I would get a Marti Report before I shelled out any serious money.

Registry shows this car as not being a deluxe interior car, and it was Lime Green.

The on-line registry shows different values.

For those following the Printed 2011 Registry, We have found many inaccuracies with that Regisrty. Please keep bringing them to our attention. Our goal is to document every GT/CS and HCS cars and do it accurately. This is one to insist on a Marti Report to confirm this cars "true colors".

Sure is ^^

Biggest pet peeve is horrible docked up exhaust tips... these are just terrible. WAY too low, and way to far out, off the valance... (and the "transverse muffler" is hanging a tad too low too... good for some fireworks display?) shame too, cause they're the correct "rolled style" tsk tsk.

Less we forget the side stripes that look like a blind man installed them. Other than that, the car sure is sharp minus the obvious point out attributes (good to see the "leather" inserts on the scoops behind the grills, but not the correct lenses on the fogs haha although from a different standpoint its rather clean)

anyone know what the "u- shaped washer" next to the driver side fuel line cover is? ( rear in front of leaf spring) never seen it before

The rocker trims are also backwards.
Please note that the tilt steering is not original because there is only one switch on the door jamb.
And to be fair getting the scoop stripe lined up correctly is quite difficult.
Check out the frame damage caused by a someone using a hydraulic jack.

There are also other typical issues like the grille painted the wrong color, black trim on the tail lights, underside painted black.
All in all it's a good looking car, though.
