hey everyone, just wanted to update ya on my 09 pinto. I have it 100% stripped. its a little bit more rotted then i originally thought.this was going to be a mini stock but upon further review its too rotted. but anyways i have a small question.. why does it have power steering?? arent these rack and pinion??

Power steering was an option. I don't know when it exactly became one though. I prefer the R&P feel a lot more though!
