  4. I hate the use of LOL,,,What are we fricken 15 years old?

    All they write is lol,wtf, and omg!
    I did text a lot just 10 years ago,about 9,000 text a month and I always wrote complete
    words and sentences.
    I never used the lol shit.

    "Shouldn't need much"

    But it's all a big mystery isn't it? Good thing the seller is psychic or else I might have thought it would take lot more to fix...

    One I keep seeing lately is "Has new tires" and when I go look the tires are rotten from sitting... sure, new, what decade were they new in?

    I hate when people call a sedan a hard top.
  9. I hate when someone is selling a vehicle they had for some time and they write that the engine condition is unknown, they never tried it. Really? I don't know of one that I didn't try the engine within an hour of owning it. Do you really want to sell it? Now would be a good time to put your paws on it and give it a try. Takes a second. Same with electrical. I see it all the time. "Don't know if it works, never plugged it in." Well, plug it in for a second and see if anything happens. Arrrggggg. :confused:

    Now sure but I think a 301 was a 283 built with a 327 crank-
  12. I well understand that but why be sneakey and vague? Unless its being sold sight unseen and shipped its not like a buyer won't figure that out in seconds. I just wish people would stop wasting others time like that. I always tell people exactly what they are getting. Its more work to be dishonest than honest.
  13. I hate the saying "all the hard works done for you". Is it really? Anyone can tear a car all the way down, mix everything together into unlabeled box's, fix the rust, and shoot the car in primer.

    They should tell the truth it's not "all the hard works done for you" it's " I took my car apart did the body work, took the drive line out, and have no fucking clue how to put it back together so I need to sell it now".

    Some old electrical stuff you don't want to plug in to see if it works -- an old tube radio, for example. If the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply are dried out you can damage the set.
    Best to reform or replace the caps first. If you don't know how to do that, best to do nothing, i.e. don't plug it in.

  18. So do you find me attractive? or do you like my style?:confused::eek:
  19. err, that would be style...:)

    The fact you capitalize your I's puts you above about 90 percent of the younger generations "riten skillz"!:D

    Complete sentences? Inconceivable!:cool:
  20. O man! You are making me blush!
    I did try to pay attention in school.
    I think clear communication is very important and I cannot imagine the resumes these kids are throwing out,out there.
    Unless they have the skills of some of you on this site,what will be of them?

    No kidding. Its a HUGE red flag when people are also trading for "other projects".
    That to me tells me about everything I need to know about the car/truck in question.
