My favorite part of the listing:
The vehicle is Other with a Other interior.
What this shows is that someone has made the common mistake of copying the format and text of an existing standard listing, but failed to make all the necessary changes to update it for the specific car being offered for sale. The copied format was for a 4.0L V6 Mustang, but they failed to update that to the 5.4L V8 for the GT500. The copied format also required that they insert the colors of the exterior and interior of the car in place of the word "other" two places in the sentence I copied (see above).

He removed the post so maybe he sold it to some unsuspecting sole.
