Oh, don’t get me wrong. I’m not knocking the enterprise that goes into spotting where a bit of value can be added with some effort. There’s plenty of room for flipping for profit in this world.
I like a well set out and informative listing as much as the next person but a good 50% of that listing is just flim flam.
In the good old days of printed weekly sales rags when you generally paid per word, there was beauty in economy. In that instance I doubt very much whether The Doctor, as the seller, would have proceeded to give you chapter and verse model history when you called to ask if the car is still available.
I question the veracity of such detailed history in the listing of a 40-plus year old car that has passed through a number of hands. I simply don’t buy it. Literally and metaphorically. You’ve called out the upholstery as an error. What else could there be?
Maybe I’m just in a bad mood today, although I’ll just about forgive The Doctor for incorrect use of apostrophes throughout the listing and for incorrect use of “warrantee”.
eta - apologies. This post is more suited to the grumpy thread. It adds no value to this one. Just needed to vent.
