What Type of Car do You Have?
« on: May 16, 2018, 09:28:55 PM »
Being new to this forum, I was wondering what percentage of people on here have what. I'm sure its overwhelmingly Pinto owners on here, but might be fun to see by how much. If you have more than one...max number of votes per person is 3 in case you have a few.

As far as Pintos, I have two; a gold 1972 Squire wagon and an orange 1974 Runabout.  My "regular" vehicles are a red 2017 Cadillac XTS and a newly (last week) acquired silver 2018 Ford F150 Lariat 4x4.  You left the Runabouts out of your poll - they are different from the sedans.

dga57 What's the basic difference between the roundabout and sedan? The lift-back vs the trunk? If so, I'll put that choice in.

Whittsend, I bet that turbo is kinda cool in that wagon. Probably surprises a lot of people when you punch it!

That's right... the Runabout (not Roundabout) is a hatchback, whereas the sedan had a traditional trunk instead.  Now that you've added it to your poll, I have voted.

Roundabout...l ol oops, typo.

Thanks for the verification Dwayne. When I was reading about the differences, I read that the Bobcat initially had a Sedan too. However it was only available in the Canadian made version. Bobcat Sedans were never produced in the US, only Runabouts and Wagons.

Pintos-
I have a 79 runabout project.
I have a 74 wagon project.

Non Pintos-
I have a 72 Ranchero project (was my daily driver until it had some issues)
And a 2010 Subaru Forester that is the only driver at this point.

RIP Casey, Mallory, Abby, and Sadie. We miss you.

79 Pinto ESS fully caged fun car. In progress. 8inch 4.10 gears. 351C and a T5 waiting to go in.
74 Pinto Wagon.  To be or Not to be a Pinchero, that is the question.

I have my 1977 Mercury Bobcat (it runs but badly)

Also, I have 1958 Chevy Apache but my daily is a 2016 Frontier.

I want to get the Pinto up to be a daily driver.

I have two: a 1976 and 1980 Pinto wagon. I have my 1976 Pinto here in the US and driving the other one only in Greece. It was a nice coincidence actually: I was looking for a property in Athens in 2005 and when I found a proper one the owner of the house said that he also had a 1980 Pinto wagon in the garage which was currently on sale and gave me a very good price which was pretty impossible to reject. So I bought both the house and the car :)
