    Lol, just thought I'd share the newest change to "Nellie". I really liked the way the other wheels looked, but they were just too small for this big of a car. So...

    Fills up the wheel wells much better! :supergrin:

    The Mustang center caps are temporary, my boss has a set of NOS Mag500 Fairlane caps he's trading me for a set of trim rings.

    I'm thinking paint or AC is next on the to-do list.

    Cool!
    I always like the formal roof over the fastback.

    The 1970 version of that, renamed as the Torino, was my first car. 429, 4 spd w/Hurst shifter - had to give it up in the first round of oil embargos because Premium became harder to find and finance. Probably the only car I ever had that I truly regret not having right now...

    The Torino existed in 1968 as an upscale version of the Fairlane and in 1970, the Fairlane name was dropped and all such cars were called Torinos...

    I've owned a `69, `70, and a `72. As well as a `69 and `72 Ranchero.

    I sold my last and most beautiful 1970 Torino GT SportsRoof with the 351c 4V in 1993 to pay for my wedding...:crying:

    I will own another one someday... My kids are off to college and out of the house next year and I plan on finding a shell to build into a street custom...

    Bandwidth? I use Imageshack and it has unlimited bandwidth. Photobucket limits bandwidth?

    Wanna see her pic, upload it again!

    I too preferr the '70-'71 Torino the best.

    Actually I like the '70-'71 Mercury Cyclone the best. I know where there's a '70-'71 Montego that's been sitting for at lest 10 years and I cannot get the owner to sell. It all there, just broke down and would make a great Cyclone GT or Spoiler clone.

    Ticks me off every time I drive by it. Old guy "claims" he's going to restore it someday. Sad part is that he lives in a single wide trailer w/out a shop, tools, skills or money to restore the car. Plus he's about 70yo and is in poor health.

    Do they allow you to protect the copyrights to your images by making your albums private?

    An old friend of mine got married in 1960. He said he had a choice of getting married or buying a nearly-new 1957 Thunderbird. He's STILL kicking his own butt!
