The only Polar Lights kits I have are the stock car kits that they put out in the early part of 2000. The Torino has that strange up-sweep on the front fenders, hot water and a lot of patients to get it down and looking right.
Back when I was a teenager, my folks had the same LTD wagon. That thing was BADASS, and it was the best car for going to the drive-in with the girlfriend. Lots of space in the back with the rear seats down.
It's always sad to hear when a LHS shop closes it's doors. I'm lucky to have 4 LHS's with-in an hours drive of my door. We in Ontario don't have the big box hobby stores like you guys in the states do. And Wal-Mart in Canada still don't sell model kits like they use to so I support my LHS.
