1968 Torino GT
"Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future." -Oscar Wilde
Just yesterday I had the pleasure of a momentary jump back into my past. As I was driving back from the office, there in a parking lot was a 1968 Ford Torino GT. It was very much like the one I owned in high school, so stop to look and admire it became a step back in time to 1977. The sleek lines of the car covered the 325-hp/390-cid engine just waiting underneath the hood, longing to roar down the road.
A four-speed manual transmission with a stick shift waiting for the driver to put it into action. Yes, I had a 1968 Ford Torino GT in high school. No it certainly was not as fast as other muscle cars in its era, but it did make for a few fun rides down the flat highways near Cedar Bluffs, Nebraska.
Every now and then it can be good to look backwards into the past. It reminds us of where we were and helps us rediscover how we got to where we are today. Stay inspired my friends and enjoy the ride!
