I spent a good part of my youth running around with my brother in his Torino Cobra. We had a lot of good times in that car. From very first time we went and got it up in Polk City, Iowa and trailered it home with the blown up engine in pieces in the trunk it was a fun car. We stopped for gas and somebody asked us if we drag raced that car. It looked mean but no engine. My brother put a 289 in it while he built an engine for it, the 289 was stock except for a big cam. It sounded mean as heck idling around town, we wouldn't pop the hood for anyone, nobody around home wanted to mess with that mean sounding car, that poor 289 would hardly spin the tires. It was quite a different story when the correct engine was installed, it wasn't a wild build but it wasn't stock. Boy did we ever have a good time in it. My brother plans on getting it back up and running but it might have to wait until he retires.
We watched this Torino Cobra sell Saturday. It brought back a lot of good memories.
