    C'mon TL! Thought you had higher standards?!

    That car has lived a hard life and would be perfectly fine on the streets if the price was where it should be, $2,500. Looks to have been hit on the front right and repaired due to the panel gap. Not to mention the lines out back don't line up right either. Interior looks faded & sad so it's probably sat outside and someone gave it a cosmetic refresh. Engine was also painted red. Don't know what that means other than it's probably been out & redneck Rick'em'd. No thanks.

    The Marti will give you pretty much the same in terms of the option list as the Ford one (do they still offer that??) but the Ford one won't give the production data. I have one for the Mark VII around somewhere. Tells me what it came with, and what date it was made. They used to offer it for free but its been a bunch of years now.

    I keep thinking of getting a Marti for the Conti just for some hard data on how many exist with that engine.

    Do eeet. I have one for the Town Car. Pretty neat. Did not know mine was a custom ordered car or that it is 1/43 ordered with that color combo & top. I have yet to see another '88 or even '85-'89 that is black with tan (sandalwood?) interior.

    what I mean is it won't give you X number of cars total, Y with that option, Z with that option, etc, etc, etc to tell you that you have one of 17 cars ever made with that specific combination of stuff. Its just production totals for the year and model.
