Check out this '49 foor door with the top removed.
Spell check and a grammer lesson might help. But then again maybe not.

Well, despite what the seller says, it may have been a sedan once but it is definitely a convertible now!

Oh, isn't this usually true? "once the car restore, the car will look great." Of course in this case restoration would have to include a steel top!

Sometimes reading ebay is like watching the comedy channel.

Not to be picky, but that's like the frying pan calling the kettle black. I see so much bad grammar and spelling here (especially the use of its and it's) there's no point in bringing it up when it's on eBay. I don't understand why someone wanting to sell something would want to expose his ignorance, but maybe he's just ignorant of the image it presents, too. That would make sense.

I suspect that in this case English is not his native language.

My take on poor grammer is that some people use it on purpose to make themselves look uneducated and easy to take advantage of. They are actually "no Dummy"

Must be a slow Stude day. We've got 2 threads going on spelling and grammar errors.

Some of the fellow club members I know with the most knowledge about Studebakers and the nicest cars, would have trouble meeting the writing standards expressed here...not to mention the many Forum members who are a part of this group who are from countries where English is not the first language.

Sounds to me like what is being said is if your grammar and spelling are not up to my standards, don't post here...no matter how interesting your posts might be, how much knowledge you could share with us, or how much help you need to get your Stude on the road. We'll laugh at you.

Is that really what we want to be known for?

Darn it Dick. You're right. I'm gonna think before I post another stupid post like I just did. The smartest,[and probably RICHEST]guy I've ever known in my life, has barely a grade school education,can't spell worth a damn,handwriting looks like a kindergartners,-you get the pic.
Point is,I'd never make fun of HIM,I love the guy like a father.
Blame it on a slow day in Studebakerdom. {SORRY!]
Think twice before you hit 'submit reply' guys!!!

I won the 6th grade spelling bee, and I'm generally known as a really good speller now. But, I still get confused using its and it's. And, as someone pointed out, poor spelling is not necessarily an indication of someone's intelligence quotient. My boss is a civil engineer, but he doesn't spell or write well at all. Does it pain me sometimes to read a post that is written/spelled so badly that it defies belief? Yes, indeed, but that doesn't mean that the poster doesn't have something interesting to say or some interesting knowledge to impart. And, I've noticed that its actually much easier to misspell something using a word processor than it is to write by hand. So, I don't think we should get on folks too hard for occasional spelling mishaps.

Its and it's is really easy. "It's" is a contraction for "it is". If you replace the "it's" with "it is" in your sentence and it doesn't make sense, you have the wrong form.

Scott,

That works only if you have an understanding of the principles of grammar. With eubonics and the other bastardizations of the language too few people know what is really correct.
