You could have used flex pipe but your looks much better and will last longer too. Only us poor boy's with out a welder use flex pipe. At least to drive it to a muffler shop. Keep up the good work. Your post are always good information.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.

Robert came to visit on his way to job training in the Netherlands, and brought some parts that I was missing from the interior of my car, and would be impossible to find here. Thanks a bunch Robert!
Then an even bigger surprise, Robert opened a large suitcase, and folded out came a new Pinto carpet, which had been sent to him by Blaine! That’s just unbelievable, I don’t know how to thank Pinto_ One  enough for this!
Robert is at the left in the picture, Geert (that’s me) at the right.
And maybe it’s just me, but I had the impression that Donkey’s headlights were shining brighter today…

He has wheels in the garage.  I seen them.  Glad to see Geert's progress on the wagon.  Blaine gets credit as I was just courier.

Once again Donkey went to the Antwerp Classic Salon (40th edition). On the parking lot he cuddled up to a Audi Ur-Quattro.
Other joys to be seen on the increasingly wet and muddy parking were the classics in the second image, if you look carefully you can also see parts of several recent Bentley convertibles and Porsches next to and behind them, it gives an idea of the wide variety of people that this event attracts.
Third image shows a French Ford SAF Comète Monte Carlo, which has the French version of the 239 flathead V8.
Fourth image is a rally prepped Mustang.
I’m sorry, but there wasn’t a Ford 2.0 or 2.3 in sight, only Pinto connection was a Capri 2.8 from the last day they built them in 1986.
Used parts availability on these shows is getting poorer by the year, seems that everything is going by the Internet nowadays, and I don’t care for stands with model cars, leather caps and goggles.

Here are some extra “eco green” Salon impressions, more or less as a protest against Antwerp creating a LEZ (low emission zone) for the inner city, effectively banning 1 in 5 vehicles registered in that zone (!) from entering it. All over Europe cities are creating their own crazy schemes, so you never know what you’re up against when driving a car older then say 15 years.

Nice show.  The big cities here have emissions testing up to a certain age usually 30 yrs or greater, every state different.  I live in country but work in city so I basically get a free pass to pollute the 90 kilometer commute each way

So sad to have to say farewell…
To a period accessory; the tin mud flaps have reached the end of their working life, all battered and with torn out bolt holes they have to go.
To soften the loss I took Donkey on a 130 mile round trip to the “American Day” in Boxtel.
Here he was in rather exquisite company, but still drew attention for being a true rarity, no Pinto’s here, let alone wagon’s.
I might have tried to enter the “concours d’elegance” competition, but in hindsight, that would have have been a step too far.
Donkey behaved impeccably all day, but this was the first time I experienced some fuel starvation with a more than half empty tank on accelerating out off a left hand corner.  Future update wish list gets tank baffling or a swirl pot added.
Still have to find time to perform other work that was already in the planning though, home improvement chores get in the way.
