I like the "rare", often seen on eBay even if the item is as common as dirt, The "ran when parked" is another one that makes me laugh.

Couple of the most mis-used words I have seen, and real meaning:

Heavy duty = what salvage yards are paying for scrap metal.

High performance = high cost to keep it running.

“No lowball offers, I know what I got” — the wife said I have to sell it but I don’t want to so that’s why there’s an insane price on it

I dont really even look at craigslist up here....2 out of 3 ads are posted by a moron.

Id say at least half the car/truck ads posted by owner dont have a title. Not to mention the used car debacle that is right now...everyone thinks their rusted out POS with 200k on it is worth ⅔ new price. Wifes 05 silverado with 177k goes for almost 15k up here depending on options.

I dont blame folks for trying to get every penny for their junk but lets try to be at least a little realistic...

I recently gave away a ¾ton 4x4 dodge less the engine and tranny to a kid i know locally and he was ecstatic...said he figured id want at least a little for it. I told him getting it out of my way is enough for me...i got what i wanted out of it. Gave him the title to it too!

A local car dealer that went by the name weird Wally had bill boards around town . 
one was, 

“ I bought my work car from weird Walleys and now I am working on it”

 

1967 Ford mustang, “RUST FREE”

”Buy it and get the rust for free”

My friend buys and sells a few cars every year and when people ask him if there is a warranty, he tells them. Yep, a tail light warranty. When the tail lights are out of sight, it's out of warranty.

Reminds me of the old 30-30 warranty. 30 feet or 30 seconds whichever comes first.

Classic Kiwi Humour. Shame he's gone to the happy hunting ground. His sense of humour was unique
