For being a Grand Torino - er Gran Tourismo (GT), it doesn't seem to have the right valence or motor...

Man, this car keeps popping up. Must be something really wrong with it. It was for sale back in October when I picked up mine. I was never aware of the cross over Gran Torino GTCS Mustang. Those sneaky Ford Marketing guys!

Yes - I am sure it is - I am reverting to some Italian motor sports from the past - or maybe it was Japanese - not sure... ;)

We do not have a Marti Report
Hmm... guess that $25 is too much to ask to validate the car!

Wrong hood, regular hood bumpers, no twist lock brackets, wrong grille, don't apper to be holes fro CS rear scripts or reflectors.... could guess some fiberglass on the sides and rear... but the decklid does have the right holes for the Mustang script.... and the VIN falls in for a 15C build date and right among many in the registry... maybe a front clip scaring folks off...?

I thought GT stood for Good Times, which is more fitting to what I have with mine. I emailed the guy about the Marti Report and he told me: "I never knew what a Marti report was until a couple weeks ago and after finding out what they cost I know I wont be getting one. Thanks". So there you are.

Cause $25 is practically breaking the bank. Smells fishy to me.

Maybe you were thinking of Gran Turismo Omologato

Hmmm, I always thought GT stood for Get Tires! Mainly because the tread always seems to disappear on my rear tires. Ha! Ha! Ha!

In January I went to Barrett-Jackson, and we also visited Marti Autoworks for his open house.
We got a private tour with Kevin, he says that he does all of the Marti Reports himself.
I asked him if your name sounded familiar, he said, absolutely.

Cool

I have ordered a Marti report for this car. It is only $15 for a basic report that is emailed to you. Mike I will forward it on to you once I receive it.

Cheers,

Ron
