On a scale from 1-10
« on: June 28, 2014, 01:31:21 PM »
What do ya think?

I just purchased this !974 Pinto Wagon for 2k. I know, I know i probably overpaid, but sometimes i just don't care about getting a better deal when i think something is just so cool. Ive wanted one for quite a while so when one of these beauties popped up on my local CL I had to jump on it. As of now all it needs is a new radiator.  A little bit of rust on the bottom. I guess its pretty good considering it was a midwest car. Enjoy.

You kidding? You didn't overpay at all! That's an awesome looking Pinto.

Good luck with it, I love the wagons! The color looks great also!

 I paid double that amount for my '72 Squire - I'd say you did okay!

That wagon looks awesome! If it runs good and has very little or no rust issues, then you did NOT overpay! Congratulation s on this beauty! I love that color!

One can never have too many Pintos!
