In Chrome, if you right click on the image and select "Inspect", it will show you the URL where the image is listed. If you look at my linked image, you will see that Craigslist is hosting the image. The link will break a few days/weeks after the ad expires and they clear the image from their server.
He was mistaken, the Volt tells you when oil pressure is low, he assumed it was dead because the dealer said it was and because the pump was noisy.

The guy who bought it just flushed and installed an oil pump rebuild kit.
