$20,000 OBO (I did NOT buy it for this lol)The owner said he put an extra “0” in the price to keep anyone away that’s not remotely interested

These are pics that are of my Montego GT taken late July 2013

It is all complete and completely original including the paint.


The hood was already removed when we realized that we didn’t get any good before pictures.
