping to sell it by the end of the month, as I owe child support and don't have the cash to cover it at the moment. This was built off of the frame of an otherwise perfect 1986 Yugo Cabrio. The vehicle itself has 38,000 miles on it, but it was badly damaged in a hailstorm and the bodywork was completely demolished. My grandfather got the idea of turning it into a WhaleMobile off of some cartoon, and he took his crazy idea and ran with it. 

Serious inquiries only, but all are welcome to come and see the WhaleMobile in action. Please leave the harpoons at home. 

Call me directly at 502.448.1137 for more details, leave a message if I don't answer.
