What reactions to your Pinto do you get?
« on: June 29, 2003, 07:00:44 AM »
I pulled into a gas station and a guy pumping gas on the other side of the island stopped and came over. He said he hasnt seen a Pinto in years. Pintos are few and far between here in the NorthEast. He talked about a panel cruiser that one of his friends had.

Seems like everyone has owened a Pinto or knew someone that did. Most of the time the comments are great. I here a lot of "I beat that car and it just kept on going".  ;D

What have you heard?

Man I hear that same stuff all the time! I even had a guy walk into my garage when I was working on mine and start yapping about a pinto that his parents once had.
The best is when I am sitting at a stop light and some punk pulls up beside me and I can tell that he is smiling and talking about my Pinto. Then the light turns green and I see his face change VERY quickly...in my rearview mirror. ;D

I was talking about trying to find a cruisin' wagon one morning, and this guy told me a few stories about one he had back in the 80's, Everyone I know seems to have a funny story or memory involving one.  When I show most people my car, theyre surprised mostly by the shape its in for being in the back yard for as long as it has.

Everyone I run across always tells me "So and so had one like that..." Funniest thing I ever heard was some Rice boy coming up to me and asking what kinda car it was, and after I replied it was a Pinto, he asked me if it was made by AMC!

Haha I love the reactions people do/say when they see my pinto!

Back in High School when i was restoring people got to see the restore job and complemented me on how "pimp" and sweet it was. Some started calling it the "schagin' wagon"

At the car show I went to with it I remember people telling me how they used to own a Pinto back in the day and how it was a fun little car. Another person joked with me how it had no power, 4 banger and going up a hill, had to get ur passenger out to help push it  :P   And finally a lady came with her husband and commented to him "My dream cars always been a Pinto, but everybody always laughs at me when I tell them it! but I love them so much!"

In college I had to give a speech about myself and blah blah, well it was how I owned a pinto and no sane person would restore one. The whole room started to laugh when I told them that, and I got shouts on how "I've seen the DORF its awesome man!" and "Pinto!" Alot of smiles and laughs.

Mainly I see people in their cars driving by checking out the car with a confused/happy looks on their faces.

I think it was worth all the work just to see people look at the car and just smile at it. Anybody else? Or am I just odd?

Well,  i mostly get people who want to buy pinto. It definately stands out from all the other cars on the road. at least enough that everyone in town knows my car. Including the cops ;) .   and no you dont have to be old to know what a pinto is. i'm only 21 and i've been wrestling with my '72 sedan for almost two years now. Keep with it.
wow.    that almost makes me want to, i dont know, shoot something.

The best reaction I've had was when I had my pinto in a car show.  An elderly man and his 30 year old son came up to me and said that he bought a car like this in 1971 and that his son was conceived in the back seat. He wanted to know if he could buy the car as his anniversary was coming up and he wanted to take his wife out and relive memories...... ..

71pintok Thats funny.

I used to get asked if my 76 MPG wagon was a hearse. I dont think it looks likes a hearse.
Here it is getting washed by my friend George over 10 years ago. It doesnt have the eng. and trans. in it so the front is sitting high.


I would also get asked what the MPG on the fenders stood for. I sometimes said they were my initials.  ;D

when i was in highschool i got alot of mixed comments.. well at my high school most of the cars in the parking lot are 1960's mustangs.. and i had the only pinto... and my girlfriend had the only maverick, so we were recognized for that.. but it was funney cause alot of people thought it was kool having a pinto.. especially cause of howmuch a 4 cyl. can burn tires lol.. but yeah it was fun, but then you would get those people who would be all stupid and like "oh are you gonna blow up if i kick your back bumper?" and then the mustangt owners would get mad and back me up lol but other than that it was kool

I have a friend that is like that.  In the 10 years I have had my Dads wagon, he has rode in the car one time.  My girl friend will ride in it but refuses to drive it anywhere by herself. ::)

I have a fairly clean '80 Squire as a daily driver. I've gotten thumbs up on occasion, gotten the usual, "I haven't seen one of those in years!" and "I used to have one of those!" I know I'm getting old when I go in for parts and the parts person (must be politically correct, you know!) asks me "Who makes that?" after I tell them I need parts for a Pinto!! :-)

I had a guy I work with come up to me one day and ask me "what kind of car is that?"  I told him it was a Pinto and he said "yeah I think I heard of that car before, who is it made by?"  I then asked him what year he was born in. He told me 1979. Now I understand the confused look on his face when I told him what kind of car it was.

