Do you want to buy a car with manual transmission or just the transmission?

My car is Magnetite blue and it's beautiful. When someone sees a different colour that they really like, they often change their minds.

It is a pet peeve of mine when people don't use punctuation.  For example:

Let's eat, grandma.
Let's eat grandma.

So, what I think he meant was:

WTB: 280sl, manual transmission, good++ condition, original or restored (but not aftermarket creation), not a project car.  Prefer silver, black, or green body paint.  No accidents or rust.

This was his first post on the forum, we'll see if he comes back to check this thread.

If you read the whole post, not just the first line, it was pretty obvious what he meant.
It is my pet peeve that people do not read posts in their entirety and then respond.

I've never done that even one time. ONE thousand times - but never one time.   :)

Let's eat grandma.

For those interested in the fine art of punctuation, I recommend a book entitled "Eats, shoots, and leaves."

@Mike Huges

Along those lines, there is a funny joke about a koala bear and a prostitute - google it at your own disretion. Since I'm new to the forum, I will not cut and paste it in this thread, as some might find it offensive.

Whilst I hate to diverge from the lingusitics conversation, I now dare to turn to the issue at hand, namely.....does anyone have a 280 SL, in good +++ condition, with a manual transimission, that is not a project car, and happens to be rust free, which such said car they would be willing to sell???

I hereby declare that my preference for such a subject car would be that the exterior paint color be one of the following hues: silver, black, green or blue.

(I think I burned through the comma key on my keyboard) LOL.

Again. I have exactly what you want. Blue 280SL, four speed, clean car.
