CarMax Responds To A Homemade Honda Commercial

This guy and his fiancé know how to sell a used car. They made a homemade commercial to sell their 1996 Honda Accord with 141,000 miles and put it on eBay with a price of $499. After the video made its way to YouTube, the price soared to $150,000 after over 100 bids.

The video creator, Max Lanman, put out a pretty impressive video that is right up there with any commercial from an automaker on TV. It stars an actress as his fiancé and an internet-famous cat and pitches the idea that “Luxury is a state of mind”. The original eBay ad has been removed but CarMax saw the video and reached out, offering Lanman $20,000 for the Honda, $5,000 for the cat and $2,000 for the coffee mug featured in the “commercial”. Proof that good marketing is key, I guess. You can check out the whole video and CarMax’s response on

This week Katie has two gorgeous rides that best represent the quality and variety you’ll see at the Summit Racing Show Car Series. Former General Manager of the ISCA Bob Millard will be her guest to talk about the 28 car shows in the series. The International Car Show Association (ISCA) is the sanctioning body behind the series.

In the studio is a 1939 Ford Coupe owned by Bob’s wife Sandy. It’s got a small block Chevy 350 bored over to 355, custom paint, custom interior and a slick BASF “red” wrap. The second car belongs to Megan Tracy and is a show-stopping 1970 Camaro RS. It’s powered by a Chevy 350 making 385 horsepower and features custom interior and custom wheels.
