About “torofast”

This is a car my dad picked up from a friend. It sat in his back yard for 10 years and he was tired of looking at it and not being able to do anything with it. So he picked it up of him for $900

About “Sunny”

(DISCLAIMER! This is NOT the actual car. I don't have any pictures of it anymore. I found this one on line)

This was my first car. My Grandmother bought it new on New Years Eve 1964, and it was she that named it "Sunny" My dad spent most of the following weekend installing those knobbly clear plastic seat covers and seat belts in the car for her. She was a simple woman with simple tastes, so she didn't want or need anything fancy. My dad talked her into getting a few dealer-installed options just for safety's sake, like a driver's side rear-view mirror, a day-night mirror inside, two-speed wipers with a windshield washer, back-up lights, and a heater. That's right, folks - all of that was optional! It didn't have a radio. The only options on the car from the factory were the 194cid inline-6 and, believe it or not, a grille guard on the front bumper!

I never got any "Official" numbers on the car. It was kinda slow, but it was quicker than my brother's 289/2-barrel/automatic '68 Mustang, which I proved to him several times!
