Separated at Birth RESOLVED!

These are two separate cars owned by two separate individuals, yet for all intensive purposes they are exactly identical.

What am I on about? Why, the minute differences between this 2007 Ford Escape in blue with the 5 speed and 161,000 miles for sale for $3750. . .

See what I mean? It’s like these owners are twins. Even down to the wear on the interior.

Apart from the presence of a water bottle, they are identical in ever appreciable way. Even the driving position! Someone tell someone about their long lost brother separated at birth!

I only noticed because they post their ads new every day within a few hours of each other. The location indicates they live 30 minutes away from each other so they can’t be the same person. Tell me I’m not crazy.

UPDATE: Just Jeepin’ pointed out that the odometer readings are the same between both ads. So they are the same car after all.

I’m just mystified as to why two entirely separate ads were created. Seriously, this took a lot of effort to photograph each car as to make them look different, down to moving the seats to different positions and pretending they are different years and different prices. I can only assume the two phone numbers were cell and work numbers. But then again, neither of those numbers corresponds to the number on the dealer temp plate. Just what on earth is going on?
