hittin' the big time!!!
« on: November 23, 2013, 09:39:45 AM »
I didn't want to post anything until I was sure,but it looks like my '72 will be on My Classic Car with Dennis Gage. The clip was shot last Labor Day at the Olcott car show in Olcott N.Y.  The segment should air some time in March of 2014,look for it on your local cable or satellite stations. Mr. Gage is a very nice gentleman and easy to talk with. He was surprised how original and complete the runabout is and was really happy to talk with me about it.

Okay... am I the only one who saw Phil's gorgeous green Pinto on "My Classic Car" this morning?  I thought it was a great segment and Dennis Gage seemed totally impressed with the car's originality.  Way to go, Phil!

Thanks to everyone who watched the show. I'm hoping that I did the club proud, and that people out there get to like the car line a lot more! Dianne, keep an eye on his web site. It is episode #15
it should be up in couple of days.

Great show! Not sure why Dennis kept apologizing for doing a story on such a historic car. Did anyone catch "Fast N' Loud" the same day that featured a 1972 mustard colored pinto? No back story to it other than it was purchased with a Bronco.

I watched it on the website last night.

Congrats! That is such a beautiful pinto! I'm amazed at all of the extra details that came with the special order interior. So much nicer and more plush than then the standard trim. I would have ticked that option box!
