Yes they are! They were considered "midsize" in their day though!

Comapared to what is considered mid-sized today, these Torinos, Cougars and everything else built on that 72-79 platform are yachts. I get offers for boat slips from harbor pilots to park the Ranchero.

i don't really think they are THAT big, just there is alot of metal to strip down

everyone else keeps mentioning things about going on fishing trips, and waterskiing when i mention my car though....must smell like the ocean or something
