"...I really dig the big cars. It's about time someone had the cojones to feature them!" -Daniel Benoit

Your opening paragraph described me to a "T" as a '69 Camaro antagonist. Of course, there's nothing wrong with a '69 Camaro-there's almost no way to screw one up. The only problem with the '69 Camaro is they ruin cruise-ins and car shows-they're a dime a dozen! Point is, if I could get someone to stop at a car show and say, "that's awesome-what is it?" to a '73 El Camino ... I think that builder has a ton more talent than most of what you see at car shows. And even at that, I know the masses don't want to get caught saying a '73 El Camino is "cool".

Thanks for the spread on the '72 Gran Torino Sport. I've owned a '72 since 1991, and I rarely ever see one on the pages of magazines. I (as well as many other '72-plus Torino owners) welcome the publicity, and hope this will create a growth in aftermarket goodies for our often-forgotten rides. Keep up the great work, even if you have to throw a "Slowmaro" on the cover to peddle it. Todd Green Alabaster, Alabama
