I found out your problem. If a user clicks "New Thread" it creates a new plain thread. Which is what users are now doing, since the "system" isn't easy to find ("http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/vbclassified.php"). If you use the "Submit New Ad" link, it creates a thread that redirects to the classified ad.
What needs done, is the "New Thread" link needs changed to the "Submit New Ad" link. Which I don't know how easy that will be to do. Seems like it would require some hard coding.
Maybe you could disable creating new threads in the "classified" forum, then add a redirect thread to "submit New Ad" link and sticky it to the top.

All information expressed in this post is my opinion, and should not be regarded as a statement of fact.
All new ads will create a new link like a thread and this is working as it should.
I've tried running a script that should create 'threads' (links) to the currently open items in the classifieds, but it's not working.
I've sent in for help to the developer that has designed the classified system and I should hear back today. It's not a killer issue as there's plenty of ways to get to the classifieds, it's just not 100% how I want it.
Thanks for continuing to follow-up with me. Since moving into our new house, I've been a bit scattered...and now I'm getting high on paint fumes.
