2012 Stampede!
« on: May 21, 2012, 04:12:49 PM »
Well, it has come and gone.  I had a great time and met some new freinds.  The Stampeders from last year made it feel like home, you guys and gals have a special place with me. Martinsville, Woods Bros., Ernies ( the surprise addition of South Boston Raceway) and The Hogs head on day one, were epic. Day two with the NRA and Udvar-Hazy museums provided a nice time to walk around and stretch the legs with an end at the hotel.  I miss the guys giving me a hard time while I repaired Louise's radiator hose. The jokes were fun, Harley, you the man, even though you kept going on ahead of us, you acted like a scout for the Stampede. And then we went to Summit Point for the car show and races, that was fun.  I got a little to enthusiastic on that course, pent up testosterone I guess. all in all a great time, the last day we ate at the Cracker barrel and said goodbye.  I almost teared up when John and Wayne pulled off toward Baltimore leaving my little group as it was when we left my driveway on Tuesday morning. I was surprised to hear some say this gets better every year, because the first trip was so long in the making and occupied twice as much time with double the Pinto's.  I wasn't done with this one and cannot wait for the next one.

Did you happen to look down at your speedometer? Looks like even more fun than Martinsville was. It was great meeting you and the others, sorry I was unable to make the whole Stampede.

When I looked down it was pinned as far as it would go.  I believe I was around 120 MPH by feel from going down the 1/4 mile.
No worries man, thanks for coming out the Woods Bros. and sharing that sweet green wagon with us.
Stampedes are great from begining to end, but if you can be a part of one in anyway, I am sure you would agree.  it was well worth the trip!

Yes it was definately worth taking time off from work to meet and enjoy the other Pinto enthusiasts.
 How long before you know how much was raised for the Wounded Warriors?

Norm, that looks like it was a blast. I was disappointed that I couldn't make this year's stampede but I could barely afford Carlisle, let alone the stampede. Hope to be able to make the next one. See you in a week & a half at Carlisle!

I did make shirts, I will be selling them at Carlisle this year to the car show enthusiasts.  I didn't get much good feedback on the design here so I wasn't going to mention the shirts.  But if you want one, T-shirts are $20, baseball shirts are $25, add $5 shipping costs.  Sizes M,L,XL while supplies last. just email me at bosspinto@pintostampede.com and I will shoot you my address.

Glad everyone came out. The Pinto Stampede was certainly a big help in making the Jefferson 500 a success. The Friday night party was a blast!

Great video Jim,  I wish I could have gotten up to speed, but I stretched the legs a little.  Maybe one day, anyway, thanks for all the help and it was good talking with you at carlisle on Saturday.  Keep in touch and keep that Pinto running hard.

Likewise, Norm!

I'll have the Pinto back on track for the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix in July @ PIRC. If anyone in the area wants to come cheer us on, there will be atleast one other ELBRacing Pinto joining me.
