Poor Punctuation Marks 1985 Johnson Phantom at Super Low Price

In this time of credit crunch people are selling things they don’t want or need for ridiculously low prices. This advertisement for a 1985 Johnson Phantom appears to be skating along that pattern.

A Houston resident mistakenly put his '85 Phantom up for sale on Craigslist at a whopping price of $45 (USD). Now, the reason it’s listed at such a beautiful prices is because he’s a little confused about punctuation. The owner of the retro car will only sell to "SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY."

With people taking charge of their own advertisements, there should be at least one extra editing process (or two in this case: he said he purchased the car for $65.000). At $45.000 (should be a comma) how could he expect "SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY?"
