My Car Story with Lou Costabile 1970 Ford Torino SCJ (Super Cobra Jet) 429
On "My Car Story" we're in Rosemont IL at the Muscle Car and Corvette
Nationals on 11-24-13.
We're looking at a 1970 Ford Torino SCJ (Super Cobra Jet) 429.
According to the Owner Mr. Sandy Hardiman his car had 2 of his friends as
restorers and it took 2 1/2 years to restore.
Nice to have friends with skill sets like this!
