Tim - it's cause you are the original topic starter.
All mine are the same.

Hi Tim!  I took a look at all fourteen posts you've made in the nearly two weeks you've been with us and I do not see any evidence that any of them are, or have been, locked.  The symbol for a locked post is a little padlock. :)

4banger - I'm fairly sure there is a law stating no GMs in Pintos.

any Pinto rally cars out there?
« on: January 28, 2011, 07:21:28 AM »
I have been wanting to make my pinto into a rally car lately. Its either that or a pro-street style buy I think rally style because it would be waaay more fun and usable. Anybody out there have some all terrain tires, big ol' fog lights, maybe a off road tube bumper, or anything like that? I've tried searching but haven't found anything like this.
I know where a 78-80 fiesta is but I'd rather have RWD.

It's funny you post this up today. I was thinking the same thing. This month's Hot Rod mag has an article on the Rally/Baja cars of the 70's. They talk about all the cars that were built to off road race, the Pinto was mentioned. I have a 77 Runabout that would make a great rally car.I could make a neat skid plate and tube bumpers and the 2.3 would work great. Keep us posted on your project. It's a great idea.

I started going through my pile of parts , 8"Ford ,dana 44, sway-a-way coil overs,  many sets of leafs I think I have to build new upper & lower A arms tube type for more travel 10-12", have lots of left over truck & Jeep parts. Need to design a well built cage & skid plate system. I have the drive train built NA-2.3 /T5 already. Got to do it on the cheap. Best part about doing a rally car is function over beauty. No expensive paint jobs. Hmmm  I wonder if someone has some used ranger long travel suspension they don't need any longer. Sounds like a fine spring project.

nice! build her up! ha   Would be fun to actually build a car you could beat up. and I'm sure you could find a used set up on a rally website for a okay price.

Going to start on my cage & sub frame connectors first, then design suspension after, I don't think I'll go the long travel route just yet however use really good shocks/springs to start off. I'm going to check some rally sights to help the planning stage.
