Second-hand 1999 Barina becomes fundraising vehicle

How much would you pay for a second-hand 1999 Barina featuring a cassette player and matching seats, if it was for a good cause?

When David Johns decided to create an over-the-top online campaign in a bid to sell his second-hand car, he never expected the campaign would go viral, generating over 600,000 YouTube views and over 500,000 tweets.

With the campaign taking off in the first few days, David has decided to take his car sale to the next level by donating the proceeds to Cancer Council Australia.

David, who lost his dad to cancer 12 years ago, is optimistic that the car's humble features could result in a big donation to Cancer Council Australia.

Who wouldn't bid for a 15-year-old classic Aussie car with this sales pitch: "This is Driving Redefined, with 20th Century Technology - FM/AM Radio, Auto-stop Cassette Player, Front/rear screen wiper and internal fan. Don't just make history, drive it."

To find out more about Australia's most glorified second-hand car and how you can make an offer, head to The auction closes on 25 July.
