Jean-Baptiste, a.k.a. "JB," bought this 1976 Ford Gran Torino Brougham on November 26, 2011. It was built in 1975 at the Ford plant in Lorain, Ohio where the Torinos used in the TV show were built. It has a 6.6L (402 ci) "big block" engine. JB, who lives in Belgium, is the third owner of this car. The original owner kept it until the year 2000.

The first photo, above, shows JB and his wife, Joan, waiting for a policeman friend of theirs to join them with his Mustang to go to a Sunday car show in Brussels. In the third photo, JB is holding a set of lights that the previous owner had mounted on the car's grille. JB thought they looked horrible and was happy to remove them :-)

JB's Torino was autographed by Paul Michael "Starsky" Glaser in April, 2011 at the "Festival du Film Policier" of Spa (Francorchamps) in Liège (Belgium). Visit the event's website to see more photos of Paul Michael Glaser's appearance there, and another photo of JB's Torino.

The last photo was taken outside the discotheque "Le Cactus" in Brussels. The discotheque was opened at a special time on a weekday morning for the anniversary of a popular Radio and TV host. JB drove her to the event with a co-host from the TV station and the car was featured on the TV show!

There are a few S&H Torinos in France, but this is the first to come to us from Belgium. Maybe someday I'll get to travel there to watch Le Tour de France and I'll get to see these great cars and meet their owners!
