Most stupid message while flogging a shiter

This does seem to have turned into the weekly everyone else is idiots thread.  Why not look underneath a £200 car?  I wish I had when I bought a mk2 Espace for £205 in the early days of eBay motors as I'd have seen all the yellow chalk and disputed the sellers tale that he hadn't had time to take it for a test.  If the second of Billys photos is an enlargement of the first I might not have spotted the missing plug lead and indeed wondered if it ran (although I'm guessing you said it didn't in the description).  I appreciate that "500 2nite" messages are irritating but perhaps as a nation we need to start accepting descriptions with "no offers" without grumbling?

Fair point, Rich. He did know it wasn't running, but then again everyone else must have read it wasn't registered but it hasn't stop myriad questions about a number plate and a log book!

Can it be ridden back to Runcorn?

I suspect that anyone from Runcorn, will be saying "What's your address" and "when will you out" 

And arranging to come and "bye" it  whilst you are out. 

(No offence to anyone from Runcorn, but I worked in a factory there for 7 years and have met the thieves from The Park Gate Estate that got Liverpool it's reputation)

This was amusing, a member of this very forum giving me grief for selling the niva without "doing anything to it" for more money without realising he was actually speaking with me on Facebook...

I also had another couple of forum members give me grief about it.

Brilliant! I had that on retro rides years ago, I wanted to buy a bmw e28 and someone started messaging me explaining  how the vendor bought it for x, y months ago- I wasn’t exactly sure what was going on or what to say, so just said thanks. It didn’t change my interest in the car. It felt like it was considered a crime to ask anything other than what it was bought for.

And that’s before we’ve got to the debacle of the Cortina!

Fair enough on a £200 car poke your head underneath but bloody hell it doesn’t need an inspection of every square inch of the floor. There’s not a lot you can’t find simply sticking your head under the car for 30 seconds.

This is the message i received on Saturday, from the lad that bought the golf I had for sale just before Christmas.

Hi Leslie, I sent the logbook for the Golf off to the DVLA on the 28th December.
As the DVLA are on furlough and not all working it could take a few weeks for it to turn up.

I wonder, has the internet age made it a lot worse or was it this bad in its own way, if this was for instance 1984 through the medium of exchange and mart or whatever.
