I've looked at a few self alignment tool sets over time. Didn't get one.....yet.

If you would buy one of those speed shop magnetic base alignment tools, you will be able to align any and all car from now on. Very simple to use. Even a Vega owner could do it. At about $100 a real good tool to have.

The front end alignment spec I listed would be fine on the street. Might be a little hard to steer a very slow turn's. Would be better than a wobble.

Which reminds me.... what camber/castor would you have on a car that you plan on running as a street/strip car ?

You need at least 6 deg negative castor for straight line racings with 0 deg camber and ;D 1/16" tow in on a race car.

Pinto paint schemes
« on: June 28, 2012, 08:40:14 PM »
I remember back in the 70's they had a series of Ford cars (I saw a Capri)  with a solid black with gold trim. I wonder if they ever made a Pinto in that scheme. I saw a few when they first came out but none since, and never a Pinto.

My '80 came factory black/gold inside & out. I'm not sure if this is what you are referring to....

The interior is almost dead on.  I don't think they made too many of the black/gold ones. Nice car by the way.

Wonder what color mine was originally ? Have not found any sign of old paint yet. Been meaning to see if I can get a Marti ......one day.

Thank you. The only other one I saw was in pics another member sent me of one he owned but it was in rough shape & the interior was shredded. I have the original window sticker in the glove box. I need to post a pic & see if someone can decode the option for it.
