Vehicle Ads (Caution not rated PG)

Post by rpm750 on Fri Sep 17, 2010 11:45 am

You know if I'm selling my really nice decked out Bus or Bug and I'm asking more than 10k for it don't you think I would market the forker a bit better than one freaking picture on the Samba. What the hell is up with this crap. Really I look on the samba and craig's daily only to find a dumb ass selling a '50 Split or something unique that they want 25k for and no photos or description to support that price. High quality cars and potential buyers will demand more than one freaking pic, to start with, and that will prove out a price like 10k and up. Come on are you fo real, get with the damn program! Oh yeah and these ijits that put a pic in there that is turned sideways, someone needs to put their hand up side yo face sideways, get with the damn program people. You're killin me! You know what if you see an ad like that with that kind of price the vehicle is most likely not worth the asking price, just my .02 worth!

Oh and one other thing, Tell us what freaking year your vehicle is and stop making us guess!

Here's a prime example.........

The ad has two pictures and no damn description to speak of.
GET.......WITH.......THE.......P R O G R A M!!!!

This is probably the one that irks me the most. I'm decent with figuring out the years of pre 67 beetles from a picture, but I look at ghias quite often, and don't know the year differences, so it's incredibly annoying when they don't have the year. That's a really big piece of information, how could you just leave that off!

And here's another prime example, even though it's only $1500, but jeez, couldn't you at least put a picture and maybe tell what year range???? Mad Mad Mad Razz

Price: Ask!

This one really really drives me nuts, even more so than not stating the year.
This guy is the worst about it, but I've seen others do it to.

Or people who say volkswagon bettle instead of volkswaGEN bEETle. I mean if you own one, you should know enough about it to spell the name?

example. this convertible super bettle

some of the ads posted here at this site is just as bad. (sorry folks!) but for someone who is not a regular or not as educated with all the misc parts, it's hard to guess what they look like without descriptions or a picture. Rolling Eyes

"Bettle" is classic. I could see it a million times and it would still crack me up. If I ever get another bug, I'll probably get one of those vanity plates that says "Bettle"
