I really hope a lot of our West coast Pinto people can make it for the Summer Pinto Beach Cruise! It is looking like we will have twice the number of people and cars this year from last year's inaugural run!!!!!!! I'm going to pump up the planning a bit this year since the turnout is higher, so any fun ideas are invited. We could have a hatchback vs wagon owner's volleyball game... hahhahahaha
Last year was a really fun and relaxing, low key, chilled out event which involved the meet up, the cruise, and a day at the beach with Pintos parked at the boardwalk, fire pit, food, sun and everything else that goes with a California beach day. I have extra Pintos to drive if someone wants to attend, but doesn't have a Pinto to drive, that's fine. The all day entry to the beach park last year was $15 per car all day, if you have a state park beach pass you're covered. I will have ice chests, drinks, canopy tent ( If someone wants to bring one more we might need it), firewood, etc. Please feel free to bring something tasty, maybe some sides, or desserts, or anything special to eat ;-)) Contact me here or email me at thepintobarn@yahoo Hope to see you all this August 10th!         Steve

A.alves, I would like to hook up and shoot the breeze with you someday about the club. I can't make it to the Beach run on account it's my 40th wedding anniversary. (We arrived at the church & left the church in a Pinto!) I still live in so-cal. Let's try to set up a time to meet

I recognize a few of them! And you look familiar too! Can't tell if my car was in any of those pics you sent. We will hook up some day soon and take a closer look at the prints. THANKS!

Andy, so far about half of my list is confirmed, so far there's 15 Pintos ,  but it easily could get into the 20's or more, we'll see.

I want to add some info about the 2014 Summer Pinto Beach Cruise...
This is especially for those who were not there last year....
First, feel free to bring some food/drinks, sunscreen, hats, anything beach related, and a smile!! It was kind of a pot luck affair last year and worked out great .....
So we meet up in the morning at the Pinto Barn in Costa Mesa. 1760 Monrovia Ave 92627 . after we've had a chance to meet and greet we can line up and do the cruise up PCH (if any Pintos are having issues before the cruise, Joey and I and probably a bunch of others will do some fix it's or repairs to whatever needs arise)...
We will do an Ocean Cruise North on Pacific Coast Highway to Seal Beach and the turn back around and loop back towards Huntington and then the group will turn at Sea Point and loop through the back edge of Huntington and then cruise down Main Street in Huntington. This is a slow cruise section with a lot of surprised gawkers and was really a fun part of last year's ride. At the end of the Main street cruise we will turn left (South) onto PCH again and drive down to the main gate of the Huntington Beach State Park at Magnolia Ave. The all day admission is $15 per car unless you already have a California State Park pass. There are good bathrooms, showers, parking, fire pits, volleyball setups, sand and ocean. The Pinto party goes as long as you guys feel like hanging out at that point it's all fun and games.......

It was a ton of fun last year. This year we're pushing it up to be better! I'll have some Pinto stuff like stickers and what nots to give away, and anybody attending can get a Summer Cruise T from me for $10. They are SWEET!!!! I promise you, they came out nice ......
