That's pretty cool.
Seems like people used to prep things to sell.
Maybe free/cheap ads show a lot of the nonsense we used to be shielded from.
I remember going across town to look at a VW Beetle 20 some odd years ago (in the days of buying an Auto Trader and only getting to see one picture)...
The guy had a great ad, but when we got there the car was a mix-matched bag of crap.
The guy even had a friend over that was pretending to be another interested buyer.
Me and my buddy laughed all the way home on that one.
