2 days before we're "eclipsed", and the Light will dim across the land. As big a deal as Haley's comet and then some :o

Your only as smart as your last epiphany, but if you can see the Light, your world will never dim ;)

I have over 100 Nascar tee shirts in my shop in NW Arkansas for sale. I could not give them away for free. Could not sell them at $1.00 each.

Pintosopher, you are exactly right. The cost at the track is too much. Good to enjoy once in a while but not on a regular basis.

Why would any couch potato want to pay too much for tickets, Buy overpriced food, and wait to use the Facilities when nature calls? It's so much more convenient to just order in and fire up the Digital broadband, and you can pause to use the Bathroom in your own house. Smellovision coming soon to en

I think the cruddy racing at the Brickyard and the novelty of racing there has worn off more than NASCAR being in trouble. Not saying it's not, just saying it's not a good race to see in person at that facility

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"!
