"I did want to let everyone know that I was really impressed by the number of serious inquiries about the car we received from running an ad with you.  If you ever need someone to recommend the effectiveness of advertising on your site and newsletter, I would be glad to tell them how easy and effective it was. - Nell Benjamin"

"The 1964 MGB I had advertised on your site has been sold. I received over 10 responses to the ad and the purchaser was one of them. Your site provided great exposure and serious buyers, thanks! Bill Kuehrmann, St. Louis, MO"

WARNING: CAR SALES SCAM. The check the “buyer” sends you is a fake. If you deposit it into your account and then obtain a Cashiers Check for the difference and send it to the accomplice, it will be cashed before the fake check you deposited is returned to your bank and charged back to your account. You will be ripped off for the amount of the Cashiers Check that you sent. You might want to warn the members in the magazine.
