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

ACME company sued! I just post this bit to cheer up the world a little ever couple years. Its always funny, young and old.  Go to http://www.lectlaw.com/files/fun19.htm  I read that Wile E Coyote problems are because he's using a Vega for power, and we all know how much power a Vega has. Get a Pinto Wile E and go kick some Mopar's (roadrunner) asap.

Go racing down under. Best I've ever seen, but sadly no Pintos.  http://www.community.ratsun.net/topic/71754-2017-adelaide-race-watching-datsuns-on-action   If this doesn't fire you up, you must be driving a Vega. Jack/Art/Joe this looks like it was over here 30 years ago. ENJOY.

Not to be branded, I have no Vega, But Dollars  would change the dynamic real fast  Check out how King Jerry is stripping the wealth of the middle class with his new infrastructure plan...  ;D

This is the kind racing that Pintos are best at. Ford didn't have many cars at the time except Pinto's and fox body Mustang's that were capable of this kind of motorsport action here in the states. Both could and would hold their own. The rules changed so much that now days you need a new wiz bang car with all the tricks. Most if not all of the Pintos run vintage now days and do good. Vintage is like what racing was like after WW2. But sadly not cheap.

Need seat belts for your Pinto? How about over 45 colors. Go to  http://www.sr.seatbeltsplus.com  Looks like the real deal with prices as low as $19.95

Is your family / tow car / truck in need of a timing chain? Well I can't help you there but I can help you in the future.  When your stop for any reason, turn the  key off before you put the car in park. This will keep the chain in tension till the engine stops. If you do this the chain will last as long as the engine will. My old Suburban has 215,000 miles on it with the same chain. Sorry but it will not work on a stick shift.

Want to build a race car? Just copy this one.  http://www.ebay.com/itm/292087134632?rmvSB=true  I saw this run on tv a while back. Looks great.

When you hear someone say you can never have too many Pintos, read what happen to this car guy at   http://www.jalopnik.com/the-bmw-addiction-that-complety-destroyed-this-man-s-1794882542    No tech tip in the world would have helped him.

That is a profound story, but we all have our own levels of Obsession or Just poor timing when it comes to cars and the money issue. It does beg the question, Will we ever allow ourselves to be "balanced" without counseling?
 The fools at CARB would love to see us labeled as Environ "mental" ly  criminal.

 Life is a Padded cell, belief is the key to freedom ;)

 Pintosopher, Bump steer is a tough setting to correct ;D

Good read on this,  my wife has capped me off and I respect that.  It's not worth it.  Terrance ruined his whole family and when he dies, 50 BMW 2002s will not be there to remember him.
