No connection to me, but I noticed it's on eBay

I like the $170k price tag here more than the one on ebay. I messaged them and also no response.
 
There is a discussion on fchat, seller claims this ad was posted without approval.
The new seller is the new broker, just trying to make more profit or find a sucker. They already offered the car to me at $190k.

I never got a reply when it was listed at $170, as few people pointed out it sold for around $155-160ish?
 
Based on the broker's description on Fchat, the owner has consigned the car with them and the add here is bogus/unauthorized.

I agree they were just trying to find a sucker. Price already down to 190K.

Apart from an average representation of the 'paint job', what on earth has this example to do with Ken Miles ?
The mind boggles.. They didn't even get the engine right, transmission etc, let alone literally hundreds of other parts and details.
Please don't blame it on a virus..
