That is full of so many things that's wrong and miss leading, lol. Power to the guy if he can sell it for that crazy price. Should be at least 10k less.

Here is what I think...

It is his neighbor's car and has a loud exhaust. He is tired of the noise, so he took a pic of it from his house, wrote the ad with what little info he had on the G8, and threw $35,000 at it. He's hoping that someone will bite, then the owner would not be able to say "no" even though he has no clue why someone just stopped by to offer him $30,000 for a $22,000 car

If its parked outside in Michigan its not mint.

Ran across an ad yesterday for a "1 of 1" Buick Regal T-Type $45k with a laundry list of fanatically over the top claims. The Buick guys would eat this guy alive as well.

Yea let's not sell this vehicles on enthusiast sites, let's sell them on Craigslist.
