the Maxima that was sold in the humorous but over the top way, has now been restored by Nissan, and has a place of honor in their North America HQ inTennessee. Indubitably, there is not a better/funnier/over the top video of a used car. Compliments to Nissan for "getting it" and going one better!

I first posted the original news about this amazing Craigslist ad 9 months ago

Luke Akers wanted to sell his 1996 Nissan Maxima GLE - so the Florida filmmaker turned on his cameras and yelled "Quiet on set!"

 The result is a one-minute videographic homage to mankind's monuments, narrated with all the intensity of a BBC documentary to sell a 17-year-old sports sedan.

he also did a print campaign:

The time has come for me to sell my beloved 1996 Maxima, a faithful car that now has to go. Of course, I can’t send it off without a proper goodbye.


Appropriately named, never before in history has a car had the words “time-tested” engraved into its lone spirit. Being offered up for sale I present to you a car that will make magic happen. It not only brings more admiring stares than any other car I have driven, it also has seatbelts! Amazing!

This pavement-yacht has a ride as smooth as a Pegasus’ backside. Its such a massive and impressive land-yacht it requires the use of steering fluid that has been designed to leak out from underneath the car when it has been exhausted from the majestic work that it has done, released into the wild when the great Maxima has decided its time has come.

 This Maxima no longer needs to let the odometer tell it how far it has gone – it has chosen a path of greatness and valor and refuses to let silly numbers determine its life!

Only moments after sitting it its comfort of properly weathered leather you will hear the squeals of glee that the powerful V6 motors makes as it groans to life. You are at the command of a great ship, with scars to prove that it has indeed been a warrior land-ship-yacht! This steed of sorts will allow you to get to where you are going at the mercy of its majesty!

Few have ridden its glorious wheels, and few more may see its greatness.

The orange Unifying Grasp and Lift safetY (aslo known as U.G.L.Y.) restrains the front hood to the maxima degree!
