I serve Amber Bock to one and all on holidays and never does anyone not like it. If I'm low on cash I get Bud light. After 3 beers they all taste the same any way.

Ponies in the barn, Hmm, a cuddly thought for those who know the sheer joy of Pintosophical existence.
 Should you find yourself outside in the chill, get that cup of Oatmeal to warm the cockles of your spirit and dust off the Horse. You might even sneak in a drive if the world is dry where your stable resides.
 Jennifer has the right idea.. Spread the Joy of the season

The Escort and the Capri were UK's Pintos. Don't know about the Escort but the Capri's were made in England well after the Pinto's final year. The Capri's and the Escort's have a very large following to this day in England.

Uh... the Capri was built in Germany through 1977.  There was no 1978 model, and the 1979 was marketed as a Mercury Capri which was a Ford Mustang clone.

I don't thing your striped to the bone Pinto would look right with Panasports on it. A set of stock car wheels would be better as long as you have a boy racer Pinto for the street. A set of 7/16" hood pin would help with the look too. Two 1/8"X 1" straps over the back window says racer. And of course a rear spoiler on the trunk lid.

I agree Dick, a set of Bassett 15x7s would be perfect. I saw a young guy at fabulous Fords with a set on his beater Mustang II this year. Looked great. I've thought about the hood pins for years to lighten the weight of the stock hood latch assembly, and to also lose the hood hinge buckets and hinges. Only problem is, every hole I drill into the body work makes it harder to sell, if necessary. I installed a 1/16" Lexan rear window with a stripped Pinto sedan trunk lid to replace the Runabout hatch. It's much lighter and I like the sedan look more. I'd definitely like to have functional spoiler, (and a reason to need one), on that trunk lid.

The rear spoiler on my Red Pinto race car (when I was autocrossing it) Was bolted to the part of the trunk that hangs down and is about 1" deep. The spoiler was 8" high and 40 something inches long. The bottom 1" was bent at a 45 deg angle and this was bolted to the trunk lid. So the piece of aluminum was 9" X 40 something inches long and made out of .062 (1/16) T-6 aluminum.

The picture of my old red Pinto shows the rear spoiler after it was cut down from 8" to 3" to meet the vintage road racing rules. Same spoiler, just later on. The 8" spoiler fit the SCCA rules for autocrossing. The 3" spoiler fit the SCCA rules for road racing.

Your spoiler looks great Dick and thanks for the pic pintosopher. Was the 8" tall, 1/16" aluminum spoiler stout enough at speed, 80 or so, to avoid fluttering? (for lack of a better word)

If you use 1/16" (.062) thick T6 aluminum it will be stronger than the trunk lid. Do not try to bend it yourself as T6 is very strong and will not bend without using a sheet metal brake. Get a piece of aluminum 9" x the width of the trunk lid. Then bend a 45 deg bend on the bottom 1". When you go to mount it, start in the middle of the trunk lid. On my red Pinto the trunk lid was gutted so it formed itself to the spoiler very easily. You may need to shim up the spoiler as T6 will not bend easily and would bend the trunk lid first. Best I can remember I had five 1/4" bolts holding the spoiler on the trunk lid. On the top edge of the spoiler on each end radius the spoiler so as to not stab someone. I did a 1" radius on mine. Easy as pie.

Merry Christmas to all of our Pinto brothers and sisters through out the world. May 2018 be the year you're wishing it will be.
