I like it. I have one like that for my wagon & the '79-'80 style for Callisto. It would look even better body color or at least satin black.

I normally wouldn't voice an opinion, but since you asked... I don't like it.

Looks good, so where did you get it....And what's up with the wide stripes on the side of the Pinto.....Not stock, or at least it's missing on one  left front fender side....Rubber armor ? Hell you have more steel in that fender than most cars have in their engines......

Like the spoiler but ditch the bumper or go with the 71-72 bumper.

Well, that's certainly an improvement over the orange!  Other than the larger tires/wheels, your Pinto appears to have looked bone stock prior to adding the spoiler.  Unless you're planning other modifications, I still think I'd ditch the spoiler... it just doesn't add anything to the car.  Just my two cents worth.  Bottom line, it's YOUR car and YOUR decision.

I like it. I used one on our car because the radiator hung so low it looked weird without it. But like the other guys have said, it's your car, it needs to be what you want! I'm a black sheep, I like the big bumpers! But I'm glad some folks don't or we'd all have the same looking car!! That why they make so many flavors of ice cream too!
Everyday is a gift! Live it to the fullest with no regrets!
