I owned a 72 Grand torino that I got for free from a guy on a car lot that felt bad for me :( (long story)
The entire car was primer red, which I painted flat black with a brush, YES a brush!! I believe it had a 400ci 2 barrel carb that did okay for its size.
I realized soon after I got it why it was free
I did a brake stand (thats what you did back in the day when you were young and had a car) and as I sat there thinking I was cool, the cabin filled up with smoke
I had to pull over and get out of the car. I was gagging on the smoke from burning the tires. I popped the trunk and I saw pretty much most of the ground beneath it. LOL both rear wheel wells were rotted, heck beyond rotted. They werent there!!
I got caught driving it unregistered and attaching plates and it was towed. I had to walk home and the next day I got the car out and junked it. End of story
