Hello everyone, I guess I jumped the gun yesterday and should have introduced myself first.
I am from Ontario Canada and presently do not own A ford product, however I am desperately
trying to find a nice Torino GT. I am retired with lots of time on my hands to hunt one down...lol
I ride a Goldwing to Auctions all over the country when my wife allows.Wink I have classic Honda's
I have restored and I also have a (please don't hate me) 1966 Olds Toronado with 66,000 original miles and panels etc. Motor rebuilt to factory specs and repainted in the original color. Virtually no rust example.

I have a love for all Muscle cars and bikes and have no preference to name brand if the right vehicle
presents itself. This is what I love to do to stay out from under my wife's feet and see the country
back roads. I hope the addition of this forum will further my  knowledge and widen my friendships.

This is a short video of my Toro if you would like to view it.......Cougla

welcome and awesome Toronado. My first car was a 67 cutlass ragtop, had a 455 in it out of a 68/69 olds in it with a bad bearin knock. So I started the search and lo and behold I found a very rusty 66 Toronado wit ha sweet runnin 425 in it. so i swapped that in place of the 455. even with the 2.73 gears and powerglide, that 425 would RUN! I just recently sold the dual snorkel air cleaner off that Toronado.

A big Welcome to the Forum!  No worries about jumping the gun, but we encourage all new members to introduce themselves at some point.  I think we all enjoy hearing about others cars and back stories.
 
Your Toronado is awesome!  The 1966 is my all time favourite Olds Toronado.  Again, very very nice car. Feel free to share some more pics or information.

Thanks for the warm welcomes. I have looked over some of your rides and I gotta tell ya, I sure am 
envious of the collections you guys have. I like Torinos from 1968 to 1972 Clint Eastwood and I am looking forward to owing one of these as soon as I can find one for my price point and color combo.
Ride on !!!!
