Wow!  It would have never occurred to me any company in 2022 would be manufacturing Ford Pinto model kits!  are you going to build it stock or custom?  Oh, and Happy Birthday!

There's a Pinto Wagon model out there too beside the '78 hatchback.  These are made from the tools from the 70s.  So they are not up to today's standards for models.  But they are cool.

What does a model cost today? I remember when I was a kid back in the mid-60's they were $1.50. In the mid 70's there was a mom & pop hobby store that was either getting in new stock, or closing, can't remember which. They were selling the current stock of models for some ridiculously low price like $0.75 each. I remember my friend and I being there for well over an hour deciding what we would spend our $5 on.

I WILL BE DOING THE STOCK VERSION.                                                                                                                                           

Although I asked, it's truly none of my business, but I'm really glad to hear that.  A stock build just does an iconic seventies compact car more justice I think.  Please be sure to post some pictures!!!
