Better make sure it doesn't have  ducted hood, spoilers, & rally wheels. Then it WILL be ultra rare...Joe :)

I wonder how nice they will be to deal with when you tell them the car is not as they advertised and only worth about half of what they want.  ::)  That trim tag looks like it went through a meat grinder, how can it get that way? ???

It's called "aging" and it's what people do to make fake tags look old and authentic.

Well the guy who did this is not very good at "aging" things is he. It's not like these tags are fully exposed to be beat up like that. I could understand multiple coats of paint or sanding/sandblasting of firewall during restoration to make fake tag look original but this is like trying to recreate the Mona Lisa with wax crayons.

Yes, I would call it 'dumba$$' rather than 'aging'...    *L*
