Keep the forsale ads coming guys!
As long as they are VW's or diesels. For the very very few ads I've seen I
don't know why it would be troublesome to you!
You have a finger. You have a delete key. The guy puts "for sale" in the
title. It's a no-brainer !!
If you read it, let's face it---it's your own fault.

I'd love to find a cheap diesel caddy in the Maritimes. (can't afford one
right now, but someday.)

Back to my 88 Jetta !
