No secret about the ugly seats or destroyed dash or the double ugly wheels. Why in God's green earth would anyone do this to a Boss9. Well, we missed the end of the world anyway. Merry Christmas.

Marti is now breaking down cars by DSO and Dealership to make them "One of One"? 

Did you notice the DSO and dealership on the window sticker and on the Marti Report aren't the same?  Do you think maybe it was a dealer to dealer transfer?

And, the dealers are in different states!

Interesting. Dealer to dealer trades and transfers aren't that uncommon. In fcat my black car was delivered to one dealer and sold through another.

Not just different states, but different DSO's (72 = San Jose, 74 = Seattle).

As to Kevin Marti utilizing the DSO and Dealer's to get Boss 9's down to 1 of's, it's because the vast majority of them other than color combinations were optioned exactly the same.

 I must admit I'm in no hurry to show pictures of our 70 grabber blue car and what I did to it in the early 80's.  Nor would I want to show those pics with the cars VIN or KK number,  Kinda like those topless pictures of our spouses from the college days, it would taint it / her forever. ::)

I think it needs a bushel basket of Grover Clevelands thrown at it. I need those seats for my cushy deer blind.

I remember about 10 years ago a 70 Boss 429 grabber (can't remember if it was green or orange now) just east of Dearborn that came in from Florida.  A local wrench was putting in a new engine for a customer.  From what I saw the wrench was pulling out the original parts and putting in "stuff" left and right and the owner didn't realize how much the original parts were worth.

Hope the owner got to keep the original parts

 I think its cool looking, minus the paint matched bumpers, front spoiler and seat choice. Also, one car I would not want to pull up to, at a street light. I bet that sucker screams!

The cars are great, but the people are even better
