Yes, it is possible to study and become a master of Pintosophy.. Not a religion , nothing less than a life quest for non conformity and rational thought. What Horse did you ride in on?

What a waste of a good Pinto wagon. Maybe they could use it for cooking hot dogs at a tail gate party.

Given the Pinto's "heated history" I think this is "Firing Back!"

Yup. I zoomed in on the picture I saved. Not 100 % sure which engine. Valve covers look strangely short / flat.
4bl looks to be sitting on an OEM intake.

Its likely a Ford as the dist is up front. Got a Holley carb as the fuel line shows an inlet in two places.

I think this wagon is one of those cars that require you to go fast, then turn off the key, then turn on a spark box to make the tail pipe or in this case the jet engine shoot flames out the back. Use to see it back in the 50's all the time.
