ESS cars should have the ralley gauges (tach) so it will have the 71-78 dash pad.  You are going to want to purchase a 71-78 cap for your ESS.

Reeves1- You are correct, replacement windshields have the same part number (same replacement PPG part) for all Pintos, BUT, the 71-72 (and maybe the 73?) have a slightly larger windshield that you can't seem to find anywhere unless you find a NOS item. I found out the hard way when I replaced mine...

Used the search....yup, the same.

Chris that's what I have been doing. Just registered the car 3 weeks ago, used 1 tank of gas so far. Clutch was to tight had to adjust but then all trunk model's from Sacramento CA are to tight for some reason  ;D anyway did oil change and bought 4 tire's so I am ready now.  Fred   :)

Yep, getting the Ghost ready!! Pulled the drive line tonight. I will take it to driveline place on Wed. morning. Then hopefully get it back that afternoon, if not I will have to wait till Friday to get it. Then I plan on running my own wiring from battery to cig lighter and to power outlet. I tried using the original wiring but for some reason it doesn't stay hot. Figure I am done with that, running my own, I know it will work all the time! LOL

So hopefully by the end of next weekend, she will be ready to load! LOL Not roll because I don't want to drive her that far! She is my Queen!!!  ;D ;D

See you all there!!!!!  ;D

Hello!

I do have my green "Class 19" ticket but don't think I can make it this year   :'( :'( :'(
My orange pumpkin is not running too good.  It did something real weird on the freeway a couple of weeks back.  My dad said the motor is getting tired and not to go too far out of town with it. I'm really bummed.

If anyone wants my show tag let me know.  I don't know if another car can go in my car's place.  Maybe Brad or someone would know the answer.

just my luck,

Jennifer

I'm just about ready for Knotts. Gonna change some freeze out plugs next week (one is seeping). Been driving the car to work a couple of days a week, letting it sit in traffic, So far running strong and cool. Only thing I notice is that since putting in synthetic motor oil, I get a lot of valve noise on startup after sitting overnight. I've heard that synthetic oils tend to drain back more than conventional oils (?). I'm going back to regular motor oil and we'll see what happens. Where do we get the info about meeting before the show and driving in?

Well, showtime is almost here and now I'm faced with a dilemma: Which Pinto to bring. Green Meanie, the wagon, was slated to go but Jerry the mechanic says the compression on cylinder 1 and 2 were bad to nonexistent when wet and dry tested. I wanted to show my lil' wagon off but now I don't think it's a good idea. So it looks like Ruby RedHot might go in her stead. I'd be happy with some feedback from y'all. Thank you.

Becky, I would take the best running Pinto if I was you! I would love to show off my Bella or Mad Max or Green Machine, but the Ghost is my best runner! So she gets to go! That and she looks the best too! LOL

Speaking of the Ghost! She has a new driveline, new oil and filter, and I re installed my hot wire for my power supply! The last time I did it, I used the already existing wiring. This time I ran a hot wire all the way to the battery! No more cutting off and on!!

All I need to do now is wait till the day before and vacuum and give her a bath!!! :D

Wow... hard to believe I was happy and excited only a few days ago...

Well, cut me some slack. I'm trying.


These pix are from the new camera. They looke washed out. I played around with it but I hate electronics tha don't come with instructions (ok I don't hate the electronics themselves, but I hate the practice of having to go on the 'puter to reference something or print them out where the pages are big and awkward instead of a little booklet that fits easily in a purse or something. Maybe someone at the show can help me adjust iyt or tell me what I need to do. I'm so stupid when it comes to new technology.
