Default Two for sale sections - one for parts and one for cars

I'd think having two for sale sections would be very nice...one for parts and accessories and another for vehicles. It'* tiring sifting through the current for sale section looking for cars.

Opinions?

On a truck forum I go to, they have a section for parts, and another section for complete running trucks. Since alot of people are into rebuilding the trucks ( 69 GMC is what I had).

That way if you are looking for a truck to buy and drive, you go into that section. If you want parts, you go into the proper section. I like it. It does start to add to the length of the main page, but it has a purpose.

How many complete cars have been listed, much less bought or sold on this forum?

I know of three that were bought/sold. In 3 years. Perhaps an average of one per month listed?

I'm not sure it'* worth lengthening the Forum list for this purpose. Any counter-arguments? Do these stats help?

You know what guys, I have agree with willwren. I suggest if it'* a whole car that is being sold and not parted out, just put this next to the subject (Whole, not parting out) or something like that so that we know if we want parts or an actual car.

Does that makes sense?

Well, there could be a sub-forum within the section at the top. So you when you go into for sale, you sell all the threads like normal, and at the top there is a "whole car sub forum" that would only take up very little screen space.

Our version of php (even though it'* the latest) doesn't support subforums under headings.

Oh, I must have seen it on VB. Is there a hack for it?

There may be a mod, but I don't think 3 RUNNING cars sold here in 3 years justifies it.
