East TN?
« on: January 26, 2013, 03:43:09 PM »
Hey guys, new to the forum. Bought my first pinto this week! Just wondering if there are any pinto shows/swap meets in the East Tennessee area. Thanks for any info.

I don't know about any shows or swap meets in TN, but welcome to the forum! Post up some pics and tell us the story of how you came to own your Pinto!

Thanks guys! I have been racing Ministock mustangs for 8 years now in East TN, and the thought entered my head one day what if I had a street pinto with one if my 2.3 racing motors under the hood? A week on Craigslist and I got lucky enough to find a nice '78 within 20 miles on me. Just gotta put a clutch in. Then only time will tell when I put one of the BIG cam, 9,000 rpm turning motors in.
