For those wanting a Factory Built GT/CS or HCS, always insist on a Marti Report. If you obtain a Marti Report, Please forward a copy to me for the Registry. Thanks for all you support. Mike Jewell
Mike,
The effort you make to have the Registry be accurate is appreciated!
Thank you!

Sorry. This is a known issue at the moment. I just have not been able to fix it yet.

We have it tagged in the Registry as a clone. The online Registry is governed by Jon Hanna, and is subject to the owners data entry. If the owner does not want to update the online Registry to reflect this, that is their perogative and we will not insist any change. Hope you can appreciate this. Mike ps. was your S code ever recovered? I have it tagged as stolen in the Registry just in case it surfaces.

New GT/CS Registry

I am registered on Ron Davis' registry & purchased my certificate & dash/engine plaques last year. Does anyone know how or if I can get a Marti Report for my 2008 GT/CS? The only site i found only goes to 2007. Help?!?

Aloha. First, thanks for taking on the task of maintaining the registry. I know it can be very time consuming.

I was reading a post in the main forum asking about production numbers of various options of GT/CS cars (e.g.: how many were made with a 390, 4 speed and highland green?). If this has not already been done, would it be possible to get a data dump from Kevin Marti of all the data on all CS and HCS cars. If he omits the VIN then we would have valuable data about CS & HCS production, and it would not harm his business.

I acknowledge that someone with low morals could use this info to build a fake "1 of 1" CS, but it could also help our members with resale of their own cars.

My apologies if this already exists, but I did not see it.

Kevin Marti did a breakdown of cars and supplied it to then Registrar Paul Newitt for his book on the GT/CS. It is copyrighted and can not be posted here unfortunately. Kevin Marti was also approached about a comprehensive breakdown of options etc. which he declined as well as a complete list of VIN for the GT/CS & HCS. This info is his bread and butter and stands to make more profit on an individual basis. Can't blame the guy. FYI, there were 23 Highland green, GT390/4 speed GT/CSs produced. Mike Jewell.

Aloha Mike. Mahalo for the quick reply.

I was thinking that this might generate some business for Kevin, but on second thought I think the actual Marti report shows you the "1 of x" information. So, never mind...

Aloha
