A red Ford

Illustration for article titled A red Ford

In the 70's, when you hear of a “Ford”, you’d seldom think of it as a sports car. Maybe a sedan or a muscle car would come to mind? But then a hit TV show used a Gran Torino....... lifted it up, stuck rear wide tires on it, beefed up the engine and transmission, and put a white racing stripe on it. You’d see it doing ‘skids’ (drifting was a term that was not used back then), jumps, and chase down bad guys like it was a supercar. :D Much of it was special effects , of course, done by professional stunt drivers and an effects crew. But it catapulted a seemingly ordinary Ford into stardom.
