This is a pic of a torino wagon (71?)that was given to me by our local ford dealer to run in a local area demo derby.I placed 3rd out of 25 cars.pic taken in 78' when I was 15yrs old.At 21 I went to work at that dealership,I worked there for 25yrs.
This pic taken in 82' is of my old 74 torino.The cougar in the background belonged to a girl that I went to HS with,Her father still owns the car.The car in front of my torino is a 78 nova,belonged to a friend.

The Truxmore car has been restored (or recreated - not sure which).  It sees the track in vintage racing in Europe.

If anyone is interested, here is a youtube link showing the Truxmore car at the 2012 LeMans Classic.  The video was done by the shop that did the restoration and has some cool old stills of the original car back in '76.
