Well, not this particular car but so similar. Showed the pic to my wife and she said "is that ours".

Ours was a 1971 Formula 400 finished in the same Canyon Copper. This car has the Trans Am Spoiler moulded in on the front ours just had the Trans Am rear spoiler. The car was quick, handled almost as good as the Corvette. Sold it to buy the home we have now.

This one is a beauty.

I had a 1966 Comet Caliente convertible in 1974 and a 1972 Ranchero GT (428) in 1976 in my late teens (I worked in an autobody shop and the boss would fix cars and sell them). Sold the Comet to get the Ranchero. Sold the Ranchero to go to post secondary school. Wish I could have held onto them.

Odd you sold that car to buy your house Murray, I sold my 66 Chevelle 396 4-spd car to buy our house. I miss that car, but enjoy having a garage for my Corvette.
