Do you guys remember this 72 when it was for sale before, but looked a little different? 

Looks like the new owner added the stripe and upgraded the wheels as well.

Yes, I remember this car.  It looks better with a stripe and the new wheels.  His price seems a bit lofty though.

It is great to see more exposure for the 72 Torino, but the article is not that well written and has numerous errors. I also think this Torino is way overpriced for what it is. It seems the peanut gallery has the usual contrast of those liking these Torinos and those that rag on them. Most of them don't seem to have a hot clue about these cars.

I remember seeing the car for sale here in Texas, but I can't remember if it was around the Houston area or the Austin area.

I want to say he was the one that actually built the car by shaving door handles and upgrading the interior, etc, etc.
