Now let's say that he does have the car, for sake of argument. What you just said has a habit of scaring away people who actually have the car, and ruins his or her first impression on our forum.
Now, if you were to say something closer to "Hey! Congratulations on the purchase! I'm sure it's a beauty. Also, welcome to the forums. I hate to be the one to ask this, but would you mind just taking a piece of paper with the words Car-Forums, spear it over the gear shift knob, and take a photo? It's just that there's a lot of people that come by and try to pass off a car as their own, and we like authenticity
Thanks in advance!"
Would that not accomplish both what you were trying to set out to, and take out the possible consequences of your post?
Hardly ever does good ever come from insulting someone you just met.
