Or maybe this one on eBay is NOT Jade....I could be mistaken. Doesn't Jade have around 400 original miles? At any rate, a great car to drive around town on St. Patrick's day!

I believe the new owner wrote that he intended to drive it.

"Jade" was a 1979 Pinto. The Ebay car is a 1973.  https://barnfinds.com/jade-time-capsule-1979-ford-pinto/ (scroll down on page).

Thanks for the link.
The article had a sarcastic tone, and I don't agree with his statement, "The Pinto was not known for its great styling." He's nuts! One lady looking at my car exclaimed, "This Pinto is stinking adorable!"  That says it all!
Anyway, I'm watching the green one on eBay; no bids yet. (Wonder what the blue round thing is sticking out of the driver side air vent)

The eBay green pinto didn't sell, reserve not met.
Starting bid $8,000 and bidding didn't even make it up to $9,000.
Only 2 bidders as well.
On a brighter note, a Corevett owner got all excited today about my Pinto!

I was at a light and a guy with a tricked out pickup honked his horn and motioned me to roll down my window. Then he said "You are a cool guy and that's the coolest car I have ever seen." I corrected him. I said I am just a regular guy, the rest is true.Bill

Thanks for telling us that conversation exchange; brought a big smile to our faces, and agree with your Deuteronomy verse!
I just see the 1973 Pinto is back on eBay listed at $9,500 or best offer.
It will probably go this time. If I had the garage space I'd buy it.

"Gorgeous!" Was the description I heard today at a stoplight, and it wasn't me they were talking about!
