....coming home from work this morning, took some back roads because of a small snowstorm. Almost got blasted by a snowplow cause I stopped in the middle of the road because of a sighting! My dream car, a 72 Torino!!! Sitting at the end of a long rural driveway in the woods by the road. Looked to be fair condition, but will be investigating further. I will update soon when I go knocking. Any guesses? Will it be a Q-code?? 302?? or maybe a 429??

The odds are with the 302, but there's nothing wrong with that.

Daggum snow wouldn't let up, didnt get back by today. The place it is sitting I think it may be for sale, it has not been there before. Someday when I have the cash, I will buy a nice Q-code driver. But this one looks like it may be perfect for a NASCAR clone as well. Thats what I've wanted to do with one that wasn't a restoration candidate. No stickers or decals though, just the colors, tires/wheels and the stance.

AAArgh! Sheet metal is a rusted mess, motor and trans long gone. About the only thing good is hood and deck lid, and the bumpers are in really nice shape. Nobody home when I looked. Might see how much just because of the good bumpers. Chrome was even nice. Now I have to go dig into the 72 Montego lead.
