The following is a real ad that I ran on my ad page. The items have been sold, so it is no longer valid. I have changed the email and phone number, but all the names are correct.

26 days after I ran the ad, I received the following email:

Hello Gene.
     My name is Pamela Nowlin and I was advertising my father-in-law's tractors on your page. They have all sold. It was an ad for the John Deere 720, 80, D and R. Somebody from Pennsylvania bought them all. The ad also had a Cockshut 40 and an IH KB5. If you could please take the ad off. Thank you very much for your help and my father-in-law is very excited about how well it all went. Thank you,

Pamela Nowlin
