Hey folks I am new to the forum. My first car when I was 15 was a 73 green 2 door base Torino. 351 Cleveland automatic. She treated me well and finally went away. My second when I turned 19 and had some jingle in my pocket was a 1970 Torino Cobra 429 SCJ 4 speed Hurst.....you know the rest. That car sat under a cover for a few years, then went into a storage facility where it has been nearly 30 years.
Back then I had no idea it was special, it just had nice lines. Recently I have gotten back to thinking about it so I signed up to talk to folks that know the car.

Welcome!
The above post should be read in a "Grumpy Old Man" voice.
