Does anyone else ever get the urge to grab saturdays or sundays paper and ring everyone with unrealistic prices on their cars and tell them they're dreaming. I can only think of one at the moment but I am sure you have all seen them. In last weeks sunday paper their was an ad for an ED XR8 Sprinter. It was advertised as a Sprinter i presume it meant Sprint. It was supposedly once owned by a guy from tickford. I can't recall his name but it wasn't anyone i recognised not that i'm the guru of tickford employees. That brings me to another point short of Marsden,Polites,Flint Dick Johnson and guys like that does the previous owner mean anything. I mean the guy mentioned in this ad could be the guy who cleans the office dunnies. Any way the guy wanted $32 000 for the car. Isn't it amazing how people value their own things.

Yeah I saw that add, the first thing that worried me was that he couldn't even get the Sprint part right.

Made me start thinkin he has just got one of those cheapo XR bodykits with the Sprint signage down the side and all of a sudden thinks that makes it qualify as a sprint :crazy1:

Larko, you are spot on, IMO a sprint cant be worth worth more than 20k, as for the sprinter advertised in the Sunday Times? What the hell is the sprinter??? 32k ring him and quote" tell him is dreamin"

Do you know what really makes me laugh?

Seeing people asking $30 000 or more for a ricer number plate!

I don't know about you but I can not see the justification.
