Pinto/ Bobcat spotting
« on: August 29, 2011, 08:24:33 PM »
Hey guys,
I was on the freeway driving home from work when I spotted a pair of tail lights & big window. Looked like a Bobcat hatchback, so I sped up a little to get a closer look. Sure enough it wasa 78 Bobcat hatchback. It was yellow, gray primer on a recently fixed rear window, with black  on the lower rear quarter panels right behind the front door. It looked in good shape & looked like it had little rust. I'm not sure of the entire condition but I noticed it was only going 55 mph. Reminded me of my Pinto since it would be about 7-10 mph off as well. Couldn't get a pic as I was driving but I'm gonna look for that car again when I go home. I thought about driving my Pinto today & now I wish I did lol.
