The Country Pinto go to the City.
Opps, that was a mouse, wasn't it :embarassed:
I just finished writing a book in which one of the cars in the main character's stable is a Pinto wagon with a Focus SVT drivetrain. She drives it from Detroit to Las Vegas and uses it to PIT a Chrysler 300 along the way. Unfortunately, this book isn't published...
The book is Practical Demonkeeping by Christopher Moore
Joseph Wambaugh must have a soft spot for Pintos...In The Glitter Dome, one of the main characters drives a "...Five year old Pinto..." . The book was written in 1981. A couple weeks ago another Pinto made an appearance... in the book Hollywood Station. In that book an "...old blue Pinto..." was an important part of the story, as it was a borrowed car used in a series of mailbox thefts by a pair of meth-heads. I know I'm weird, and this topic is boring to many... but I get tickled even seeing Pinto in print and it not ne a negative thing specific to the car.
"....The Breeze blew into San Junipero in the shotgun seat of Billy Weston's Pinto wagon.The Pinto lurched dangerously from should to center line , the result of Billy trying to roll a joint one-handed while balancing a Coors tallboy and bopping to the Bob Marley song cracking through the stereo.
