The collection in the "Pinto Shed" is the coolest thing ever. Thanks for sharing the photos.

I had a Green 75 Runabout that I never quite got running. It was called the Green Zombie. No name for the current Brown 73 Runabout but my SAAB resents being lumped in with the world's ugliest cars... it's just exceptionally frumpy.
did you say your saab does not like being in with ugly pintos, i am pretty sure thats a pot calling a kettle black.as far as ugly maybe the 80pintos grill but truth be told there is no pretty sabbs except maybe the sonnet i think it was called  maybe your thinking pacer

Was just following up on Dwayne's kidding about "ugly SAABs". I drive my Pinto one week and the SAAB the next. No one ever stops me to tell me how "cool" the SAAB is but someone will always start a conversation about the good times they had in their Pinto.

started off as the wonder wagon. (I wonder how far it will drive today?) then wander wagon until I had the steering rack rebuilt. it's been drippy for a while, and my 4 year old calls it daddy's hot rod.
yeah, I'm Krazi!

The names I call my Pinto are prolly not repeatable. I have a 77 that I call Harold II but she is soon to be gutted due to cancer that I can't control. As much as it was fate that I bought this thing it's been nothing more than a big pain from day one. I will be 100% glad to get rid of this stupid car & chop it up in to little pieces. We'll see what I decide to name its replacement which is a 1980 Runabout that hasn't been much better luck. Broke down on the way home with a blown tire & gushing gas from the carb followed by an engine fire that took out the wiring harness

I have officially named the white wagon Pestulence after the character in the movie. If you don't understand see my post under Pintos in Movies.
