Dear Friend and Subscriber,

   This is another of my semi-famous "Can-You-Guess?" newsletters.

   What you are about to read is a letter I wrote to sell Rolls Royce motorcars. It was mailed to people who owned late model Cadillacs, Lincolns, Mercedes' and other luxury cars.

   Your job is to read this letter and then e-mail me at and tell me if you think the letter was a winner, a loser, or just mediocre. Here's the letter.

Dear Friend,

  Please take a look at the photograph I am sending you with this letter.

  What you are looking at is a picture of a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow I can sell you so cheaply you will find it hard to believe! Why is this car so inexpensive? Actually, there are three reasons and each of them is equally important: First of all, I am not a "used car dealer" in the usual sense of the word. No. What I do is specialize in absolutely nothing but pre-owned Rolls Royces and I have developed a remarkable way to get these cars into the country at a cost so low it will take your breath away!

  And secondly, if you so desire, I have worked out a way to finance cars over a period of four to five years at a very favorable rate of interest.

  And thirdly, I am not overwhelmingly greedy. That's important. You see, many people in the car business are only in it for the money, but that's not true with me. And, as a matter of fact, it's not true of anybody that is really in love with the Rolls Royce motor car.

  A Rolls Royce is different. It is more than just a car, it is a legend. When you drive one, everybody knows you are special.You are admired by women and envied by men. Quite frankly, there is nothing else in the entire world that will give you the instant status as sitting behind the wheel of your very own "Queen of the Road."

   Let's face it. As the owner of a late model automobile, you already know the value of owning and driving a fine motor car, so my question to you is:

   Why Not Go All The Way? With the unbelievably low price I can offer plus the 100% financing I can arrange, it might even be cheaper to drive a Rolls Royce than the car you now have!

   Please call me as soon as you read this letter. Right now, I only have five of these wonderful bargains and they won't last long! My number is 000-000-0000.

P.S.       A Rolls Royce lives forever. The            one you drive today could be            driven by your grandchildren.

P.S.S.     There is another "mystery reason"            why I can sell these Rolls Royces            so cheaply, but I would prefer            not to reveal it until we talk on            the phone. Thank you.


    Okay. That's it. Short, but sweet. How did it do? You tell me. E-mail your pathetic guess to me right away!
