Default Really DUMB statements in car ads.

We all gripe about some of the dumb things guys state in car ads or auctions. Some of the old stand-bys:

"Ran when parked." Don't know that it matters if it was parked 30+ years ago.

"I know what I got." Yeah, you just don't know what its worth.

Anyway, getting a bit bored today. Have been going 100 mph for way too long, so taking a lazy weekend. Ran across an ad with a really dumb statement and thought I would post here; I am sure you have seen something similar. Could be fun. Could suck.

Scratching my head after reading this one. Made me laugh.

"It runs well and is an excellent buy. (The key was put in the starter wrong and will not start) Will only need a new starter."

“All the hard work has already been done” (refer to shell bolted to rotisserie, still needing floors and quarters).

“$100k car when finished”

“Great investment”

“Values are going nowhere but up”

I always referred to my 70 RS/Z28 as a unrestored Survivor with 1 repaint in early 80's, Car is a 34,000 mile car with maybe 90% 0f its OEM born with assembly line parts still intact. Exaust, Battery, Shocks, Belts and Hoses only have all been replaced over the years. So its sounds like you guys would consider this a very nice Original ,unrestored car and technically not a "Survivor" ??your thoughts ? thanks
