Criticism of your post has nothing to do with anyone being a grammar queen or a nitpicker.

If you want to be understood, use the conventions of the English language, such as punctuation, capitalizing the first word of a sentence, and the like. That's why they exist. To ensure accurate communication. And if that's too much work for you, don't be surprised that you get ribbed about it.

And besides, if someone can't be bothered to hit the button with the "." on it, what kind of car are they likely to be selling?

Actually, I think it is just a joke, trying to see what reaction he might get by writing something like that. He's just pulling our chains, and the car is probably ok.

Moderator chiming in, asking all to concentrate on the car, if possible, and not the personalities and discussions. This feels like a smoldering fire that could flare up in a bad way. Contact the seller directly if you want more info, etc., please don't slag or speculate here.

Andrew, mod.

Well, yes, you are correct, except it was such a surprise to see something written like that.

Not used to that. Is it the new way for some to write (I assume he is not a foreigner), makes one wonder, like seeing "text speak" in a resume, a no go?

Have removed my derisive comments, although I was just trying to encourage him to make his sales pitch more appealing to more potential customers.

alfetta

you have a nice car there but the rust is a bit scarey. what are the last two photos showing? are they of the windshield or the rear hatch? and if of the rear hatch is the rot confined to the hatch or are we looking at the rear structural post? how is the engine compartment? does it have the usual rot at the shock towers? 76 is the best year in my opinion.
