Maybe some of you have heard this, it was a story on Paul Harvey years ago.

A proof reader at a large newspapers was proofreading the want adds before they went to print. One add read "1979 Porsche $25.00". Surely, this is wrong so the proof reader call the number listed. A women answered and the proofreader read the add to her and ask her to correct the add. The women said no there was no mistake the add was right. She went on to say that it was her husbands car and her had run off with his secretary and had told her to sell the car and send him the money.

Just thought you guys would enjoy this.

I don't know if this is urban legend or not but I have heard the same thing about someone's large record collection.

That is not real, in fact. It was found to be a publicity stunt by Revere, the company that gussied up that Range Rover.
