Found on Craigslist: 1,000-Pound Transformer-Style Wine Rack Made from Transmission Parts

For some, Craigslist is a great place to toss a bunch of junk and wait for suckers to buy it. For others, it's a place to showcase true ingenuity.

Exhibit A is evidence of both.

Introducing the half-ton, Transformer-style wine rack made from transmission parts. The six-foot, half-ton wine rack holds 32 bottles and enough geek cred to last a lifetime.

"There are only several times in one's life when one has the opportunity to purchase something that is RIDICULOUSLY COOL," writes the current Craiglist owner. "This is one of those moments."

The seller also notes that the used transmission parts are from automobiles and motorcycles that have been welded together, dipped into a solution to neutralize and remove any oil, painted gun-metal gray, and decked out with blue LED lights that will clearly outshine even your Christmas tree.

Given you can move it and somehow convince your girlfriend it'd make a great "conversation piece," it's all yours for $7,000.

Interested buyers can call 602-459-4819.
