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.

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.
