What Language Do You Speak?

This is too crazy not to post:

"camaro for sale - $5000
1996 camaro color red v6 3.8 tip top wery cline cd plear wery fast clin titale"


"ford van for sale - $1300
1987 blue very clien ran strong black windos 160000 miles comp staff low on gas v6 4.2"

I've ghost written for a Japanese writer before (who wrote in English, but needed a major grammar and idiomatic overhaul) and translating the above was nearly as hard. No wait. Harder. What the hell does "comp staff" mean?
