Thanks Dick,
 May we all be blessed with good health, prosperity, and a sense of fellowship that keeps the Barn warm and the Pinto riders dry and full of oats...
 Merry Christmas to all ... ;D
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?

One week into the New Year, and the world is still painting with the Horsetail brush of Equine ignorance. What to do as the frost and Ice partially thaw? We know our rides are cool, the Thumbs up crowd is growing, Soon another Historical article of our interests? We shall see. I would challenge the publishers to do  a heads up comparison of the Vintage racing versions and even a Street legal performance version against a current comparable displacement compact.
 In the meantime, don't let that popsicle outside dim your enthusiasm. Plan , create, and even share ideas, The weather won't last forever.. ;)

Time waits for no one, Yet the cars keep climbing in interest as they age. What is the value of your survivor or resurrection ride? $24 thousand for a 74 Pinto squire wagon with all the options at a recent Mecum auction.  Orange color too! What can a nicely maintained ride be worth? Yet the one thing that makes all this relevant, Is People! You must be a reasonably good steward of your health to keep the legacy going.
 I spent a bunch on health supplements that could easily go towards the Pinto and the tools to keep the garage ready to maintain them.
 Priorities, Health, Home, then cars and the people in your life. The last two are interchangeabl e given circumstances that vary.. ;)
 Don't let the Pair of Ducks rule your life.. It's a basic principle to happiness 8)
 QVACK Qvack.. :o

 The pond of living is full of Ducks sometimes in pairs, mostly fleeing the Buckshot of the Karmic Guns that hunt those daily ;)
 Pinto People live in a Paradox of parts, lost ideas , missing manuals and even  a cross reference or two. But we persevere , and we do find it or modify it to fit. The season gets us in a doldrum, and then we panic and rush to completion before that first show or meet.
 So as the creak of temperatures changing lulls you into a sense of apathy, retrench , reboot, and fight to keep that Horse rolling down the road. Someday, we be in Repop heaven and the Pinto will be immortal.. Be a good steward, and make sure it'll be around for decades. ;)
