I was browsing the 2-Big Bronco website a few minutes ago and thought of the Race-Dezert classifieds.... :)

LOOKS LIKE NEW… just don't try to drive it anywhere.
ALL ORIGINAL… I never had anything fixed, adjusted, or replaced.
LOADED WITH OPTIONS… each one more troublesome than the last.
NEVER SMOKED IN… unfortunately, that's the best thing I can say about it.
PROJECT CAR… I can't figure out how to finish it and I doubt you will either.
LOTS OF POTENTIAL… to drive you insane.

ENGINE QUIET... uses 90-weight oil
PARTS CAR... beyond repair.
ROUGH CONDITION… too bad to lie about.

OLDER RESTORATION... first owner washed it.
GOOD INVESTMENT... can't be worth much less.
NO TIME TO RESTORE IT... can't obtain parts.

ENGINE BLUEPRINTED… I don't know what it means either.
EXCELLENT GAS MILEAGE… It's slow.
LOW MILES… the odometer was turned back.

SURE TO APPRECIATE… that's why I'm selling it.
. . .OR BEST OFFER… I'm guessing here.
FASTER THAN A 'VETTE… A Chevette.
OTHER INTERESTS CONFLICT... spouse's ultimatum: "Either that #[email protected]&## thing goes or I do!"

I wonder if "BUILT DISCO" needs a translation?
