We have a blue '78 hatchback....w ould have loved to have been the buyer, but garage space is the issue.
Curious as to what you were able to sell it for...

Sky,

Normally I would be hesitant to congratulate someone for selling their Pinto... especially after owning it for 43 years!  In this case however, I applaud your decision; while your health isn't allowing you to enjoy your car, you still care enough about it to turn it over to a new owner.  I'm glad you found a worthy custodian to care for your Pinto.  Congratulation s!

I always tell people that I am not the owner, but a  current caretaker of the Pinto I have in my care!  :-)
