This guy took a picture with his digital camera and put it on the computer. He then took a digital picture of the picture off his computer screen, loaded that into his computer and uploaded that one to ebay.:)

Looks pretty clear considering the process!

I still can't get how somebody trying to sell a car that expensive can't be bothered to do a decent set of pictures[|)] I know he said he'd add some later (and did explain why he did all the maneuvering for this pic), but why list it till they're ready- on a Tuesday?? If it was Thursday and he wanted a 10-day listing, maybe... but even still...

Hopefully more are forthcoming- I'd like to see the car[8D]

BTW- any Wagonaire update?[:p]

He says...

"I took a picture of my other computer screen for this shot. The computer crashed and I can't get the pictures off it."

...but that doesn't make any sense. [?]

He could have used the same pics/ad from when it was on Ebay in 2007.

Look up R-1157 here...

Jack, just trying to figure out the why he took a picture off his screen, when it was already on his hard drive.

Bob, I don't know which is cooler, the fact that you saved that listing, or that you have it on the 'net for everyone to check out! Amazing.

For the newest addition, how did you save the listing to your site?

Given the message in the lower right of his screen shot, I don't think I'll be requesting that he email me the additional pics. For those who didn't go look, it is a message from his virus protection saying his computer is infected.

The computer picture that was posted looks like a promo shot that I've seen before. It looks like one of the Avanti brochure pix. Can anyone confirm?

It's one of several similar ones from his August 07 eBay listing, seen on Bob's site referenced above.
