I have a 1971 Ford Torino. It was my mothers car. She purchased it new and drove it until he had to quit driving in about 1990. I put it in my warehouse and it has not moved since. I should have done something with it before now but I hated to get rid of my mothers car. I really don't want to sell it for parts but hope there is a market for someone who would like to restore it. I made contact with a man by the name of Dan Horine that lived in Portland, Oregon. He was a member of a Torino club and we had a long and interesting conversation. I tried to call him but the number did not work. Assume he had passed away since our conversation was many years ago. Can anyone help me make contact with an active Torino club that might be able to help me. Thanks. Bud Bulloch  Monticello, Arkansas

I just recently purchased a 73 GTS from Cool Classic Rides in Redmond Oregon. Kelly and Ross are very knowledgeable and they buy and sell alot of Torino's. They are both great guys to deal with and they may be able to point you in the right direction of what to do with the car. I am also new here so it's just my opinion and surely someone will disagree with me. Couldn't hurt to talk to them though,won't cost you anything to ask questions.

Yes it is... according to the website. I've never been to Oregon, but it's definitely on the bucket list.
