Ladies and Gentlemen Start Your Engines!

The 6th Annual Pinto Stampede celebrates the 45th Anniversary of our favorite little pony with another exciting drive and destination.

Be sure to join us for the 2016 Pinto Stampede.

Contact : Norm Bagi at bosspinto@pintostampede.com

This Years Theme : " The Blue Ridge to the Blue Oval "

We will be driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, America's favorite drive. A beautiful and scenic drive on up to the Ford Nationals at Carlisle PA where we will celebrate the 45th anniversary of the Pinto.

On June 1st we will start in Little Switzerland, North Carolina which sits on the Blue Ridge Parkway at the top of the Diamond back (different road, route 226A) Some of us may run the Diamond Back on Tuesday afternoon or as they come in, this is a steep and winding road, not for every Pinto.

Day 1: On Wednesday we will leave Little Switzerland and travel the Blue Ridge Parkway, we will stop for the evening about 3/4 of the way up to Roanoke. We will make stops along the way, photo opportunities, gas, food, etc.

Day 2: On Thursday we will head up the remaining part of the Blue Ridge Parkway through Roanoke and up Interstate 81 where we will bed down for the night. Of course this day too will have stops and sites along the way.

Day 3: On Friday we will make the final run up to Carlisle PA and the Ford Nationals, we may meet up with other Pinto drivers outside of the event fairgrounds and ride in together.

The remaining event for the weekend brings the Pinto Stampede back to the Carlisle Ford Nationals, the largest all Ford car show of the year.

I can't get my passenger door to close all the way. It latchs but not tight. The striker has a washer wedged behind it. Not sure why. All help is appreciated.
Hi all,

I'm a writer/editor for Car and Driver magazine. I'll be in Hartford, Connecticut, the week of February 22 for a story, and I'd like to line up a nice, original Pinto to drive for it. Body style doesn't matter. Anybody interested in volunteering their car? If you're wary of letting someone else behind the wheel, I won't need to drive it a great dist

06 Feb 2016 - V6 Fan Pulley A/C car

I am looking for the Fan pulley for a V6 with air. I put air on my car and learned that the Pulley is smaller, for more coolant circulation. Mine is the larger non a/c pulley. If any one has one let me know.
I hope this is the correct forum for this.  A person over on TurboFord.org (boboli) spotted this and it may be of interest here.  The ad is a little over a week old, so it may not be up to date.

18 Jan 2016 - I have a dream (too)

I've always lived in the suburbs within 50 miles of a major metropolitan area. In fact, the two most populous cities in the nation where land and housing is congested and expensive.  I've always dreamed that I could move to a more rural setting. A place where I could have a moderate sized house, but a HUGE barn like structure. I'd spend my free time acquiring 50's, 60'
