Pinto in CarCraft
« on: October 10, 2010, 04:30:55 AM »
Page 77 of the December 2010 issue shows a 77/78 Pinto. The caption in the photo says "Yeah, it's a brown Pinto, you got a problem with that?"

You had to really look hard to see it though.
But, if it was my car I would have been proud!

I'm guessing it was derogatory... about them being "junk" or "blow-up exploding cars". If so then I agree with you... the guy is an arsehole.  :showback:   AAAAARRRRGGGGH HHH!!!!!

LOL! Sorry about the late post! I just saw that episode. It was an award for Pinto Sales man of the month or something from 1972 or something. Id love to have that award to put on my shelf with all the other Pinto Cool stuff. I still like the show though. I do alot of restorations on ole gas pumps, fire hydrants and stuff. Kenny

Actually, Cheese, it was an award for 1979 salesman of the year. The '72 awards looke way different... (drool). Onre of these days I'm gonna get a scan of the early award from my Breyer (collectible horses and other animals) book. It's SO cool!
