LOL! When on earth was this rap video made?

I hear "Wow! We had one just like that!" a lot. Then they ask how many miles. So I tell them over 377'000 original miles.. they usually just stare.

Got a note yesterday under the wiper, asking if I want to sell my Pinto, and if so, here is his number.
If I wanted to sell it I'd have a For Sale sign in the window, right?
I think I'll make a sign and put it on the dash.  It would read: "Learn to admire without having to acquire. In other words, it's not for sale."
Last week a guy follows me into the parking lot, I park the Pinto, and he parks by my rear bumper. The statement he was making seemed to be, you ain't going anywhere until you talk with me about this car!
I drive into our driveway and a guy in his golf cart drives in right behind me to talk about my Pinto. Another guy flags me down to tell me he once had a Pinto. I asked him if he wishes he still had it, and he said yes.
I think our baby blue Pinto will stay in the family.

I was in the Cruising Wagon stopped at a light with a nice newer Mustang in front of me, a guy in the parking lot yells over, "Hey! What is that?"  I said "A Pinto!" He goes "A Pinto? Man that is bad a$$! Can I get a picture?" I said "Sure thing" and gave him the thumbs up. He snapped a pic and gives me a thumbs up and says "Cool car man!" While this is going on l see the guy in the 'Stang glancing in his mirrors. The light turns green and the guy in the Mustang revs his engine and barks the tires as he takes off. I guess he was upset that his new $40k Mustang wasn't getting any attention? Happens all the time!  ;D
If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?
