    I'm guessing it's BS or a prank.

    Something is Wierd as area code 310 is Los Angeles. Also this was the color of the wrecked one that sold cheaply earlier this year.

    I have tried this ad and I think its a scam. The phone is a cell number in L.A. and the car is in Oklahoma. No on answers and there is no answering machine. It just states to call back.

    The ad does not give a VIN for the car!

    It is a scam

    The car is identified as #389 which was already for sale on ebay. Different car/different pictures. The seller tried to get me to pay through a fake Amazon escrow service he had set up in China.

    I reported it to cars.com, Amazon, and the FBI.

    I became suspicious when the car was registered in Illinois, supposedly had California stickers, and was in Oklahoma. The "seller" called me from Washington and said he was there. Emailed me repeatedly about using this escrow site - which turned out to be fake.

    Looks like if it's too good to be true, it is. Nice work.
