Although obviously the advert was a little hard to understand in French, I got the jist of what was stated lol. It looks like a good deal to me, although I'm not sure how the value stands over there with regard to the currency/used car value....You sure do get through some cars lol

it actually looks to be a good buy, (i know a little french lol)

but unless you do something to make the value go up, or just strike an amazing deal, your gonna have trouble selling it for double the price you just bought it for

I think cliffy means the ad for the camaro,

and illusion, you cant just "make the value go up"
dont you know the value of a car depends on how good the car is, maybe this particular camaro has rust all over the underbody, etc etc.. there should be a reason for the lower price
