According to a few I fit the description, so I’d better not bid or kick its tyres. Lets get back to what I was doing. :lol:

Even if I was in the market for another car I would never consider doing business with a stroppy character like this. What do they think they achieve with such ads?

These types expect anyone who calls, to buy. If not they're time wasters. I wouldn't entertain responding to an advert using that expression. As to the other exclusions, it gives a good insight as to what sort of guy he is!

Had a look at his previous sale items. Had a Vauxhall Vivaro listed, was a bit more polite on that listing stating “No Muppets or time wasters”.

Ads like that make me be a w.... r! I just made an offer.... £7.50. I really hope I don't win.

He’s now ammended his ad with fewer insults. Still not exactly welcoming though.

Probably dawned on him that you don't sell cars with the type of description he originally used. :roll: The time waster bit will put many off though, it's a form of intimidation.

Since the relisting, you should be ok. Now you only need to be a non tyre kicker and/or a non time waster, other characteristics appear to be tolerated :roll:

I’d be tempted to go round there just to kick the tyres and wind him up :)

Would confuse the poor chap if you were a wine tasting time waster.

Bit of a home-made hybrid. Glove-box lids with pushbutton locks...??? One each of an LHD and an RHD pre-1954 car...? Van or pickup bonnet...possibly later (not split-screen) type...? Later (not split-screen) rear wings and tail lamp chrome plinth. Front screen pillars don't look right. Split-screen looks a bit odd too. Bulkhead/dash top been hacked around perhaps to match bonnet....?

Make up a well known sentence using the words 'touch' and 'bargepole'..... :lol:

That's what I thought. I wonder what it's registered as? Insurance nightmare in case of a claim.

It’s the kind of car Victor Frankenstein might have built from spare parts.

The concern I have is the advertised description.

Other than that if you have the parts lying around, why not?
