    Marine Sgt. Edwrad Flak II thought his 1994 Mustang GT was just going into the shop for a few minor repairs.

    After he returned from Afghanistan during the weekend, Flak was surprised Monday when the garage door was lifted on the car. It sported a new body kit, sound system and paint job.

    The yellow ribbon is not standard.
    The car was unveiled at Bird Family Tire & Auto in Temecula.

    Flak served three tours overseas. His wife planned the automotive makeover, which was revealed in front of family and friends.
