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.

Perhaps a distant relative of Ken Miles was in the same city as the car, briefly. LOL Basically it has nothing at all to do with Ken Miles, whatsover.
