Or, please add a filter much like the catagories. It can show all ads EXCEPT cars & trucks.
There are just WAY too many dealers and their salesmen posing as a private party.🤬

Thanks H2ojet, that would sure help me alot. I'd like to purchase a car from a provide owner. WithThe car dealers, they are nice enough to let you pay hundreds of dollars in taxes, and that price they come up with for the cars they but at auction how nice. Just saying.

Agreed. Private owners can give you history. Did you change transmission fluid. When was timing belt replaced. Owners can prove it, while dealers have no way to answer it

It's pretty easy to spot the dealers though. If you will notice in the plcture, the dealers car will have the price of the car in large numbers on the windshield and you can tell a lot from what's in the background. (lots of cars parked in rows in a parking lot) Just FYI. It's how I weed most of them out. Hope this helps.
