(The transmission is just fine, no matter what your mechanic says. Would a guy holding this adorable baby lie to you?)
As you may have heard, British MMA legend Ian "The Machine" Freeman has been having some tax issues lately. Seems he forgot to mention some of the money he’s made fighting internatonally over the years on his tax returns (or whatever the British version of tax returns are — tax bobbies? yeah, that sounds right), and to pay off his debt he is being forced to sell some cars. Specifically, Freeman will be forced to sell his Mercedes, and his wife will have to sell her Audi A4, both of which are reportedly "not in very good condition."
Dammit, don’t they know the first rule of selling cars that are not in very good condition is that you never, ever tell people that the cars are not in very good condition? Instead you tell them that the car runs great, rust adds character, and they’d better make their mind up soon because you have a guy coming to look at it this afternoon and he sounded really excited about it over the phone. If that doesn’t work, offer to throw in some sheepskin seat covers and/or Yosemite Sam mud flaps.
