    Default 1986 Mercury Grand Marquis Tudor in Waco, TX - $1400

    A little rough and missing the driver's door panel. Might be a good deal other than that.

    Does the seller realize that door panel is made of 99.99% unobtainium? Does appear to have potential though.

    Someone’s trash is someone else’s treasure. In this case the buyer of this car would be the treasure seeker. Unless they demo it or do a Mod Box V2.0.

    Me too. "Break" and "work" do not belong in the same sentence, talk about an oxymoron!

    I was on my break at work last night, chugging fake gatorade to keep from dying from the heat... I dunno, seems like they kind of do belong in the same sentence sometimes?

    When you're on break, you're not working. Chugging Gatorade isn't working.

    It makes even less sense when they have "Need to sale" and "For sell" in the same ad.

    Oh lol, I like that one too. Need to sale. God.. It's even worse when they're selling something you're interested in buying.

    In a similar vein...and this one I know is used on the forum sometimes...

    Leaving out "to be" and not changing the verb properly. As in, the A/C needs charged (instead of charging). The car needs washed (instead of washing). The garage needs tidied (instead of tidying). Ditto when referring to the action in the past tense.

    Then there's the misuse of "anymore" in a positive/affirmative context which is hard to describe but increasingly common.

    These appear to be common Midwesternisms...I certainly hear a lot of them in Detroit.

    I firmly believe that if you are trying to sell anything within an ad/internet forum etc.. that you should try real damn hard to make everything clear as possible and NOT give potential buyers any reasons to think negatively of you. Your ad is the ONLY thing potential buyers know of you at this point and if you make really blatant errors within your ad they may not even bother contacting you.

    I agree, but my experience is that the less I put in my ad, the more interest I get. I'm torn when it comes to selling stuff. Maybe if the price point of what I was selling was higher? But it always seems I sell stuff for sub $2k and thus the people who call don't/can't read all that well and what little interest I do get, they often ask questions already answered by the ad. Me: "Vehicle runs & drives" (posted at top of ad) Them when they call: "Does it run?"

    Yes, it runs like a 'raped ape.' "Does it drive?" Only as well as you drive it.* *May contain the glue-sniffing faeries from Tommy Boy that knock up your daughter.

    I put the price high enough to scare off the bargain hunters, price grinders, the uneducated, homeless, demo derby types and people who want parts for their cars. If someone who appreciates the car or item knows what it is and it's worth, we can have an intelligent conversation. I might cut a good deal or I might tell them not to waste my time. In other words, I know what the item is worth to me, what the market is, my need to move it and if it will go to a good home.
    I just sold my pool table a couple of days ago. Priced not cheap but right. Guy bought it for his son's birthday. Son helped Dad load it thinking he was helping pick up a washing machine. When he saw it was a pool table, the joy was incredible.
    My '75 Ford is up for sale. It has been up for sale for awhile. When I sell it, I am sure it will go to someone who appreciates that car. Price is high enough to scare away the above mentioned people. A decent deal for the serious. If someone tries to grind me down on the price, sure I will come down but they will not get the nos Ford parts worth $$$ . Chances are it will sell on Ebay.

    How long does it take you to sell stuff, especially your cars? When I/we put something up for sale, we want it gone within a month..

    Guy that bought the Mark VII was practically a hobo. STANK of cigarettes, the test drive was borderline unbearable but luckily it was for 3 minutes. This was right when Alex was telling me to bump the price up to $1,400 or so, forgot to do that.

    Typically takes me at least 2-3 months if not 2 years to sell stuff.
