Change the hoses and belts! Mine started failing after a thousand miles and it only had 6446 miles at the time! Cheap insurance for a great find.

Im really glad another Pinto enthusiast picked it up.  I had(and still have) a 1980 Rallye that was identical except red interior that was my first car.  Mine had been beaten to a pulp and is rusted out and just a parts car now (remember I was 16 when I got it).  I seen this and I couldn't stop drooling.  If I had money, I would have been all over it.  I was trying to talk the wifey into letting me get it when I was emailed that it was sold.  Really glad someone on here got it so I can at least drool over photos!  Take care of her man!  What a great find and great purchase!  Looking forward to any and all photos posted of this gem.

The basis for Lavern and Shirly LOL!!!! A few of the buildings have been torn down but a lot of them are now expensive offices. The main offices are really cool and still have the original woodwork from way back.

I know this is hardly Pinto related but when did Schlitz go out of business, where they bought out?

Schlitz Brewery was americas #1 Brewer till about 1957 then Budweiser became #1 , Schlitz #2. The Brewery shut down in the Early 80's. THe Brand/Label was sold..the recipe is still being made and Sold by a smaller Brewery in US in certain areas. What killed Schlitz was when Miller came out with Lite Beer Label. Americas taste had changed, to people wanting a lite body Beer........Ki rk
