    First, I'd like to introduce myself to those who don't know me. My name is
    Mike McPhillips and have been a member of many Ford/Torino groups the last 6
    years. I own a 1972 Gran Torino Sport with a Q code engine (351CJ) and a 4
    speed. I have decided I'd like to track what of these are left in existence
    today, along with current locations and original sales locations and any
    other data I can collect. This registry is in no way, shape or form meant
    to out do any other existing Torino registries, but to zero in on the 1972 &
    1973 Q code, 4 speed Gran Torino and Ranchero's ONLY. If you own one of
    these vehicles, or know the whereabouts of one, I would appreciate it if you
    could send me the VIN and door tag data along with any other information.
    ALL information provided (VIN #, owners name) WILL BE KEPT CONFIDENTIAL.
    I'm sure there will be a few bumps along the way and hopefully things will
    get better as this thing gets moving. I am by no means an expert. I just
    own one of these fine rides and want to track how many are left. Any help
    with numbers is greatly appreciated. Even if its a vehicle that's been or
    being parted out, in the junkyard, buried in the woods or swamp.
    Sincerely,
    Mike McPhillips
    AKA "McFord"
