Am I missing something here? What the heck is this person talking about. I was looking over car ads on ebay and saw this ad

The seller mentions nothing about the car except that after cleaning, a swastika can be seen.

Fortunately no such luck on selling whatever it happens to be, I too have been puzzled by this joker... interestingly enough, masked id and no feedback,,, go figure.

Looks like the handy work of a bored 12 year old with a pocket knife to me.

You know what is funny about this is why in the hell would anyone take a picture of a dirty wheel well. "Gee, I should snap a picture of this dirt just incase there is anything interesting.....wait....what is this?????" Yeah, right.

Ive seen this as well. Is this an imprint, or a hole in the wheel well. And why wouldn't the owner fix this with something rather than take a picture of it and put it on ebay hoping to sell it????

I emailed that guy to see what on earth he was talking about. Here is his reply:

Subject: Mercedes 300 on Ebay

A car with 360,000 miles on it has to be in impeccable
shape in order to get such mileage on it. As stated the left front wheel well has an imprint of a swastika . Hate to sell this car without pointing this atrasty out. No skin heads need to apply. Found during paint restoration that this was imprinted in the chemical bath in preventing rust.

Still doesn't make much sense. If you had a car with 360k miles on it and the only imperfection was a mark under the wheel well, why would that be the only thing you said about it? Why not talk about the positive points, perfect paint, new transmission, whatever. That guy is ODD!
