Did they write out "the third" instead of III or is his full last name "Verbruggen the Third"

This is part of the Joe Verde "How to Sell a Car Today" sales training. Specifically, it suggests writing a note on the back of a business card.

Did anyone else read "the Turd" when they read his name?

Dude looks like he fell out of one of those '90s episodes of Cops that were filmed in PDX.

Yes. Also immediately thought he must be connected in some way to Bob Lamphere's Used Cars in Beaverton.

Am I reading tfa correctly that you can't sell a car by private treaty in Oregon? Even here in worker's paradise of Minnesota they give us that much leeway.

You are not a car salesman, Norman. You are a lesbian high school gym teacher.

Yes, they do. I live in Portland and see the ads. And congrats on getting the spelling rights. But the ads I see most are for Dick's.

To be proper about it, you only use III when junior and senior are still alive. Not saying they're not in this case, but III is often misused.

I drive a 2006 Accord, and I get notes like that every couple of months. I don't see anything creepy about it. Annoying, yes, but not more so than getting fliers for crappy pizza stuck in my door.

This guy's problem is just that he was so prolific. He probably just didn't realize he was putting notes on the same car at two or three locations.

I usually write ", père" after my name whenever I have to fill out some BS form. It satisfies the clerks' inner need to have forms filled but confuses their databases to the point where it virtually ensures I receive none of their useless spam, email or snail mail.

I get relentless phone calls from GE telling me I've won a home security system. I always take the call so I can tell the telemarketer I'm homeless (which is true).

There's no problem privately selling a car in Oregon. I believe there is a limit to the number of cars a person can sell in a year without a dealers license.

State laws typically define a "dealer" who needs licensing as someone who flips more than X cars per year.  Same with pet breeders.

The notes are creepy, but I've been known to leave Rude and Insulting Fake Parking Tickets on occasion.

Years ago when I lived in Oregon, although a different part of the state, a note just like that was left on my car. It was a 96 Ford Escort so my BS detector went off immediately. Never did call the number but I bet it was the same kind of deal, because who else would offer to buy a 96 Escort?

5 speed models were great on gas and cheap to fix. they also made you invisible to women.... but hey you at least could get over 30 mpg

This was itching my brain when I saw the pic in the article, but your post sealed it.

The garage is full of stuff, so I park on the driveway. There's my car, the wife's car, the old beater I keep as a spare, and a convertible. I had someone stop and ask about the beater (I assume he was a scrap dealer), and someone else asking about buying all of them. The Kirby salesman was willing to trade me a vacuum cleaner for the convertible. All this in the last six months.

I tend to keep cars until they're dead and then scrap them.

That's true. It was a great car for college because of the gas mileage (I had a 5 speed manual) but completely gutless. It had something like 90 horsepower. I had to drive over some mountains to go home, and quickly learned to floor it going downhill or else I'd be crawling up the next hill in the semi-truck lane. My next car was actually a newer Escort, with a bit more oomph, but even with that one, to pass people or go up big hills I had to put it in "turbo mode" (shut off the AC.)

Worked there as a detailer for a very brief time back in '88. 3 months worth of their shenanigans and I headed back to college.

I'm so disappointed people passed up such a freely-given straight line as that. For shame, farkers.
