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!
