That is a clean machine. I have never noticed the fasten your seat belt light in the dash before. Of course I'm new to Pintos. Also, be careful leaving your keys on the tunnel. Somebody might just drive away with it.

Can't be much to making heat. Check your heater core to see if it's hooked up. Check your heatercore inclosure to see if the vent door is opening. Check the blower motor as well.

Man, I have only been a Pinto owner for a couple of weeks and already giving good advice on repairing them. Hope I have the same luck with mine when I get home and start putting it back together.

Make, sure that you check your heater core for leaks. I understand that they make a heck of a mess inside your car if they do. I have read alot of the forums on here trying to educate myself.

BEAUTIFUL car! I want! I want!

Looks like your car came with some goodies, like automatic transmission, factory a/c, probably factory tinted windows (look for sun-x where the window lettering is). I'm fond of Pintos period, but I'm a sucker for blue interiors.  ;D

I can attest to the mess the heater core can make inside the car, I was driving it when the Core Blew up.. thankfully the wife had the seat all the way back and her feet up when i heard the noise of it starting to blow.

Awesome wagon! It seems that the 73's are popping up left and right this decade! :)
