My wife inherited a '73 Gran Torino Sport from her father.  We just got it up and running this past weekend.  Getting it detailed and cleaned up a little bit so we can enjoy driving it for a little while before the snow flies.  Still a few electrical gremlins to work out with the turn signals but so far so good on most things.  I will post pics once I am able.
