2016 is actually the Ford Pinto's 45th Anniversary.  Hope that was just a typo!

I agree with Dwayne... the 40th anniversary was in 2011...




I hope I can make it this year. Last year was the first time I couldn't go since 2009. Ruby RedHot has two very bad leaks from her oil pan (one is a definite crack, the other might be a crack, but it's right by the drain plug- that's the worst leak. oil steadily drips out, and I can't find a 1.6 oil pan. Moxie BluBelle, the '74 Squire, is having electrical (and other) issues, and had funny clutch issues last year.  Money has been scarce too.  Still, I miss hanging out with the Pinto Peeps and gazing lovingly at all the Fords.  I'm hoping this year will be better. 
One can never have too many Pintos!

Hey everyone, as this is the 45th anniversary of the Ford Pinto, Racer X has been able to acquire eight spots for featured vehicles to be parked in front and center. We have some additional open spaces and are looking primarily for stock vehicles, original or restored, to fill the spaces however many of you have incredibly beautiful cars that would be up for consideration by the council in the event that the vehicles are customised. If you would like to have your car featured please email us at:


pintopower@hotmail.com


and cc


mamota00@yahoo.com


Send us Photos highlighting your cars beauty, inside and out, as well as information on it's year, special data about the car, and how are you came to own it. Basically, we want to know why this car matters to you. This will be highlighted on a large information placard that will be displayed with the car.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank for posting the like to the Pictures !!

My pleasure. There are also some Pinto pictures in the Autoweek website article on the Fab Fords Forever show, below. They are in the "Gallery Everything Else from Fabulous Fords Forever" pics, towards the bottom of the page. One of the cars in the Autoweek pics is a Pangra wagon. The cars on the grass were in a special area with the new Fords display.
