What a day!  The sun just about killed me, but it was great to finally meet everybody and see their rides in person.  Thanks to turbopinto72 for coming through with the window sticker...now the car looks complete.  Oh...I can't remember who I was talking to about the rollcage in my '72, but it was made by Autopower Industries.

It was worth the heat!  :o

"Welcome aboard, this is your Captain speaking."  I got my picture taken in the "Flying Pinto!"  ;D  Thanks Tony.

It was great talking "Pinto's" with all of you that I met.  Hopefully, next year, my Pinto will be there too.

Wow! What a weekend!

       Volunteering yesterday was not only fun (to me), but I'll be happy to do it again next year ;D ! But today... I had an absolute BLAST!!! I met some wonderful people and saw some real beautiful Pintos (no Bobcats?) and while I cooked myself well-done in the baking sun I would do it all again. Well, next time I'm bringing the BIG cooler...lol. I got to (finally!) meet my long-lost (tall, blonde) sister and met the legendary Alberto and soooooo many other people I would be proud to call my friends.

        This morning, while approaching Carrow's parking lot and spotting Wildfire's very close relatives I told my copper queen, with tears in my eyes, "We made it, Baby. We have arrived!"  :)
One can never have too many Pintos!

Oh, and I want to say Thank You to those who believe in me and encouraged me to get Wildfire up and running and me to bring my Pinto girls to Buena Park. Thank you all for making today a most wonderful day! I had a blast! But now, I have to wait another year... :'( sniff to do it again!  ;)

Howdy all,
 To those of you who could attend,  :drunk: It sounds like it was a real Hoot, a "toasty" one but great nonetheless.

 Becky, Just think how much improvements you'll take to next year's show with maybe Both Pintos!

 Because I was with you guys in spirit,I went out and Pulled the car cover off my racer and Popped a Cold one (90deg here). Then I went inside for a cooler view of the Long Beach GP.

 Here's to next year and all the good vibe's in between... :drunk:

 Pintosopher, In the Stable, but planning his escape.. :fastcar:
Yes, it is possible to study and become a master of Pintosophy.. Not a religion , nothing less than a life quest for non conformity and rational thought. What Horse did you ride in on?

Even if all went well and I could bring both, that's gonna be a feat... when there's two of them (Pintos) and only one of me... :lol:... and if I am a Mustang II martyr by this time next year then I'll have three cars and still... only one me. MIIs were nonexistent this year on the tarmac with us commoners but I hear there was one in the grassy area.  :drunk:

And Pintosopher, while you're in the stable planning your escape (not like the Pina Colada Song) be like the Pony She Named Wildfire and bust down your stall.  :D

"She ran calling Wildfire......  ;D "  Sorry to hijack the thread but I am a fan of Michael Martin Murphy" and had origially named my wagon "Wildfire" after the song (red, pony  ;D ) but I am glad I changed it.

I am glad everyone had a great time. I am sure our mini meet at Milwaukee will be fun

I like Michael Martin Murphey too. That's my favorite song of his, and it still chokes me up because of the tragedies within. My Wildfire isn't red but her copper color, while crazed, is passionate and fiery!  :D

Many thanks to all the fine Pinto folks we met at the show. My wife and I had a great time and took lots of pictures. I will post some of them later as we just arrived back in the mountains off of Shasta Lake. It was fairly hot down there, but that didn't stop the enthusiasm. Pinto people are a great bunch! Hope everyone got back home safely.

Pinto's are cool!

OK and now the details. We all met at Carrows for breakfast, and as usual the manager did not tell the servers that we would be there so they had to call in for reinforcements  ;D
Had a great breakfast with about 40 people...Whoo Hooo....
Pintony had a quiz for us so we past those out and I had prepared an " expert" class quiz for the brains of the group.
And the winners are..... Barth for the expert class and Emily's Dad won the novice class. Both winners received PCCA shirts.

At the show we had a surprise visit from Scott Hamilton.

HOT HOT HOT was the word for the day. My temp gauge in my truck was 102 when I got in it at 3:30ish.

There was 35 pintos at the show and one in the parking lot ( so I counted it )

Wow! What a great time I had, what a fun drive it was, the little yellow Runabout has a sweet spot at 80mph :fastcar: and I tried to keep her there most of the way, I saw very few CHP'S :0). It was a pleasure meeting everyone, I hope everyone had as good of a time as myself. I was glad to meet the folks from back east Brian,Dale,Scott,Tony wow what die hards.
Thanks for the great time, you SO-Cal guys are great hosts.
