Where it began: The first proposal for the project. Coke-bottling the body and so-on...
Golden E-Ticket - The colors are being laid out in final form... Here's the mighty Poteet/Rad Rides project Torino with the front end details in place. After a three-year festival of throwing some mean at the '69 with hefty Talladega and NASCAR themes, the light at the end draws nearer still...
Me and the Torino.
Hood Scoop - Quick shot of the original rendering, and the actual hood being fabricated. This is part of a custom 1969 Ford Torino I designed with, and currently under construction at Rad Rides by Troy. It's a NASCAR-influenced, modern street machine.

The first sketches hanging in the shop.
Look for this guy and the car in Furious 7.
Coming to Life - The Torino

The GPT Special. Proud to have worked with the talented crew at Rad Rides by Troy to bring this 1969 Ford Torino to life.
Redesigned the car to have better proportions and fit the NASCAR theme. Shortened wheel base, widened fenders at all four corners, one-off grille and tail panel/tail lamps, fully fabricated chassis and interior.
Car has won the Goodguys Street Machine of the Year, The Barrett-Jackson Cup, The Mothers Shine Award at the 2013 SEMA Show, and many more "Best-Of" awards.
Look for it in the new Furious 7 movie, too!
