Story says that this car was a mint 1969 Mach 1 that was damaged by a tornado. Landed several miles from where it was parked. Unbelievable.

Sorry guys. The power went out at the house today and downed my server. You should be able to see the pic now.

Ray, I am aware that 70's were the only year of the twister specials, but this is an exception.

Guys, this has nothing to do with the 70 Twister Special, but more the fact that a 69 Mach got caught up in a real twister . . a tornado and wound up across town. This car was not a badged Twister Special, but a true Twister Mach 1, or whats probably left of it.

Just some permission issues on some images or folders on his home web server.

Surpised there wasn't something like that in Oklahoma.. Twister Alley.

Maybe with all the Global Warming the twisters have moved elsewhere.

BTW - Very nicely document build on the web site.

Not sure what is going on with that image. It does not have any permission issues. I renamed it and scaled it down. Maybe that will help.
