What's Up With This

In my endless search for a unicorn (non-rusty truck in New England) I came across what looked like a promising specimen this morning. A 2006 Silverado 1500 with a plow, but only 55k miles. This couldn’t have been a daily driver, or not likely. Hopefully it lived in a garage? But it does have a plow. Anyway, it looks clean, but the ad is a bunch of garbage:

Yeah... what? But back on topic!

This guy seems to have a dealer license. Why, then, are all these pictures taken at different locations. It makes it LOOK like a private sale, but it isn’t. Is that because these are trade-ins that are too shitty for his normal inventory, or have some weird title issue, or... they’re maybe a famous NFL player’s party bus with the wrap job stripped off? Is this super shady? Or just normal used-car business?


Should I even bother contacting him about the truck, or should the other listings be enough evidence of general shadiness to run fast and far?
