Sounds like good dating advice. ;-)

Yes, I know exactly what you mean--it's kind of like searching for
auctions with mis-spelled words, but instead you look at the
description and match it to whatever is pictured.  That's how I bought
a Pismo back in '02 or so that was described as a Lombard, and made
almost double what I paid when I turned around and sold it.

You have to know your gear really well, though, to be able to find these gems.
