Cindy, what can I say?  You car and description are at the least beautiful!  I think that this kind of Torino is so very special because of what you have made of it.  It is distinctly yours, and has that very personal touch which I love so much.  I love the window etching, it is so cool!  Thanks for taking the time to mail me this and to share it with everyone else.
