I mean it also says a Rolls Royce "Turbo R" (Bentley) was a clunker. Really doubt it--i think a lot of wishful thinking.

Ron's right. If anybody would be stupid enough to try to turn one in under the cash for clunker program (which is totally ridiculous because it would never happen) the dealer would know the vehicle's value.

I doubt that said "rich guy" is going and turning in his NAS110 at the local Kia or Saturn dealer. Most likely would occur at an Audi/BMW/Mercedes dealer or the like. They might have shown them a $4500 discount and then wholesaled the thing. Of course, in that scenario, it would not show up on any CFC data.

Most likely though, the link is totally bogus or a 1993 Range Rover, which is very likely. Most people think Discovery's are Range Rovers, Range Rovers are LR3s, LR3s are Defenders, etc. !!!

Also, if that Mercedes that you pictured had 200K miles and needed $8K worth of work to be sell-able, then yes, maybe that dealer could not offer more than $4,500 for it.

Sounds totally bogus though just like the D90!

I think that is the most logical theory. Basically two pieces of rusted
crap and owners that don't know the value of the VIN. Sound completely
possible to me.

A VIN swap + shipping + cost for the original VIN donner + coach air fare to the UK also throw in a 2 week vacation and you would still have 25 to 30K left...

Even i I had that much disposable cash I would opt for a truly re manufactured 110 by ECR The Beach Runner is truly work of art IMO...

What can I say. I know a couple that have been destroyed. And I have hybrid Princess lust. So I built up a couple 109 shells out back. I just split a few atoms and combined a few molecues. No harm meant.
