Hey everyone, my name is Tim! I own a jet black '70 Torino GT with a 351C that I've been fixing up since high school. Biggest problem has been finding wiper arms, they are nonexistant for a 70! Other than that I'm in the GA Air National Guard and i collect old guns!happy to be here as I love and appreciate Torinos as much as I'm sure yall do!

She was originally a 350M but when the original owner restored her he threw in a 351C. The owner had her from high school up until he sold it to us. He told us about all the prom dates and all he went on in her then garaged her for the longest.The owner died from cancer not long after we got it. In hindsight, high school me should have asked more about it.

The Torino looks great! Sometimes photos from phones don't come through rotated correctly. Usually you have to use a computer to rotate them straight. I will usually fix them when I have time, but looks like Carlos beat me to it.
