Samantha´s roliga annons på Facebook för mammans skadade bil har fått folk att asgarva och många älskar den annorlunda approachen.
Kvinnan som skulle sälja sin mammas ”gamla trogna pärla” lade ut annonsen den 3 november.
Hon sa att inlägget fått massor av gilla-markeringar sedan det publicerades och att människor ”älskar det”.

Hennes annons för mammans skadade bil i helhet
”Here we have a perfect example of why elderly drivers shouldn’t have powerful cars! This Astra 1.8i was clearly too much of a beast for my mother!
Not content with only dithering at 20mph even on dual carriageways, she felt it was equally important to maintain this speed in supermarket car parks, even to the detriment of the bollards she inevitably scraped (see photos of the front LH wing for this example!)
The rear scratch came from that time she accidentally reversed over her prized collection of garden gnomes.
The trim coming loose on the rear LH door was from the time she clipped a cyclist and snagged his leg before dragging him at high speed (thats 26mph for her) down the A610!
So that’s the bad stuff out the way but what about the good stuff? Well, the car has got loads of official Vauxhall paperwork and has always been maintained!
We had an MOT done last week and it sailed through no probs. The only two advisory notices were the front tyres being close to the limit of wear, the way my mother drives this equates to around 65,000 miles of life left!
This is a car that would suit someone that can make use of 4th and 5th gears (these gears are brand new never been used!!!) This car had two keepers before my mother but they too were elderly I think?
(They might not have been old but the paperwork shows they took complete care of everything and I don’t think kids these days take their car to have their washer fluid checked at the dealership lol).
I truly can’t believe my mum ever used the airbags, but the car has these, plus alloy wheels that are not in bad condition… my mum likes to park so that cyclists and small minibuses can drive between her and the kerb so the wheels look ok!
Taxed until end of November. It’s a 16v engine which I believe is 15 valves more than mother ever needed. Central Locking, Elec windows 2x remote key fobs, (although one of them needs a new battery as it is intermittent, I think she swapped it for her the one in her hearing aid???)
The radio is already preset for ‘Golden Oldies’ stations, whatever that means. Mum wanted you all to know this, she felt it was important!
Viewing is defo recommended, It’s such a nice car for its age apart from the rubbish bits… drop me a message to arrange a socially distanced tyre kicking. Serious buyers only. Car located in Eastwood. £650.”
Hon sa: ”Normalt skulle jag inte lägga ner så mycket tid på att skriva en annons, men den är för min mamma som precis köpt en ny Mini.
Angående den enorma responsen på inlägget sade hon: ”Det är skoj och bra, men jag behöver få bilen såld och mitt Facebook-flöde att lugna ner sig lite.”
