Thumbing through my photos for the registry......

thought I might as well post a pic of the first trophy I won in the maroon CS. This was a 150-175 car show with a Peoples Choice for the top 20. Long live the mullet (haircut).

Jason;
Was comparing your Marti Report for your "S" code to mine and I find it strange your report didn't list "4,766 with GT Equipment Group" under the statistics area even though it's shown in the options list. What's even stranger is my Marti Report doesn't list "4,118 with California Special" in the statistics area even though it's listed under the options list. At least they got the "1,343 with these Engine/Transmission Codes" correct. That's what is shown on my Marti Report on my GT. Kinda makes me wonder just how accurate they are being with these reports. Or could they be limiting this area to just "5" entries? Could this be a question to pose to Kevin Marti?

I think Marti changes around the fields that show the rarity. I ordered the $200 full meal deal from Marti and asked if he could list the raraity of the 390, C-6 and the ones from Canada and he said it will only use the numbers from all of the 68's and cannot narrow it down to only the CS's. I was pretty irritated he could not narrow down the stats the way I wanted (especially for the $200 fee).

Herck, good to see you got it uploaded.

I see yours got the extra cooling package (bigger radiator? transmission cooler?). Have you added AC? I had to down here.
