I see Tom Laferriere's name on all the photos, but if you go to Tom's website, the car is not listed. 

Is it possible the seller is reusing photos from when they purchased it some time ago?

Ok, that’s the funniest thing I’ve heard in a while - and it’s true. Old car guys are pretty sharp and never forget a car. Can’t remember what we did 5 minutes ago... But never forget a car. More scams caught here than any other place I know.

You guys are awesome and pretty sharp.  I just listed this car yesterday on Facebook, I have not had a chance to write the full description or get it on my website.

 

But my phone has been blowing up all day because of it!  😁

 

Stunning car. Even more impressive is that the color is original.

Watch out for the flippers, folks. Not talking about the reputable dealers like the guy who last sold this car. I don't know if there's been enough time since the car was sold to do a compression check, a change and inspection of the fluids, the verification of oil pressure readings, brake inspection, or driving for more than three blocks, etc., etc. The current seller has a good rep on ebay, so that's good. I didn't say "never trust flippers"...just watch out for them. They have no hands-on history of the car.
