When my family left California in 1950 it was really was paradise even in LA. No gangs, few ill eagles, only small problems. Now look what 67 years has done. Its a completely different country now. At one time the people moving in was greater than the people moving out. It is now reversed with more people moving out than moving in. Say la vee.

Good picture of your NASCAR mini stock Pinto and driver. Sure to make the cover of Sports Illustrated any day now. Keep those pictures coming.

According to Fred (RIP wizard) and Jennifer D she was brought back to life and required a makeover to become employable again. Dreamboat Annie is a virtual employee alive in many minds of folks from the Pinto World of the past. Like Santa Claus, she exists in the minds of those who believe in the ride eternal and the Horse with many a name ;)

Is"dreamboat Annie" any relation to "Sophia the robot" who was just given citizenship by Saudi Arabian? You could at least make Annie a member of our club if she is not already one.

Well, Hmm, Haven't seen "Annie" in the Real world since Fred & Joy brought her along on the trip to Sacto before he passed away. Most of my images came from Fred & Co down south at the "yard". She ("Annie") is an identity, Myself , Fred and other Anonymous folk gave to the "entity " When she under went the Revival as Fred's PR person for Pinto World. All of the other images have cryptic origins and rival the ancient Sea Scrolls in value to the ignorant, and aloof personage. All of the other images in My presence, are from the Visit from Fred & Joy. We had a bunch of fun with the concept and now, Who Knows?  ::) Annie did Visit her Friends at PintoGirl's home in Sacto too ;D

Twas the Night before Christmas, and all through the Barn,
All the gearhead were stirring, all told was the Yarn
The clock would tock and follow with a Tick,
The Monitor was glowing , PCCA stuff from Dick..
The wrenches were hung on the Tool chest with care,
Not a one was missing, no one would take the dare..
When all of a sudden , there rose such a clatter,
Annie had dropped a tray, there was beer in the Batter
The looks from the folks attending the event,
Were tough on the eyes, and the Smiles kinda bent
Then into the Room , came a sense of huge dread,
Clyde brought more kegs, and a container of tough bread
All settled when the dippin sauce came,
The flavor was magical, and not even a bit lame
So think as the season, descends on your Brain,
It brings on the goodness, like a faster freight train!

 The Season is alive , with the looks of the many
 You think of those prices, and wonder by the Penny
 The Vans race through the neighborhoods quickly,
 The Security cams are many, and the residents prickly
 The spirit of giving has the world in a trance,
 People zip by in the malls, many in Skinny pants
 Think carefully when you give out the  list,
 Santa knows best and you must not be pissed
 So look at the life , and count those Blessing,
 It's better than you think, Karma not be Messing ;)

So the Dreamin continues...
 Take a Pre 76 Pinto and design the ultimate Low cost Inflation fighting Ford Pinto;
 What would it entail? Can it be insured properly and driven daily?
 Will it be economical to drive, and quick enough to meet the demands of 150HP econobox traffic?
 And most importantly will it be classy enough to bury the stereotype of the" Boom mentality"
 These are the strategic pony thoughts of a driver that needs to fight back, and not buy the Climate Change cars of the eco-agenda overlords in CA,
 Pintosopher, warming the cognitive herd one Bic a time... Flic, Flic

Dream no more. Jack (one 2.3 4 me) has such a Pinto. Lite weight, wide tires, lite flywheel, 4 barrel carb, header, race ignition, etc, etc. Nip cars look out! Its insured and driven daily. 150 HP? Well maybe some day. And the beat goes on, and the beat goes on.

I am not in the majority or Popular Opinion and don't care ....

I'll take an old fashion, gas guzzlin' American made car any day!!!


Hmm I lit someone's Stuffing a bit! ;D
 Let me clarify; At this time only pre 76 Pinto's are smog exempt, so you can't be creative with the newer cars to bury that issue. Earlier cars aren't subject to the CA parasite smog check, newer Pintos you won't be changing, unless you really want to go through a re-cert process with a referee station. All pre- OBD2 cars are subject to the dreaded Dyno BAR97 test. The visual inspection will catch you if the rollers don't. Even if you are able to improve the emissions and power to boot, you'll be disqualified as a resident operator.
 I personally believe the SOHC Pinto (2.0l EAO & 2.3 Lima) can be made to provide at least 130hp with aftermarket parts and careful tuning, (even better emission than Stock too) .  Until these (76-80) cars are allowed to  be included in the exemption for Classic vehicles, you'll be stuck with that cost and the grief that the emissions equipment imposes on you. Write your local state representative, and insist this 30+ years rolling exemption be re-instated.
 As far as cost per mile, it's got to be cheaper than a new KIA if you factor in the insurance ,registration and maintenance cost of the newer car. Forget the Air bags, that's for Loons and Politicians.
 Performance, my 72 on 92 octane gas and all the mods on the engine will eat some newer cars for lunch up to 80 mph ,( Even out dragged a 5.0L Mustang from the 80's ( we ran out of road!)  And yes ,if I was easy on the pedal 20+ mpg was doable.
 Of course, if you Move to AR ,as Dick suggests, the universe will reward you.

Up until 1999 or so, cars & trucks in Arkansas had to be inspected for brakes and tires. Now there is no longer any kind of inspection any where in the state. My 80 Pinto has no cat, no smog piping under the hood, Ranger cam, 2.3L Mustang cast iron header, and I'm sure there's more. All of these mods are a good reason to stay out of California.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.
