Parking Lot Buddhism?

Seen in a parking lot: "For sale, $3500 obo. 69,000 miles" Note the broken window panel (duct tape window covering adds extra value?) and the, well, is that a bullet hole?, next to the driver door handle.

Parking Lot Buddha - Noble Truth Number 2: The origin of suffering is attachment. It would seem that the owner of this car has some attachment to it (not to mention a possible misperception concerning value). He must be suffering greatly to have such attachments. Of course, one could argue that attachment is denied by selling the car, but the price-for-condition at least suggests some emotional commitment to the auto. What do you think?
