Arrow Show Boards: What information do you put?

Any of you who have Show Boards for car shows; What information do you put in those boards? The history of the GT/CS? The specific information about engine, transmission etc. The Marti report?
Please post your comments so I can get some ideas for mine when its ready.

I use the Elite Marti Report, and the Dealer Brochure framed (discussed in the site before). Both confirm to anyone wondering what it is. I also keep a "book" of items for people to view (original build sheet, original warranty cards, original manual, original 68 magazine ads, SAAC articles announcing the CS - etc, also to confirm the authenticity of the CS).

I did the same thing as Casey. I framed my dealer brochure and printed the owner information at the bottom. It looks great and explains all.

Hey Tim - nice board! When discussing with people it is 3867 for the CS and 251 for the HCS. Total 4118. I figure you know that, and talk to both with your board. Just fyi'ing others on the site. Casey

I made up my own frame.

I have my Marti Report, Dealer Brochure and a page I made up including info from Paul's books (with credit given of course), plus this site's URL and other pictures.

If anyone would like to quote a line, sentance, numbers or even a photo from either my 1989 or 1996 books, you may do so for your display board(s).

All I ask is that you just include the following at the bottom, in small type:

Source: "GT/CS Recognition Guide & Owner's Manual" by Paul M. Newitt
1989, 1996"

If anyone wants to quote my engine/transmission combos from the website may do so without prior approval from me.

please include this sentence on your show board:
