This is our family treasure, 1971 Ford Torino 500
The Torino was bought new in Miami Florida, by my wife's Father & Mother. When I met my wife in 1... Show more989 my future Mother-in-law was driving the car as a daily driver.
It seemed like from the first time I saw the car we were destined to be together. My wife's mother was getting up in years, but she still loved the Torino. When we would visit her I would take the Torino out for a drive, to make sure everything was O.K. She knew that I liked the Torino & would always take good care of it. When my Mother-in-law passed away
my wife & I took possession of the car.
We started with wheels & tires first. The car was always under a carport, so I thought new window seals would take care of a little water in the floors (both sides) didn't work!!! So we
sealed the windshield didn't work!!! We had rust & the rest is history.
With the help of my stepson, my wife & 3 years of work we have a
