Never offense! It's not the nicest way to do it, but it works. It's just a great way to marry up buyers with sellers without dealing with the internet bs or dealer bs. People also think it's a local car and call only if they are interested. Also it's $50K BMW not a F1, parking it and leaving it should really not be an issue.

Also, Cozza's car is pretty and pretty cars attract a lot of people at these things. He might get someone with a bit of cash who wants a car that turns head. Enthusiasts, who is usually who you get from online ads for these cars, are serious pain in the ass to sell to sometimes - it's inherently what makes us enthusiasts!

I use to manage Audi & Porsche here, so I have a slight hint of an idea of how cars sell.
