What is a VL?

 

By using acronyms you are severally limiting the base of people who might be interested. In particular older guys.

 

This is not a text message limited to 160 characters.

Describe in as much detail as possible what your after you will have a not more success.

Hi there Chris! A VL is a model of Holden commodore launched in 1986. While it maintained its popularity over the years, it's true beauty was only discovered over the course of the last 8 years or so when it began being used as currency by trading them for other cars. Much like a rusty bit coin of its day. Such trades were usually offered along with any other crap the person had hoarded at the time, usually a fish tank. If you have tried to sell anything car related in the last 8 years, particularly on car based forums, you would know what I'm talking about. Hence the long running joke of a VL and fishtank.

 

In essence I do not want to trade for a VL and fish tank. It was a joke. Not aimed at an age demographic, but more so a demographic of car enthusiasts. Apologies for any confusion.

No offence taken.

 

I realise now your ad was somewhat tongue in cheek, and non of this is directed at you.  I am hoping others read it.

 

I was really just trying to raise a point that if you want the most people to see and understand any ad then one should be as detailed and clear as possible.

 

E.G. a friend of mine is wreaking his starlet and has all bits for sale. people are messaging him without describing what they want. 

We both look at the messages and go WTF does he want. One guy asked for a "hub". Hubs usually come in pairs. does he want front or rear. one can make assumptions but you shouldn't need too.

 

If someone wants something in the most quick and efficient way, then say exactly what you want or in this day and age send a photo.  This is actually one of the easiest forums I have ever been on to send a photo.  

 

All good.

 

Chris
