Returning to the Pinto world

john hamilton:
I've finally scratched an itch I've had since 1985 and bought another Pinto.  I bought my first car when I was in the Air Force, a 1972 Pinto with a 289 V8 and a 4 speed.  I loved that car, but it was destroyed in a hit-and-run accident, and I never could replace it.  I finally bought the (new) 1971 Pinto from a member here and I'm looking forward to the project.  I still haven't decided to go V8 yet, but I'm leaning that direction.  I also build and road race MGB's, I have a 4 cylinder car and I've just finished a Rover V8 swap on another, so I'm not new to fabrication.  I use the forums to gather information, so I'll be leaning on you guys pretty heavily.  So, here we go again!  Thanks!

71/73 Pintos are harder to install V-8's due to the shorter engine bay. 74/80 Pintos are much easyer with its larger and longer engine bay. Think it out really good before you cut!
