I saw another pinto on the road this week. It's the first one I've seen rolling since I got my 76. It was a peach-ish colored wagon, I think it had small bumpers. Was it anyone on the board?

Took my pink pinto out yesterday and got more than a handful of thumbs up.  Even more than what wife's Nova gets.  Both 72 cars.

I usually get  3-5 thumbs up a week, about the same number of folks making photos and usually 2-3 notes on my windshield a month.

About 3-5 folks telling me stories of pintos tbey or their family or friends have owned per week.

I get the thumbs up all the time. Last week at a major intersection, I stopped for a red light. The driver next to me got out of his can and started taking photos. I smiled but I don't think I was the subject of the picture.

2 story's. When i finally able to move my project  77 cruising wagon to my friends house. A Mexican guy walking by stopped  and said Vega? After i told him what it was he said cool car.
Then few months later at my friends house. He had just bought a 89 full size blazer and had another friend over to show him and all his friend would talk about was how cool my Pinto was LOL.

I do have a concern that when I finally do finish this current Pinto Project, someone's going to try & steal it,(or worse, one of the resident hillbillies in my area will hit it. I WILL insure it high enough to make 'em cry if they do!!. lol

I've barely begun to work on this Pinto restoring/rebuilding it & I get lots of "What kind of car is that?" & "Nice Pinto, I had once.."

I do wish this site would get rid of any notion of "Demo-derby", I hate the idea of people wrecking perfectly good cars that at least could be used for parts just to see things "Destroyed"!
