The reaction the Disco Pinto received was nothing short of astonishing. From time to time through out the show I would stand back and watch the the people gather around the front of the car in amazement. It brought a smile to most spectaters faces as well as tons of photographs. In fact I would speculate this was easily the most photographed vehicle out of the 1800+ in attendance.

The Disco Pinto:
  I think there is a song in the making, "I fell like DRIVING..., Driving..., driving...    Yeaaa"

To everyone who brought their Pinto's:
Many thanks.  Given the price of gas your financial sacrifice is appreciated.   I enjoyed talking to you all.

To Fred:
 Thanks for doing the pedal swap. All the best with your projects.

Show "moment":
 When I introduced myself to Pintony and he thought I was the guy he had recently made "comments" about.  He stepped back and half seriously asked if I was going to take a swing at him.  :o
 When I explained to him I wasn't that guy, but simply the guy who bought the white, '73 wagon out of San Francisco back in Oct. we had a nice talk about our Pinto's.  Sorry to bring it up, but from my perspective (I'm often thought to be "the other guy") it was amusing.

By the way, I just noticed in the pictures from Turbopinto72 that Pintony's car was in a handicapped space. I hope he didn't get a ticket!

I'm wondering about how the guy with the Mustang turbine/hurricane wheels on his Pinto managed to do it without rubbing his A-arms?

  I think your talking about me with the black wagon?   No spacers at all, they cleared fine, not by much though, I have about 1/4 inch clearance. I used to have them on a 80 hatchback and had to use spacers though.

Holy crap that was a busy weekend! From the week getting Thomas's baby blue pinto ready, to Saturdays bbq at my house and Leonards sweet welding of thomas's custom motor mount (pintozeal has pix), the 16 pinto drive to the show Sunday morning to the 34 cars at the show, I never sat for a minute! So I slept all day monday. That was a hell of a show guys! Thanks brad for the quiz, I dont know how I keep doing so well but I got another great shirt out of it! Great to see all the Nor Cal folks (like my uncle and cousin) and all the others that came from out of state! Bought some great parts off Fred and Mike plus Thomas and I got to show off out new pinto parts that we had made all for sale! What an amazing weekend! Thanks for the sign Scott!!! Here are pix I took:

http://www.ringo.com/photos/album.html?albumId=43050093

Enjoy!

The only downside was my poor sister was so sad that her car Hughie couldn't make it. We dropped a new drive line in the car a week before and we just didn't feel comfortable driving to fab fords with zero miles on it. Oh well, there is always next year!

Just wanted to drop a note saying how nice it was to be a part of the Pinto Team at Knotts! 

Enjoyed talking to some of you.  Had a nice little chit chat with Alberto.  I thought Larry from Moreno Valley was cool and was glad that he was able to get into the show!

Loved the Disco Pinto!  I think it was a favorite.

To Pintony, I thought it was very nice for you to bring those awesome patches.  Hope you had a safe trip.  You deserve props - I would not have done the long trip! (maybe in a back of a limo!!!!)

And a thanks to Brad for organizing the event.  It was flawless.  I know that it is a lot of hard work to make things come together so smoothly.


had a lot of fun,
Jennifer from Yucaipa
