Classifieds Ad Rant
 
When I was looking to purchase a corvette, I noticed that a lot of the classified ads would list the 'vettes as a coupe.

By definition, a coupe is any 2-door car. Therefore, aren't ALL corvettes a coupe.


Which brings me to my point ...

I see that a lot of the ads for TJs say "convertible".
Since ALL TJs can have a hard top, soft top, bikini top, etc., aren't ALL TJs considered a convertible? :rolleyes:

Or maybe it's just the seller trying to list everything possible about his/her vehicle, to better sell it. (If only the seller knew that the Jeep pretty much sells itself.)

Ok, so how about the TJs?
I never saw one that had a roof that couldn't come off.

This. I always felt like they listed convertibles so if someone were looking for one, they might run across the Jeep and think about buying one, even though they weren't thinking of a Jeep when they wanted a convertible.

we know that but maybe someone that knows nothing about jeeps doesn't..when you are trying to sell something you do whatever you think might catch someones attention

That makes sense.
I didn't think about it that way.

I'm usually glad to see the particular descriptive style in a vehicle advert, it let's me know how much knowledge the seller has about what they are selling, if they are being pedantic or if they are assuming facts. This will often translate in to a stronger position to negotiate from. Also geography will play a large role in someones description, from saloons to sedans and convertibles to cabriolets, estates and wagons and roadsters to coupes.

It is also all about the search engine. You search for generic convertible and convertible is in the listing for the jeep it pops up. You don't have it listed as a convertible no view of your listing.

Off-topic, but I love seeing ads for drum sets where the person refers to skins instead of heads. It usually means the person knows little about drums (good deal) or they have really old drums in original condition ( good deal.)

Or it's the Dad trying to sell the kit he regretfully bought for his kid.
