    Moderators, can we create new forum called "E39 worst possible ad"? It’s PARKED above

    Maybe I'm crazy (I am to some extent) but I consider some cars deserving better fate then some people.

    Loved the signs of a well cared for vehicle. Broken interior rearview mirror, cleaned carpet mats, highly detailed interior and a well groomed owner!

    Spare parts on the back seat always inspire confidence in buyers.
    At least this semi-literate is smart enough to recognize he's in way over his head with this car. I'd wager he hasn't had it for long and it remains a salvageable case.
    $22k and the desperate tone don't jibe but the market will educate him soon enough.
    FWIW There are way worse ads and sellers out there

    Some really impressive incoherent gibberish in that ad. I hope someone will save that car from him before he tries to fix something on it.

    Yeah, there are worse ads and this E39 might be saved from the doom.
    The problem with this one and ones like it, there is no way to tell the damage done already: Not changing oil on time or with wrong viscosity chain store special, redlining dead cold engine and thinking "Hmm, what are those red indicators on rpm gauge etc...
    Oh well, we can't save them all.

    Man I don't know it might be ok then again who knows maybe this guy really messed it up and the prior owner may have not been too sharp either but it does say it has some Dina upgrades so that's a plus but who knows if the short shifter was installed right this guy Walker may not know what he's doing, at least some filters were replaced but sounds like the interior might be in bad shape from the sun but the belts were replaced so that's good but I don't know if I want to publicly throw a price that just sounds sketchy I don't know I think I'll pass

    Z, let me think about it.
    I was thinking about starting a poll to see what everyone thought but canít seem to find where to start it.
    I didnít look too hard, been pretty busy in the garage for the last week.

    Jim, no biggie, it might be a good entertainment but then it might also get out of hand...

    I know what to do if things get out of hand.
    Where the heck do you start a poll, or can’t one be started in a thread that has already been started?

    It might be fun. Like a people of Walmart thread. Do it like the old Ďunofficial touringí thread, or what did you do to your e39 thread.

    OK, I pulled myself out of the garage and looked into the poll. It canít be started on an active thread, has to be a new thread.
    Iíll start one and then see if I can move all of these posts into the new thread.

    CPHES, I canít believe some of those people of Walmart actually go to the store dressed (if thatís what you want to call it) like that.

    Should we have a section to post idiot For Sale ads youíve seen?

    This is just for ads you’ve seen on the internet that are a few cards short of a full deck.
    No posting your actual car or parts here, those will get the axe if you try.

    Lol, Saw that before, still laughing now. Love how the moron used chicken screen to cover the underbody where you can still see the holes for the old bumper shocks. I would put two water canons filled with old motor oil in there, pointed backwards, slightly up, hook up two good strong pumps and run a switch to the center console area.
