After attending the Bristol show with a mustang, I realized how much I missed owning a junky a$$ Gran Torino named Mad Max. Time for a sequel The Road Warrior. To find A project, I traveled to the graveyard where Multiple Torinos wait silently to be sawzalled to death located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I was able to escape with one on July 17 2012. Then began the goal of having it ready for the 2.5 show in Memphis on Sept. 28 2012. Whew!

Old tank out it was junk from sitting for so long. No big loss car is being upgraded to side fill tank. No more gas spilling on take off or aching back from filling up.

Ok parts needed for side fill tank conversion. Remove these parts from any side fill mid side ford. Mine came from 1978 Mercury Cougar. Tank is new from Summit Racing.
