Cheap For A Reason: 2000 Cadillac Catera

The really expensive Nissan Pulsar NX we featured earlier today got me asking the question — what is the cheapest car on your local craigslist? First, you need to remove any cars/trucks by dealers because you’ll get all kinds of lease junk, then you will need to add a bunch of tags that remove junk listings, like “-para -credit -rental -rent -lease -junk -buy” to the search field. Now, you find the good stuff. Some of it is things like Volvos with busted transmissions, or Mercedes-Benzes that have been rolled, but then you find the good stuff. Like this 2000 Cadillac Catera with only 50k miles on the odometer for $600. Wait, is it a scammer? What kind of scammer would pay $5 to put up an ad for a Catera? Seriously. This has to be real. Really awesome. Of all the cars to attempt to trick someone into sending you money, I can’t believe this isn’t real. It’s gotta be real…right?
