"I LOVE MY CAR BECAUSE ... she's a beauty! Her name is Tori. The first time I saw her, it was love at first sight. I am the lucky third owner. I've owned a few muscle cars, but this Torino GT is my favorite. I have great appreciation for the muscle car era and 1970 was the best year. Wherever I drive this car, I always get the thumbs-up."
