    A54A089F-87FB-42B7-BBAC-712A5A8FDCB1.jpeg Made it back to the GCCA today. I missed the last one in July as I was busy testing FURYIOUS. Had a blast. Saw some cars I though were bargains & some I think brought too much. I’ll be posting some pics. About 400 cars but I only got 40 or so. Hope you guys enjoy. Yep that’s me next to the Cuda

    9808F2FD-BD5E-4618-935F-CDF475FA49C6.jpeg Never in my life have I seen fender skirts on a 68 Torino. The paper work said this was an unrestored original car. 428 engine. Torn seats & some rust. It appears it had been pulled from the sale & was sitting out back or it may have sold on Friday & the new owner pulled it around outside. Interesting car

    Neither have I. And they DON'T at all look good, in my opinion. They just don't belong on a car like that. Takes away from the "musclecar" vibe. Otherwise it's a beautiful car though

    Yea I looked at the paint close. Well done. Not over the top. Just what you would want a car like this to look like.
