No Commercial advertising of any kind in BuggyTrader unless
you are a paying
sponsor and your ad fits in with the nature of BuggyTrader. Read that again
BuggyTrader is for ads, so the post should be an ad or in some circumstances
a response directly related to an ad.
You should not post an ad for an ad.
There's a buggy for sale here...check it out or email me.
I have a buggy for sale, it has this, this and this, I want this much.
You can see more pictures at this link.
If you are looking for something, be specific. For Example:
I want a Buggy send pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org along with full
Explanation: You may be wondering about this example. My view is that if the
person is not taking the time to write a suitable description of what he wants,
he is probably just collecting emails, pictures, etc. This wastes everyone's
I live in South Idaho and I'm looking for an off-road rail. I don't mind
fixing it up but I don't want to get into a complete rebuild. I can spend up to
If you have a list of parts, post the list.
Not Allowed: I have a lot of buggy parts...email me for the
Explanation: If you have the time to email everyone a list, you have
the time to post the list - make sense?
Prefix: When you post an ad, pick
an appropriate prefix:
WTB = Want to Buy
FS = For Sale
Trade = Trade
Location and Headline: After the prefix
put in your location (Philadelphia Pennsylvania, Central New Jersey,
MummyLand Egypt, etc) and then type a descriptive subject line. There is
now a site wide search engine that people can use to search for their location.
If you type the full State/location name you will be rewarded with more
Put a price either on the headline or in the ad because people will ask you
that anyway - right?
In the ad include as much information as possible.
If you have any questions about an existing ad you should respond through
personal email in most cases unless it is something that everyone will be
When you sell: Please post a reply to
your original ad and state in the subject line that the car or part has been
SOLD and leave a brief message about your experience with BuggyTrader. This is
not a hard and fast rule, but it does allow the readers to see what was bought
or sold. Tip: To find your ads use the search function and search
for your username.
appropriate to advertise:
This is a community of Buggiers and as such, the ad should be for something
that a buggier uses and not something that the general public would need. To put
it another way: if this community is likely to have it (or want it) in their
garage, at the track, or at the campsite AND the general public is not likely to
have an interest in it then it's OK. There's a lot of gray area there so here
are some general guidelines:
If you want to post an ad and you think it's in one of the gray areas,
ask yourself this question: "Would I pay money to advertise my item to this
market?" If you can honestly answer "yes", then more than likely
it's suitable. If you answer "no" to yourself then it's probably not
- Rails, fiberglass buggies, Baja bugs, mini buggies, 4wd buggies, old VWs
- Parts for buggies
- An old/cheap Tacoma that could make a 4WD buggy.
- Car Trailers
- VW based Kit Car bodies
- Kit Car bodies
- Restored Bug that will never be a Baja
- Your neighbors brand new Tacoma
Trades are OK if the headline clearly
states what you have and that you want to trade. If it's something that the
general public will have an interest in (a brand new Escort for instance) then
you should use autotrader or one of the other generic classified sites to sell
your product and then come back with cash. (You'll get a better deal)
