I see Mike's (Love dat BOSS!!), Barth's (Brad's old PAN-), Becky's (Are those new Wheels?), Fred's, Joe's (Sweet new paint job!)- Who's was the silver with the fender flairs? Sweet...  If I did not mention you, forgive me- it's hard to keep up with everyone's ride & it's been 2 years since I have been to Knotts.  Looks like a great turnout!

Nope... the wheels were on her when I went back east last year! I did wash them, though.  ::)   I'm not happy that Alberto caught me feeding my face... but in my defense those were pretzels I was munching on.  ;D I was a good girl... til breakfast and dinner later! lol :o

GREAT photos!  Looks like the weather was fantastic and everyone was having a good time!  The weather here on the east coast was/is cold and miserable!  Yuk! :P   For years, I'd said 2012 was going to be my year to make it to Knotts but unfortunately life got in the way and it was impossible for me to leave home this year.  It's still on my bucket list, though... so one of these days!!!

Wow, the pictures look so much better on my computer instead of my iPad. LOL IPad was making them look like you only took pics of the front, then back halves of the cars. LOL  Thanks for sharing them as I forgot my camera in the rental truck back at the hotel and I just didn't take any with my iPhone.

We finally made it home about 5 pm on Monday. We drove the rental truck to Visalia, spent the night then drove to Fresno and got a part for the truck. Took the rental back and found out we bought the wrong part for the truck. LOL You don't want to know how much the rental was!  :o LOL At least I didn't spend as much on gas as I thought I was going to, so that helped a little. We ended up nursing the truck home. We think we know what the problem is, but because we only drive it once a year, we are going to find the part the cheaper way then buying it brand new! LOL We have plenty of time to find a good used one. LOL

Other then the truck problem I had a great time. It was great seeing all the familiar Pinto Peeps faces again!! :D If gas prices don't sky rocket and we both have paying jobs, lol, I plan on being there next year. That would be the only 2 things that would stop me. I really like getting together with the people from this forum!! :D

Interested in the front air dam.
I have the same air dam on mine, came from JC Whitney a long time ago. The picture showed a Mach 1 type spoiler but that is what I got after a looooong wait.
If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

Unfortunately, if you look closely they're similar, but not the same.  Mine's got a few extra openings in it.  Sadly, I don't know the source, as it was on the car when I got it....but 71pintoracer may still be on to something.  Perhaps this was a Mustang II version of that piece...or something.  In any case, the source of the air dam has been a source of much speculation (nearly as much as the factory sunroof)  and everything from Chevy Monza to J.C. Whitney has been suggested.  If I ever find a definitive source, I'll be happy to share it!

Wish I could have gone!
 
 Becky, I just realized that you have side protection molding from the fender above the Pinto emblem all the way to the back of the fender!

I have never seen that on a Pinto before, usually it stops right before the rear wheel well.

LOL Dave, neither have I! When I first saw Ruby in the "flesh" I wondered if it was factory,  because when I was a kid I saw a few Pintos and lots of Mustang IIs and Mavericks with molding all the length of them. Turns out it's after-market. The early Pintos had retaining nuts on the back of the moldings.  Ruby's "Fred And Bob- installed" driver's door, also from a '71, has the correct molding. Then again, it has that nifty black trim that doesn't match the rest of Ruby...  ;)

i had one very similar to it on my 71.  i bought it from a vendor in so-cal here in late 71 IIRC. can't remember the name (not that they would be in business any longer anyway.) back then they were fairly popular.  same style possibly small differences.
