Recently they bought a new minivan, fully loaded with all the options, to make their trips more enjoyable. When they first came to visit, they could- n't wait to show off all the fea- tures. I sat in the driver's seat to check it out. "This car has everything," I said looking at all the but- tons. "Automatic door locks, automatic windows…" "And if I get lost," my friend interrupted. "My wife automatically yells at me." (Thanks to Sawyer N.) Reader Humor Laughs For Sale Duane "Cash" Holze & Todd "Carry" Holze www.ClassifiedGuys.com Fast Facts Dear Classified Guys, I consider myself a pretty sharp guy. When I wanted to sell my car, I was smart enough to clean it up before the sale. Besides a quick car wash, I spent a few hours vacuuming and cleaning the inside and out. I even went an extra step and hired some- one to steam clean the engine. It made the car look like new. Pretty good, considering it was 8 years old. When the one and only guy who answered my ad came to look at my car, I thought it was sold. He even comment- ed on how clean it was. Then came the shocker. He told me he wouldn't make an offer because it was TOO clean! What was he thinking? Can a car be too clean or is this guy just plain crazy? • • • Cash: I'll bet the car didn't shine like that during the eight years you owned it. Carry: We often hear about sellers who clean their car just before they try to sell it. However during the time they owned it, it was full of empty cof- fee cups and fast food wrappers. Cash: Your effort to clean the car before resale was a good deci- sion. A clean car will typically appeal to more buyers. However, steam cleaning the engine may have been too much. Carry: On an eight-year-old vehicle, a perfectly clean engine raises concerns that a seller is try- ing to hide something. Most peo- ple would expect to see some grease and grime under the hood. In fact, that's probably what your buyer was looking for. Cash: Since you cleaned the engine, there was no way for him to tell if there were any oil leaks or signs of a problem around the engine. Although many people barely know how to open the hood, others like to see the engine in its present condition. Carry: However, I wouldn't worry. Your buyer may be the minority. Many people would love to have a good running car that has been cleaned inside and out. Cash: A concern, though, is why only one person responded to your ad. It's possible that your asking price for the car was too high. Although the car may look like new, it's still eight years old and should be priced accordingly. Carry: If you do that, I'm sure you'll have no trouble finding an interested party. After all, we all need a clean car to fill with our empty coffee cups. Ask the Guys This is a very personal automotive ad ©The Classified Guys ® 06/03/12 Riding Dirty With the amount of road dust that accumulates, it's likely that we have all been guilty of hav- ing a dirty car. But just how dusty is your car? An International Car Wash Association survey found that nearly 32 million car owners had "Wash Me" scribbled on their car at least once. Those same people seem to be spreading the pattern. Nearly 25% admit to writing the message on someone else's car as well. Soaking Wet We all make mistakes, even in the car wash. According to a recent survey of car wash cus- tomers, 11% didn't put their car into neutral and 9% missed the track with their car tires. The more damaging mistakes includ- ed 29% who admitted to leaving their antenna up, 9% not closing the window, 5% not closing the door and 2% not shutting their sunroof. The most embarrass- ing, however, are the 2% (about 4 million car owners) who pur- posely open the window won- dering what would happen! • Do you have a question or funny story about the classifieds?
