Camaro on used car lot?

Already? A used car lot on ebay has an orange SS already. Price is ridiculous though, I'm guessing fake bidders.

I am sure that for a while there will be a few non enthuiasts that get their greedy little paws on one of our beloved cars and try to gouge a fast buck off of it. That is what happened to Harleys in the 1990s. The dealer would sell a motorcycle on Friday for MSRP and see it in the Sunday paper marked up $3000 to $5000. That is how they got Harley to allow them to sell at over MSRP.

looks like the odometer is 282

range looks to be 171 with the fuel gauge showing almost full. Since it calculates your last average mpg to fuel currently on board.

Yep those are spirited driving or trapped in the city miles.

Whats the fuel capacity 19 gallons or close to it?

If you take the range of 171 miles and say the tank is Less than half full at 9 gallons you get 171/9= 19 mpg. Since it obviously has more than a half tank it was getting closer to 10 or 11 mpg. Someone had their foot on the floor more than once those 282 miles.

or the engine was idled for a long period of time.

Look at the VIN, it's a pre production car.
