70 Torino Calypso with white guts and a shaker.  Great cruiser and addition to the herd.

Looks great - but could use an attitude or should I say altitude adjustment.

Great color scheme.  It induces instant flashback to those times for me as a kid.
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

BEAUTIFUL
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs.It's jolted by every pebble on the road
