I always find myself laughing when I read these sorts of comments in an ad; those same cars are usually overpriced by at least 30% and, as you said, they stay for sale for years. Several cars in my area are currently suffering from this sort of condition (one is a 2nd gen Firebird that's been for sale for about 5 years now.) But, since these guys "know what they have", I guess they're already aware of the bloated, unrealistic price and the fact the car will remain for sale forever.
I think some people just feel good about having their car listed, they don't really care if it sells or perhaps don't even want to sell it. Something about the excitement of "what if?" must give them some joy, sort of like buying a lotto ticket I guess. In their minds, as long as the listing is up then perhaps their fantasy can become reality.
