Family trip-met some great pinto folks
« on: June 24, 2014, 11:16:43 PM »
I'm traveling across the USA to Yellowstone on a Family camping trip and managed to meet some Great Pinto folks...

In Souix Falls SD I was privileged to meet Tim Reiners, Aka Tim R on our site. He has an incredible 73 with bobcat tail lights, sport mirrors, deluxe chrome and monster v8 that is a complete sleeper.




She sounds so sweet!

Also met Bud '79Prostreet' and Verna Van Bockern in Souix Falls. Quality folks! Bud has a 79 Wagon that he is creating a pro street car from. He has been working on this project for 3 years and has made incredible progress. Here are some shots of his car on the rotisserie...






I was just blown away over how much he has accomplished and how well this car is put together!

Went to the 'Pioneer Auto Show and Prairie Town' in Murdo, SD www.pioneeraut oshow.com and found a Pinto!


This pinto was in great shape but dirty... No rust! I bet he would sell it ... Any takers?

My daughter then found another Pinto in the 1880's attraction town we visited.


Don't think they would sell this one!

Stopped by Dave Herbeck's (Original74) house in Tulsa OK on our way back to Alabama- Dave let me drive his 'new' pinto, jade!  This car has less than 1k miles on it and with original tires! It's a brand new pinto just off the factory floor ... What a thrill!



In the background you will see Geroldine's trailer- he's getting ready for the Stampede as am I. Dave will be taking Jade in this trailer in a few weeks. It's going to be a great time! 

Have know Dave for many many years, one of the best in our community!

Looks like a great trip!  Welcome home!  So Dave let you drive Jade, eh?  I'm jealous now!  lol   As you know, I got an up close and personal look at Jade way back in 2008 and it is definitely one NEW Pinto!

Actually it was my plan to alter course and drive right through your area yesterday but we had a late start and got lost looking for the 'batfish' in Muskogee OK. We found ourselves too far south afterward. I saw on the Member Map that you were close and had you on my radar screen.. Sorry I missed you Dick- hopefully next time!

Looking at the Stampede trip in 2weeks, I think you are too far west on my way up from Alabama to Dearborn. I'll be posting my route in a few days in the Stampede threads so I can try and meet up with as many folks as I can... Love doing this! There are so many wonderful folks across this great country that are Pinto Geeks!

Dick,
I wish I had known where you live - I used to visit relatives in Siloam Springs fairly frequently - I would have come by for a visit!  In fact, that's where I'd been when I met up with Scott and family at Dave Herbeck's in 2008.

Just want to say thanks to Scott and his wonderful family for taking the time to stop and say ' HI' on their way thru. Wish I could have  been able to show them around a little bit, but showing them the Pinto ate up most of the time they had. A great big thank to Mrs. Hamilton and the kids for allowing Dad to use up some of their precious vacation time to stop and see Pinto people along the way. I look forward to meeting some of the Pinto family once we have the hot rod on the ground and able to travel to meets and shows, hoping that will start next year.( God willing and the creek don't rise)  Bud

Well, we are all home now- back in Alabama. Had a great time visiting with several of you on the trip, looking forward to doing this again on the stampede trip. If you have not, place your PIN in the Member Map on our site. Several of us use this to try and meet folks across the country as we travel. It's a great way to learn more about our hobby and really have fun!

Glad you made it home safely Scott! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and visit once again. And as was said above, you have an incredible wife and family to support your interests. Thanks for all you do for the Pinto community.
 
@Dwayne, are you able to make it to the Stampede in Dearborn? I'll let you drive Jade! HA! There's a carrot! It would sure be nice to see you again.
 
@Scott, what a way to travel the USA! Stop and see as many Pinto folks as you can, I really like that idea.
 
See you soon in Dearborn,
Dave

Wow!  That IS a carrot!  lol  I had originally planned to go to Dearborn but a long weekend trip to Tennesee in April proved beyond any doubt that Gloria is not up to a trip of that magnitude.  Her health has worsened significantly since you saw her in 2008.  She can no longer walk without assistance and is too stubborn to use her wheelchair.  We survived the Tennessee trip only because Cody and his wife Brittany went with us and were a great help, but they have other plans over the summer and aren't interested in the Michigan trip.  So, with deep regret, I emailed Norm when we returned home and bowed out.  I'm really bummed out about it because I haven't been to Dearborn since the late seventies and I was really looking forward to going back again, as well as seeing all the Pintos and the Pinto people!
