How To Interpret Antique Car Ads

IF IT SAYS:

IT REALLY MEANS:

Rare model

Nobody liked them when new, either

Older restoration

Can't tell it's been restored

Needs engine work

It’s been siezed for 30 years

Uses no oil

Just leaks it out

No rust

Body and fenders missing

Rough

It's too bad to lie about

One owner

Never been able to sell

No time to complete

Can't find parts anywhere

Needs interior

Seats are gone

Rebuilt engine

Has new spark plugs

May run

But never has

Low mileage

Third time around

29 coats of hand-rubbed paint

Needed that much to cover the rust

Clean

It sat in the rain yesterday

Always driven slowly

About what I expect to get

Prize winner

Hard Luck Trophy 3 times in a row

Stored 25 years

Under a tree

Real show stopper

Orange with purple fenders

Easy restoration

Parts will come off in your hands

Ready to show

Just washed it

Top is good

Only leaks when it rains

Good investment

Can't depreciate any more
