Ron thats a GREAT POINT but I honestly think ....
The majority of those that inherit these models no nothing or almost nothing about them. They don't know if a model had or didn't have a rear view mirror, or if it had for didn't have white lettered tires, etc. Take a FM 55 Crown Vic. It has no drivers door mirror. The DM version DOES . say seller whom inherited the collection has both to sell and the DM model is missing the mirror. He/she might innocently not even notice that and say that its in perfect condition and is not missing anything. Innocent uninformed statement on their part. Many don't even know what rash is and won't notice that and say the model is PRISTINE. I do, however, see some sellers whom inherited collections make the following RESPECTABLE comment "Please examine the photos and look at the over all condition. These were my Late .... and I know little about them. What you see is what you get. Ill be happy to answer all questions and look over the model if you are looking for a specific issue/flaw/problem"
