Central Meet Results....14 Pinto's! Read On!
« on: June 06, 2007, 07:32:30 AM »
What a success!!!

We had an impressive showing of 14 Pinto's at the Central Regional PCCA Meet in Tulsa. Not all of them were together at one time due to time constraints, but what an impressive showing! Tulsa hasn't seen 14 Pinto's since the close of the 1980 model year at a Ford dealership.

I have to say this was absolutely the best time I have had with the Pinto community. We had 7 cars at the Ford Performance and Shelby Meet on Sunday. Fun was had all weekend, including road racing, eating, a little wrenching, more eating, cleaning, shining, more eating, car show and more eating.

I believe the Regional Meets were a success this year. As best I can tally, we got something like 58 cars together in 2007.

My personal thanks from myself and my wife to all those who supported this event in Tulsa. We learned a lot and will only improve in years to come. We will be posting pictures soon and probably cause Scott great misery in the server storage area.

Thanks again to all, more later.

Dave

I will be arriving on Thrusday and staying at the KOA the 14th thru 17th.

I'll be bringing my car and as for interest/participation - car show on Sunday, as for the rest I just plan on going with the flow.

side note : A friend of mine (Bob Edwards) will be in Texas picking up a new cube van on Friday and at this point may be joining the fun Friday night. Doesn't have a Pinto but does have a 69 Mustang (restored - not bringing) and a big Ford nut. He wants to attend the swap meet, he's not confirmed yet but will most likely attend too.
It's all about the Pintos! Baby!

   I'm planning to join the Tulsa fun Thursday and Friday.  If Cookieboy and Pintony travel to Wichita Wednesday, I plan to drive Polly in a little parade with them and High_Horse on Thursday morning.  I think the group plan is to go by way of I-35 and US-412.  If Cookieboy and Pintony by-pass Wichita, High_Horse and I will go cross country.

   I'm interested in visiting with the "Pinto family" the two days I'm there.  Cruizin' sounds good; the Mopar dig-up would be good to see also.

   My wife has agreed to these two days of unsupervised adventure as a Father's Day present.  (She cares about me so much, she bought me an AAA membership!)

Update:

I received a call from Alberto Wednesday evening. The three cars from CA have made landfall in Indian Territory! They were about 30 miles shy of Tulsa and heading to the road track Thursday morning.

At this point, I believe Cookieboy hooked up with Pintony and they drove to Wichita to pick up HighHorse and PollyAl.

The Pinto's are coming! The Pinto's are coming! Tulsa will be glad to see this, I think they are getting tired of seeing just mine!

All,

For those attending Tulsarama, the lifting of the car is at noon, but I do not believe it will be anything you will be able to see. The unveiling is this evening at 6:30ish downtown. It is a sold out event so if you do not have tickets, you will probably not get in.

I am home today, Friday, hoping to have anyone over to my house that has the time. I am prepared to flip some burgers and feed you all before heading downtown. I do not have a ticket so will be watching on TV for anyone who wants to hang out here, everyone is welcome.

I am planning on feeding everyone barbecue Saturday evening. We can do the quarter mile track events and swap meet. I would like to, rain permitting, gather out somewhere Friday or Saturday nights and show the young kids what cool cars really are.

My cell number is 918-408-6976. Give me a shout. I will also be hosting a private showing of Jade, the newest, lowest mileage Pinto on the planet in the comfort of my rain dry, air conditioned garage. There will be a raffle for a private drive as well. (Just kidding, couldn't resist bragging a little with Tulsarama and such going on! LOL)

For those watching this thread and have not heard of Tulsarama, go to www.buriedcar. com.

Tonight at 7PM Central, you can watch streaming video at www.kotv.com of this live event.

Tulsarama is originally why a few folks from CA came to Tulsa. As it turned out, it is the same weekend as our meet, so they drove three Pinto's! Awesome!

The weekend is turning to be a real good time.....we connected up with Tom, Mario and Alberto from California and drove over to Daves for a party in his garage. We also went up to the Marriot and snaked around in prossesion though all the trailers and cars with the Pintos. We will post pics shortly....It is off to the dragstrip tomorrow for the swapmeet and rubber sniffing. It has rained throughout the weekend but not to the extent of being any interuption.

Here's you an inside story Scott...

While attending the Knott's Western meet, I met Pintopower (Alberto). He was most enthusiastic about my Jade. His most curios question was this....'Dave, what does a new Pinto smell like?'. He was born the year they stopped making Pinto's, so that was an interesting question from him. Not only did he get to smell what a new Pinto smells like, he got to feel what a new Pinto drives like. He had such enthusiasm that I insisted he 'exercise' her a couple miles. All he could say was 'Oh my god.....oh my god...'

The meet was fantastic. We all got to see Gerards car that now lives 40 miles south of Tulsa and encouraged Travis to join us online. That was a treat. We also met Tulsa Turbo who brought his car over on it's maiden voyage, the first time he has driven it since he brought it home from Kansas last fall.

Oh man, and Frank did a fabulous job on custom making wooden laser engraved plaques for us. We will post results and pics soon.

srt,

Quite a few of us went to the drags, but our only time was 6 hours in the sun and a sunburn to prove it! LOL

None of the Pinto's hit the quarter mile but Pintopower and Thomas drove their cars on the Hallett road course on Thursday and had a blast. I hope they can post some pics of that. They are headed back to CA today on a liesurely drive hitting as much of Route 66 as they can. The mother road will never be the same!
