Thanks Johnny,
Wasn't sure if I have to be a paid member. Is there paid membership? Can't seem to find the right spot to ask.

This was in 1981 after a fresh rebuild in the road outside my front door. Hood had the paint melted off after the original owner decided to run it without the air cleaner on and an ignition problem.Flat black krylon, 2 cans.

Yeah, I am definitely leaning towards the blue.  My first car was a 64 Falcon I had repainted an almost identical blue as the Torino, really liked that color.  (Picture is not my car but one I found on the web, only difference is mine had Magnum 500's on it)

1973gts ,  i'm thinking Fargo ?  I bought my first 73 blue on blue N code gts  from  the original owner who also had started work at he local upstart police department , He eventually made chief . and it helped  the few times I was pulled over they would say " hey is this the chief's old car " The state Police who worked the outlining towns still  ticketed me. It was all about smoke and speed back then . I  like the blue on blue.  Maine State Police cars are Blue , I thought it was a cop thing.  I say keep it the Original Color . Nice Car

Apparently it's not just the long arm of the law, it's the long leg as well.
The above post should be read in a "Grumpy Old Man" voice.

Yeah, not really the best fashion statement.  If I remember right I had just gotten hired on full time and had been issued the uniform with the blouse coat and my dad wanted a picture of me by my car.  For some reason the shoes must have been an afterthought.

I am leaning towards keeping it the original blue, still not positive yet.  I really liked the white on my first one but the longer I've had the present car the more I like the blue.  Ref the uniform I think the hat was the only part of the uniform that was new and the correct size, the rest was whatever was close.  All in all it was a great department to work for and I wouldn't have traded for any other career, lots of good memories and friends.

Nice old picture! Funny how things were back then with handed down uniforms and such. At least the hat fit! :)
Are you going to paint your now car like your original?

Thought I would post a few pics of my vehicles.  The first pic is from 1973 shortly after I got hired on at our local Sheriffs Department, money was a little tight for the department back then, we were given whatever was available for uniforms (notice the pant length, nice ankles, eh?).  That is about the only pic I have of that car i'm afraid.  The next ones are my current Torino which is presently completely torn apart.  I am hoping to have it on the road by mid-late summer but will have to see how it goes.

Is the paint job on your torino an original paint job? I just bought an exact match to yours this summer, my dream car.
