The split bench I pulled out. Nice seat but didn't give you much leg room

The car is a sweet ride for sure and your son is already a gearhead, his tools of choice are hammersThumbs Up. The garage is too sanitary Wink, you need some more crap in there covering the walls and floor making it hard to walk around and/or finding tools LOL.  You did yourself right with the choice of paint color, always nice to see another top quality Torino.

Yeah, It's a Hybrid...It burns gas and tires.

No matter how good she looks, somebody, somewhere, is tired of her sh*t.

From what I understand you can't go wrong with those 393 strokers. Max knows his stuff.

That is a beautiful car.

I have a set of those same seats in maroon. They do sit very well, but you are correct about legroom.

Tighten it down until it snaps and then back it off a half turn!
