Someone is interested in buying an elderly restored car.
Buyer: It’s a good restoration.
But the color?
Restorer: So yes, it’s not exactly a faithful restoration. More like an adaptation.
Buyer: The dashboard is interesting. The clock is on the right. Originally, it was on the left.
Restorer: You’ve a good eye for these things.
Selling a car may not be easy. Vintage car buyers are often knowledgable and picky. The color and the clock. The restorer got these wrong and has to admit these shortcomings. And smooth things over. Using affirmatives (Yes, you’re right…) even for negatives. And end up praising the buyer’s discernment. We can't always say what we want to say.
A Mercedes, yes.
