Once Christmas and New Years dies down, Racer Walsh will be getting a call from me. Gonna overhaul the motor in my Pinto including, but not limited to:
-New ported head with Hydrolic lifters and a less radical cam
-New higher compression pistons (.030 over)
-Block bored
-Possibly a LSD with better gears (got 3.00's now, might go 3.55's)
-Possibly a new valve cover

So yeah, not looking forward to that credit car bill, but gotta do it lol

A license plate frame that says "Classic Ford Pinto".

I'm tempted to get one that says, "Ford Pinto: No Tailgating."

While my Pintos arn't getting anything this year, they will be after tax season.

I'm hoping to get enough money back from my refund to get an engine stand and hoist, so I can pull and recondition Brownie's motor, and then use the stand to start building the 302 for the 78!

Rust free quarter panel patches from Fred Morgan, and probably some sort of chemical rust remover to strip the floors back to shiny metal.
