I say keep the vinyl roof but lose the big brougham emblem, lose the wide mouldin and add a laser stripe in the yeller to brown fade.

Still working on getting a bumper donor from a wrecking yard. They were closed last Monday, so it'll have to wait until Saturday.
 
Meanwhile...Does anyone have a set of Drip Rails with the termination point just behind the rear window? If I go through with this and get rid of the vinyl top, I'll need them. I've located some but they are asking a lot for them.

I'll look in my stash of trim parts from my parts car.

Did anyone else spot the Torino coupe on top of the rust pile in the background by the word "both"?

I see it now. Last time I was out there, there were a lot of Torinos of different types. Most were picked over or stacked. I'll take some pictures when I go this Saturday. 

I went out a couple of years ago to see if my 1st Torino somehow made it out there. I've tried to track it down before. Fortunately I didn't see anything that could have been it.
