My dad had Toronados all through my formative high school years the late 60's. They all had the optional 455 H.O. motor and a really cool speedo unit that scrolled the numbers. Needless to say the idea was to see how fast you could go without moving. Between eighty and ninety was a pretty good number without brake torqueing. The front tires never had a chance. When I would take it "scooping" (a weekend diversion for kids with cars) it was always a hit with the front wheels smoking until you couldn't see the car and then accellerating out of the cloud. This thread brings back fond memories.
