It’s very simple. I watched the movie, “Gran Torino”, and after wiping away a few
tears at the end, I went online to find my favorite 70’s muscle car on the market.
I found this beauty and I have loved it ever since. I have always loved cars like
this, but I could never get up the nerve to buy one. However, the movie put me over
the edge. I was tired of driving my 1993 Ford Escort with a 1.8L, V4 engine. Life
is too short to drive a car like that, and it was time to get a car that could move.
There were two things I was looking for: an awesome body that was fully restored,
and driving performance and handling. I didn’t want a really awesome-looking car
that just sat in the driveway and just clanked across town. This car was the perfect
combination: an almost flawless body matched with a V8, fully restored 350 engine
with less than 10,000 miles on it that roars to life when I inject a little unleaded
gas into its veins.
There are so many muscle cars out there that list the 9000 repairs they did on it,
but they still don’t start or they don’t have the horses that the engine claims because
it just can’t perform. I don’t have a list of 9000 things I have done to this car
because there was no need to change anything. It is a smooth ride, and it delivers
as promised. Mr. Kowalski, as my car is affectionately named, purrs when he is running
and roars when he is encouraged. Matched with the beautiful body, and you will understand
why I would spend the time to make a website when selling this car. I love just
writing about this car, because any time spent with Mr. Kowalski is time well spent.
"I love this car. We were going to name the movie ‘Chevy Malibu’ instead of ‘Gran
Torino’, but due to the recent downturn in the economy, we couldn’t afford a Malibu.
It is a shame."
- Clint Eastwood
WHY I MADE THIS WEBSITE
All the websites online where you sell a car do not allow for enough information.
They charge you $10.00 just to upload a few photos. I want to give you all the information
you need, and it is actually cheaper for me to just make a website and give you all
the details here. The more information you have, the better you can feel about your
buying decision, so that’s the ultimate reason why I made this website.
Have a look around, and contact me if you have any questions.
