    Err... Does that price include delivery? I'm in Newcastle, NSW
    _Australia_. This is a _worldwide_ group! Mentoning where the
    car is would have been good.

    I'm guessing that this car is actually located somewhere in the
    USA based upon the odometer reading being quoted in miles and
    the wierd telephone number. I don't have a decimal point on any
    of my telephones!

    Like the other recent for sale ad, this one has a phone number
    in it that makes it appear likely that the poster won't even
    read any of the responses in this group. The biggest difference
    with this one is the "or e-mail", which suggests a _slight_
    possibility that they might read responses...

    Like the previous post, this one appears to have a ridiculous
    price... A _1978_ 262C for US$7K ?!?

    You should post your ad to a forsale newsgroup. This is not an
    appropriate place for it. Good luck with the sale though!

    Don't really mean to be a downer but good luck, There was a Volvo dealer up
    north in West LA that had one with 46 miles on it and couldn't sell it for
    $7000, it had been on the showroom floor since new. Sadly the PRV engine in
    those have seemed to kill any collector value.

    Does any advertised price ever include delivery? Most car ads around here
    will come with disclaimers indicating that the price excludes (among other
    things) delivery charges.
    Quite perceptive. It's very trivial to determine where in the USA a phone
    number was assigned. In this case it's from Rhode Island. RI is a pretty
    small state, about the size of the county I live in, so I'd even venture
    to guess that the most interested people would recognize the phone number
    as local.

    Yes, I agree for most usenet posts.. ignoring the followups is a bad idea.
    However, for an ad (especially one where contact info was provided) I
    don't think this is true. Do you really want to sift through a bunch of
    posts relating to an ad for a car you're probably not interested in?

    No telephones have a decimal point, it's just commonly used instead of a
    dash, it's actually more of a european thing than US.

    In Europe we donnot use dots between numbers. "- " 's between area codes.

    Err... I was being facetious... It was more a comment on the style of
    writing a phone number with dots in it than anything else.
