Hi. I haven´t been very active on this forum lately. Same thing with my Gran Torino project. Well, it´s drivable, still in need for a new paint job, and the C6 prepped.
 
Here´s the Gran Torino in the garage, which it shares with ´69 Fury convertible, ´58 Pontiac chieftain, ´71 Chrysler Newport 4d, ´98 Vette and ´71 VW bus (not my cars).

Thanks! Someone of the previous owners took off the bumper guards.  I think it doesn´t matter if you have the guards or not in a case of crash, the front bumpers of these ´73s (and ´74>up)are very sturdy. Sure the guards will handle the smaller bumps, and save the crome. Your bumper seems to have very nice crome. I like the white colour of your car!

Attended a car show on Saturday..........ran great with the 5 speed, until the clutch cable failed due to heat soak.......to be fixed very shortly!

Anyway, what do you think (not quite finished)?

Also just remembered, the tires with the white line on them were circa 1978, they all blew up on me over the course of three months on the highway, talk about tons of fun blowing tires on the interstate at like 85 mph, 2.5 tons of directionless american steel to be exact lol
