Write, using 80-100 words, a reason why somebody should buy your car.

I watched a show on Nickelodeon called The Adventures of Pete & Pete and there’s this episode where a student in an algebra test questions the authority of the teacher by simply asking “Why?” (a play on the fact that they were solving for Y). The teacher is stumped and can’t answer why anybody does word problems and eventually quits. This starts a revolution in the school were all students question everything about the existence of school (you can watch the full episode here... after you finish your work of course).

The point being this: “why” statements are very convincing in advertising. It gives you, the copywriter, the opportunity to present an argument. So, for this task, I want you to write, using 80-100 words, why somebody should buy your car? Yes, quite literally, your car. If you don’t own a car, sell your friend’s car. Or your parent’s car. What makes your car unique? Is it because of a specific feature? Low mileage? Because it was once yours? Because it road tripped to Coachella one time? Give a try at a why.
