The New HotRod Hotline Classified Section

Since we recently migrated our servers, there have been some changes to the way buyers and sellers interact with different parts of the classified section and we wanted to update everyone on these changes in order to alleviate any confusion.

Please use this as a guide to to Creating and Posting or Changing an ad, as well as a guide for the differences you might find.

If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail staff@hotrodhotline.com or call us at (877) 700-2468 and we’ll be happy to help you out!
