A casual tire kicker could get the impression that the dealer is making sales because of good prices or some such reason that might encourage a potential customer to look closer at their inventory.

or not.
We're not trying to appear busy,WE ARE BUSY

Far as the add goes, I think it was up for a day not showing the sold tag, could be wrong here.

In any case nothing wrong with having folks think you are moving some boats, gets people thinking you must be doing something right. Shogren does their "Sale Pending" and "Sold" tags all the time. Lets people know they are doing business and really are selling stuff, just plain smart in my book. Nothing makes you want it more than seeing you just missed out on it!
