car show
« on: June 07, 2012, 11:08:40 PM »
I finally made it to the car show that I've trying to make it to for three years now. The 31st annual Mustang and Ford car show at Gary Crossley Ford in Liberty Mo. I think it was worth the wait I got a first place plaque and a special thanks for bringing a Pinto. It wasn't the nicest car there but most everyone had to come over and check it out,It's amazing how many people have had pintos in there family's.

 You might want to check out Redline Tuning. They have a kit to install spring/gas assist struts for the Pinto hood. If not, I doubt you would have much trouble locating a stock one.
