Lost the whole post so here we go again!
 
Let's see if we can get this pinned to stay on top.
Stay on topic... no off topic banter.
 
Pics 72-76 with description/specs
 
I'll start...(AGAIN)
 
72 Gran Torino
302, 2V, C4, open "Baby" 9 inch(the look alike 9 but smaller)
88 Mustang GT Headers, JC Whitney Side Pipes
Stock interior, split bench, AM Radio, No A/C... EVERYTHING still works!
 
tires/rims are always changing for size and height comparisons...
See the OFFICIAL TIRE SIZE THREAD for all that talk
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
ps... did I ever say how much I LOVE THIS WEBSITE!?
You don't have to look for your pics again... they are all still hosted/stored just click and POOF they are posted back in a thread!
 
I ALSO just figured out that if you open 2 windows side by side, you can copy and past from one thread to another! POOF pics are posted again!

Thanks for starting the official picture thread (and posting my carThumbs Up). I'll still post some pics in my old thread as I dig them out, but those three give a very good "past to present" for this thread.Cool

Ok so here is my 75 with a stock 88 GT motor (for now), a C-6, and a 4.56 geared locker. I am just waiting on a belt, registration and exhaust to be rolling it down the road. I put the 302 that I already had into it so I could just cruise and show it for this year. I should hopefully be building a 460 soon to put in next winter. Smile 
Enjoy.....

 Question was asked... past or present?
 
Post ANY pics of 72-76 Torinos YOU personally owned or currently own.
Pics of ANY time you had it, first bought, updated pics, and/or current.
 
Let's just try to keep it factual, not what we want to do or are doing.
 
LOVE the pic of GTMan Smokin the tires!

Heres my 73.  I'll be doing a lot of work this summer on the body restoration.  Keep your eyes open to the forum for the pics of the progress.

some nice looking rides.I have to say wheels really make the car.Hubcaps just make it look like grandma's car but a nice set of rims and tires makes a big difference.Anyone wanna see a rotted GTS or formal roof that the roof is swiss cheese cause that is all I have to offer.The 73 GTS has 72 hood scoop thanks to Andy,but most of you have seen that car if not ask Andy to post some pics cause he still has my car.Now if I could only get him to finish the bodywork,LOL
