All GTOs have PHS doc unique to the vin number on each car. If the doc you received is "exactly" the same as the sample, it's not the proper doc for that car. I see the seller has a "0" rating.. Red Flags.... Ask him for the vin number and you can have PHS fax the docs to you and verify if it's a GTO or not and what options it's supposed to have...

The seller should also post a pic of the Data Plate...

Sounds funny to me also. Ask him for a pic of the full VIN plate on the car, and a copy of the matching PHS doc. You could also contact JIM MATTISON at PHS and see what he says. Eric

YES YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED tell him you will have your mechanic come by and check out the car and see how fast he doesnt respond- or better yet tell him you will send him a cashiers check for 10000 over the cost and he can cash the check and send you back $9000- or even smarter still stop talking to this A-hole

Never bid on a car unless you can verify all the information and the car is exactly what the seller claims it to be...