I myself have gotten quite a few odd looks and reactions to having a pinto. I get a lot of flak for it from my buddies, but being 18 and having a car that runs, looks good and is in the low mileage range is a reason for some jealousy I think. And I don't spend every weekend patching my car back together so it'll run another 7 days.

But I can't even count how many times I've been driving around town with the windows down, the AM radio cranked and someone at a stoplight says something. The normal is really just "I haven't seen one of those in years." The wierdest reaction I ever got was someone saying "I like your Gremlin." Took some explaining to make them understand the difference between AMC and Ford. But it's cool hearing the standard "oohs", "ahhs", and "Why the hell'd you buy a pinto?"

I'm looking forward to what people will do when they see my turbo convert back on the road.
When I first got it, I had it at the car wash and a lady came up and asked if it was for sale. I said no, but she had one and wanted to get another. They were popular cars at one time.

I then asked him what year he was born in. He told me 1979. Now I understand the confused look on his face when I told him what kind of car it was.

The wierd thing is, some of us born in '79 remember the Pinto quite well. I was born in December of 79, and even when I was not even old enough, I wanted my first car to be a Ford PInto... For granted, my parents owned a 77 Wagon, and it was the family car, so I guess that's why I loved them so much. I was so upset when the engine blew in '89 cuz I wouldn't get to drive it...My parents had told me if it was around when I was 16 I could have it....

Well, I'm now 24, and I will finally have my Pinto. I'm looking at buying a 72 Pinto sedan, and the reaction I am getting is: Why the hell do you want a Pinto?

Because... I do, and I'm glad to see there's others out there who do as well.

LONG LIVE THE PINTO!!! The only good car Ford ever made... excuding the Mustang of course.

i got asked a lot when i bought it at a car auction 'why?? just why?

I got asked that a lot, to which I'd always reply, "to make people like you ask, 'why?'"

I got my first Pinto, a '72, back in '80 and it was my race car and daily driver through the last year of high school and into the first year of college (I had a 429 powered '71 Torino GT as the musclecar at the time, but it didn't go around an autocross course very well, so the Pinto was tapped for that duty). I had a couple others after that, and now I have the two of them over in the Seattle/Bremerton area (a '73 hatch and a '77 trunk model), and my 11 year old stepson wants one as HIS first race car. Most people still ask, "why" when they find out I have one, however, and that somehow makes it all the better. hehehehehe.... ...
I've owned over a hundred cars in the last 25 years.. What the heck was *I* thinking...

My wife hates it & won't have anything to do with it, I've made some friends from  half a block away that have been watching the slow progress of building it, The UPS man ask if it's for sale  every time he comes to deliver my wifes Avon (my wife would sell it to him in a heart beat),  I just picked up a used 5.0 block so my brother can build a 347 stroker for his Mustang and he THINKS he will be able to keep up with it. I have to dodge the old man at the local True Value or he'll keep me there for 20 minutes talking about the 70's and his first Pinto, and my dad just thinks I'm crazy.

People are constantly laughing at mine ;D I've got some cool lettering going across the back that reads... " CAUTION!----EXPLOSIVE!***"

My own reaction when I bought it.  I said to the previous owner, when I was signing paperwork, "I can't believe that I just bought a 1972 Pinto."  

Now I tell people "I'm the proud owner of a 1972 Ford Exploder",  some get it, some don't ;)

I have to get in on this one.  My second car was a 1980 Pinto i bought for $500.  It was in very cherry condition, original owner, 97,000 miles.  but it didnt run.  I tinkered with it for an hour in the old womans driveway and left in cloud of tire smoke.

My favorite reaction was the tailgating issue.  Not even a state patrol officer would tailgate me.....someone would pull in behind me and then give me plenty of room as soon as they saw the pinto on the deck lid.  I miss my old car, I had to sell her in 2000 and cried as she went away.  I got exactly $500 for her when i had offers for $3000......i had to sell her to someone that was not going to cut her up into a dirt track car and kill her, and everyone wanted to.

I am now in the market to buy another.....I have a built 2.3 turbo setup that i have put together.....a nd I will have another Pinto.

I had a guy in a Durango snicker and tell me my blue wagon was a  "nice car" (not meaning it). I told him his Durango wasn't much more than a glorified station wagon. I then wondered aloud what condition his Durango would be in 32 years from now.

He shut up.
I left my Pinto in front of my house last night. This morning there were two more left with it.
