See the ad that made a 1996 Maxima so awesome, Nissan bought it

Luke Aker put his 1996 Nissan Maxima on Craigslist, offering it for $1,400 to anyone interested. The interested party turned out to be Nissan through its Director of Product Communications, Dan Bedore. The company purchased the car for $1,400 plus $1,000 donated to Aker’s charity of choice, the Wounded Warrior Project.


Why would Nissan care about a used car for sale on Craigslist? Because the ad was so totally awesome that they had to. Watch the video that accompanied the ad below and then click through to read more about it all at TorqueNews.
