Broken: Metro car dealership sign

1800uglyJay Heins submits a photo of a car dealership sign in Ottawa, Canada:

This is a sign in front of a car dealership called Metro, which I pass daily.

They are always cycling through pithy sayings but this one takes the prize. If you can't get the customer's business, you may as well insult them!


Lol, that's funny. Very effective, too, as it will get them word-of-mouth advertising.

I never thought I'd say this, but...

Not really a valid phone #... It would have to be 1800MYCARIS. Maybe "UGLY" is an extension?

I called 18006922747 (MYC-ARIS), and an automated voice said that they weren't able to take my call, and I should call back later.

Yeah, because Dodges are beautiful!?!?

Actually is a comment on the endemic brokenness of Dodges. As somebody who races junk cars as a hobby I can tell you that almost nobody races dodges because their transmissions don't last a race. I don't have the exact percentage but I would wager money that almost every 10 year old Dodge on the road has had their transmission replaced at least once.

If your curious the weak spots on Fords are their tierods and on GM stuff its the back axle but if you are racing a front wheel drive car on dirt you can live without a back axle.
