Here's his photo page:

What impresses me is that he's put it together for about the price of a NOS '70 Mustang rear quarter.

Mike it looks GREAT,I'm not a big fan of vinyl tops.But seeing your before and after pictures.I think it looks way better with the black top.
The inside looks real good too.Now how about some motor pictures.
Whats next for your Torino,which I feel is one of the most over looked Fords.

Just saw his before. Awesome results. My neighbours kid has a 72 as well. I snapped some of his car the other day. Here's a link of his car. It took him 7 years to get it to look like this, it is nice.

Thanks everyone! Scoop,bumper to bumper,2800. My next project will be 4 wheel brakes,and the front end. I need some strut bushings. Also rear springs. This thing wallows bad.

That 4V Cleveland still has a tip in problem every so often. I'm almost there. I think if I rebuild the Holley,and toss the Edeljunk I'll be in business. I should have the gas tank sealed too. If that doesn't do it,I'll turn it into a 7k grenade,and build up a big block.

I love showing hotrod ricers what second gear is all about.

Oh,and last thing is to find them damned near to impossible to find wheelwell trim moldings.

Looking good Mike. I had doubts about the vinyl roof as I'm not a big fan of them, but it looks good. You only have $2800 in the car? I wish that's all I had into my truck and it's nowhere near as nice. What's your secret?

SCOOP


Scoop: You need to start a new trend. A vinyl scoop! You'll have to get a Cadillac Cpe de Ville VTop, cut it down A LITTLE and it'll be a perfect fit AND trend setter.

Mike, looking gooooooood!
I truly think the top finishes the car
And that color is fabulous, really nice contrast between the vinyl top and the car

Definitely a *rightclick and save* pic(s) there!

The pics don't really do the car justice. The paint has orange metalflake that really comes out in the sun, but it looks chestnut on overcast days. Hard to describe, but it looks really neat in person.
