*NONE* of these photos are mine unless stated

*Pardon any dead pictures as this thread has aged. I'm working on fixing it.


I was viewing a thread full of old photos on the Maverick forum. I saw a few Torinos in the photos so I thought I would share them here. There should be more to come.

Walt, those are priceless pictures! I love the Squire pic (obviously), the Valley Ford pic (pure muscle), and the rows of Torinos waiting for delivery. Time captured in film is just great.

That is very cool.

I had to laugh at the Winn Dixie picture. Probably the only picture in existence with 2 Vega wagons parked together feeding on each other's rust, LOL.

My 76 Torino. 1989 at a rest top in either NC or GA on the way to Florida for my first major road trip.

I bought the car the week before the trip off the used car lot at work. It still had the window sticker in the right rear window. I bought it for $250, installed front brake hoses, a right front tire, and loaded it for the trip. That car sucked down 2 quarts of oil for every tank of gas on the highway but the "old man cloaking device" worked like a champ.

The first few came from a FB page owned by one of the Maverick guys. Then some came from a thread on the maverick forum. After that I started going deep into the internet.
