A few years ago they printed a great article by Bill Haig debunking 
the red 70 Daytona.   I have seen MCG admit mistakes before,  but this
is big hood-wink,, it'll be interesting to see how they handle this.

The bit about Mexico is lame.  People know so little about exports
that when someone who can make themselves sound authorative, say a car is 
an export,  readers/onlooked will immediately say "oh, that explains it".

The complete BS part of an Mexico story is that in 1961,  Automex 
(Chrysler's agent in Mexico at the time) sold *both* Plymouth's 
*and* Dodge's!!!
