Who would have ever though..., Nigeria the place for obscure Pinto/Mustang II parts!  It's like they are one big warehouse for EVERYTHING!!!  And to think that the people of a generally poor, impoverished country would be willing to share wealth out of nowhere with us wealthy Americans. Why it almost seems too good to be true. Almost. Can I get on their Email list too?

Got a set of Headman Headers - but you need front mounts to use them. Been thinking of selling one set I have. Not cheep though....and shipping from Alberta may be too steep for most.

Always ask for their Pinto club name. That stops them ever time.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.

How about requiring only PM replies through the forum?
That is what I would do here anyway. That way at least you know they are a member here.
