Would You Buy A Used War From This Man? A Collection of Political Humor From National Lampoon, was a 1972 American humor book, a paperback anthology of pieces of political humor from National Lampoon magazine.

The "This Man" in the title was Richard Nixon, who was the President of the United States from 1969–1974, and the "War" in the title was the Vietnam War, which lasted from 1955 to 1975. The title was a variant of the American saying, "Would you buy a used car from this man?" meaning that the person was not someone you could trust, and that was obvious from the person's face.

The cartoonist Ed Sorel drew the cover illustration, which shows Nixon as a used car salesman leaning on a pile of blood-stained army uniforms, with a sign in the background with lettering that says "TRICKY DICKY" and "USED CARNAGE". The book was published by Warner-Paperback Library.
