I have been using my 77 sedan as a daily driver for almost three weeks since it is cheaper on gas than my 08 Grand Prix  >:( . I get many looks and even got a mid to late 90s Monte Carlo to slow down, honk his horn & give me a thumbs up. That car is so sluggish most the time people are giving me the finger when they tailgate me & eventually pass me.

When My 72 racer actualy was licensed for street use, I drove to autocross events. On one return trip from Sacto to Napa, I engaged a  modified Corvette owner in a strategic "cat and mouse" chase thru Sunday afternoon traffic, I won and he made point of coming alongside and gave me the BIG thumbs up! Of course, this was highly illegal and I'm sure shockeda few commuters too! ;)

Almost everytime I drive the car people ask me about it and talk to me about how they had one and ran it for 100,000 miles etc. I talked to a guy who lives in my town with a '67 Mustang and he started talking about my car as he had seen it around. ( I had my big truck at the time).  Pintos are amazing conversation items. BTW Matt, a VW bus is much slower up a hill than our Pintos!

i put a new head on mine one morning and wasout for a 'test' drive on the 60 freeway in the la area. stopped at a Denny's for breakfast.
 
the onramp to the freeway was a bit over 1/4 mile long; a sweeper to the right as it merged. i was going about 105 when i merged and as it turned out, the only rubber necker that noticed was a CHP guy that i finally noticed about another mile down the road!
 
he was a pinto fan.  had one at home and couldn't have been more enthusiastic about talking to me about how dam fast i had it going.  (he said he was at 110 and accellerating)
 
moral of the story? run fast on the track ond NOT on the street.  by the way. he didn't write me up!

At least 2 a day as I drive my 76 trunk type as a daily driver. The previous owner did a rattle can black paint job with 2 red stripes. So SHINEY IT IS NOT. I have had people stop dead in the middle of an intersection to yell "A PINTO' while giving me a thumbs up.

I successfully drove my 78 Pinto from Dallas to Ocean Springs, MS and back for Cruisin the Coast 2013.  Almost every place I stopped at had someone that would talk to me about the Pinto they used to have or were amazed that I had one still running.  Even with all the nice classic hot rods someone would yell out "hey! A Pinto!"  I lost count of how many times someone took a picture of me.  I wonder how many Facebook pages I'm on.  My dad suggested that we put a sign on the back that says "Tell us your Pinto story".  We even have a friend to video it so look for us next year on YouTube.

A couple of years back a guy came racing around me on the freeway in a baby blue mid '70s Pinto wagon, it looked in pretty good shape. I was the rubber necker there and just as he passed and got up a ways he popped a tire.......... .............. ...LOL, at least for a fractional second........ ......in the next, the heavy wirewheel looking hubcap came loose (uh oh!) and vaulted high in the air where the wind caught it and I spent the rest of the time watching it fall towards me while taking evasive action. Man that cover went at least fifty feet up. Looking in traffic behind me swerving all over the same way I saw the cover crash down on empty space thankfully. Needless to say I thought more about the driver than the car after that, as is why the ?$!(!!? did you !?@%!!?.............. ....I gave a seconds' thought to going back and offering to buy the now stranded car, maybe he was disgusted with it, you never know. But the almost getting sashed by the wheel cover did for me and I could only think 'you idiot' all the way home.

I get more looks than the high dollar exotic euro cars in the area.  Biggest joy i get is seeing people smile when they see it.  If only in passing, they smiled once that day.

I bought this wagon last year as a daily driver but soon realized it was something special. As my third wagon my wife who hates it doesn't understand why so many people thumbs up or walk up and ask me about it. I've had dozens of pics taken of it. Some have said it was the nicest looking VEGA they've seen. UGH!!!

I have two, my trunk model '79 got at least 2 a week just bombing around town. Lots of primer and a jacked stance in the back end. Plus it is pretty loud. But the second I put my '79 pinchero truck conversion on the road it's been 3-4 a day like clockwork. People think it's a dodge rampage or a Datsun, even had one guy ask if it was a left hand conversion of an Australian RHD Ute!

I also have an ex road race car that I drive on the street.  Tons of looks and thumbs up even from the younger crowd. The cops no longer pull me over thinking I don't have insurance as well.   Boy times have changed.  But even at that, no ladies will ride around in it.  Maybe I need to lower my standards.

I get a lot of people looking at the pinto, but I also get people looking around for "what is making that rumble?" It can take a second before they realize, yeah, it's that pinto. I also tend to draw attention at the gas station... fuel cell. It prompts all the classic exploding tank jokes. Yeah, hahaha. Just try to  catch this bumper, let alone hit it.

Mine definitely gets a lot of thumbs up and waves.  It also gets a lot of import guys staring intently at their gauges when I rumble up next to them at a light.  Veeeeeery focused on those gauges for some reason.  Won't break eye contact with them.  Can't imagine why..... ;D

On my way home the other day someone in a late-model Ford Fsomething was caught taking pictures of my ragged little Moxie BluBelle as we merged onto the freeway in Carlsbad (California). lol At the Costco in Carlsbad a few weeks ago a guy in a big black GM SUV asked me if I wanted to sell Moxie. I said no... then he asked me what she was worth if I wanted to sell her. I told him I put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into that car, so she's priceless... then told him to contact Pinto Barn. I hope he does. He said my ragged old Pinto is a classic.  :D
