Marti reports

For two years the Eliminator roamed the streets looking for prey. Although you could get an engine available from Mercury in the Eliminator, the Cobra Jet 428 and Super Cobra Jet 428 were common under the hood. This was also the only Cougar to get the Boss 302. The Eliminator Registry is maintained by Dave Wyrwas.

Welcome. No discount's as far as I know. If you have a rare or unusual car, the Elite report is a good investment.

My Marti report was money well spent. I believe it's a fair price for what you get. You might not be alone in thinking its a lot of money. Kevin posted some of his thoughts about it in his blog section. I laughed while reading it but I have to agree with him. He's in business to make money. He must have had some tough coustomers the day he wrote it.

I'd never seen that post before but, as a small business owner, every word rang true. You wouldn't believe the things people can say with a straight face or the excuses they have for why someone else should eat the cost of their problem, whatever it may be. People who would be furious if their boss said, "We want you to work for $2.00 an hour because that's what we could get someone in India to do over the Internet" think nothing of walking into a store and telling the owner, "We think you should give us a deal because we could buy it cheaper over the Internet." We deal with shoplifters, check kiters, counterfeiters, and storytellers like you wouldn't believe. There's a cost to that. Kevin had it exactly right.

Thanks! It is good to be here at CCC! I've owned this car for 16 yrs and I can finally find out exactly what I got!
FYI The only reason I asked for a discount was because of the discount code box.

WOW!! Talk about sweating it... Finally received my Marti report! This '69 Eliminator, has been in our family for 45-ish years!! My oldest (late) brother bought this back in Late 1971. It was a yellow Eliminator... with a black vinyl top!!! And I saw somewhere, where NO Eliminators, came with vinyl tops!! And sooooo... I thought all these years, I've been maintaining a FRAUD!!! lol! Well my Marti report just came back and the color is now returning to my face!!! PHEW!! And YES!!! I'm doing a little dance!! THANK YOU Kevin Marti and Co.!!
