==================================

Edited
By request I added about 5 pics of the Marti report in my "Monthly Updates" section my website mentioned above.
No longer can you add links in a ebay listing so you'll need to just read the above - in hopes you can find it
I also have a request for videos. I have about 8 videos of this car also on the website.
There is a link in the yellow table on the Monthly Updates Page.
Again....
Google Attitude Custom Painting - once at the website, look in the left hand menu for the pic of the red Montego Body. Click on that.
