5k: Anatomy of an eBay Listing: 1992 Subaru SVX LSI

 You might consider yourself lucky if you’ve ever had the opportunity to own Subaru’s first modern halo car, known as the Alcyone in Japan or the SVX here in the USA.  If you take a photograph of Italian Giorgetto Giugiaro’s beautiful body shape, you might find that the view isn’t what you’d expected, and what you really need is to lower the camera by about 3/4’s of an inch. Logically, you step out of your boots, back a few steps and click…snap…wrrrr…perfection.  Find this 1992 Subaru SVX LSI here on eBay currently bidding for $4,950 reserve-not-met with $6,950 buy-it-now located in Alexandria, OH with 4 days to go.

Happy that the boot-free profile picture is complete, you turn your attention to the contents of the text portion of the listing.  Don’t include any useful information like why the stop lamp warning light is illuminated, and instead focus on trite expressions like you’ve seen the rest, now see the best or I have yet to see one in this condition or one SVX in the hand is worth two in the bush.

 Time for an interior shot.  You know that of the 14,000 SVXs imported to North America, all were sold with a 4-speed automatic transmission…but you don’t want to draw attention to this fact in the interior pics…what about carrots?  Yeah, plop a bag of carrots in the passenger foot well and everybody will be awed by your healthy food choices and they’ll forget about the fact that you wrote I never smoked in the car or allowed anyone to eat or drink.

Clearly carrots are good for the front seat, but they would look ridiculous in the back…what about a bag of apples behind the rear seat?  Its not like this car has a very useable trunk area to store your produce, so you might as well let it roll around the floor.
