    I'd like to email this bunghole and thank him for putting "NOT1969Camaro" in his ad.
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=6161&item=4516271861&rd=1

    And this dork for clearing up in the title that it's not an SS:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=6161&item=4515284603&rd=1

    I'd reall like to email eachof these guys to thank them for showing up in my camaro search and telling me what they're selling is not what i'm looking for:

    Not a Cuda/Camaro/Nova:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=5357&item=4516305479&rd=1

    Not a 68 or 69:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=6161&item=4516178960&rd=1

    Not a Camaro:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=6427&item=4516122627&rd=1

    Also Not a camaro:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=6420&item=4516038497&rd=1

    Not a Nova/Chevelle/Camaro:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=6173&item=4515977908&rd=1

    I almost mistook this for a Trans Am, glad he pointed out in the ad it's not a trans am or Camaro:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=6236&item=4515890136&rd=1

    No, silly, it's not a Camaro, Chevrolet, Pontiac, and AMC, even though all of those could be mistaken for each other:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=6172&item=4515718127&rd=1





    If I do a search for a Camaro, WTF makes you think I want a Nova? Or a Mustang? Wouldn't i have searched for those if i wanted one?
    If I could bid and just blow my ebay account to pieces, I'd bid a million dollars on every auction that had a "Not..." in it. Just to screw them up for cluttering the crap out of and screwing up my searches. Why bother, I search Camaro I get 300 Camaro's, and 30 various "not Camaro"'s.

    That's about infuriating.

    But not as bad as the porn site homepage a couple years ago that had the phrase "breast cancer" somewhere in it, so it would come up in Yahoo and Google searches for breast cancer. Now that's some f*cked-up, repugnant sh*t...
