    I bet heads would turn if someone had even a stock Pinto now in that sort of condition. Amazing how old makes even those things people did not like back when a big hit.

    Last week I saw a very clean dark brown Pinto and the next day a yellow Chevette that was quite clean as well. Weird enough that i noticed.

    I remember back in the day about every 9th or 10th car you'd see was some model of a Pinto ...those things where everywhere ... One guy down the street from us turned a Pinto Wagon into a drag-car ...Shit was goofy looking
