    I saw a Pinto

    Yep I saw an orange Pinto going down the street in Fredricksburg Tx today it was nasty looking like it had set under trees for years. The hood, roof, trunk were black with tree sap & dirt. It moved along good though I was surprised I thought they were extinct.

    What this country needs is a department of common sense! The tree of liberty would be a great place for hang mans ropes!

    There is one in my area, light blue with the white top. Sits outside at a home about 1/2hr from me. 1st time I seen it I almost had a wreck looking at it

    They drive it once in a while and it looks dang near new condition. No kidding....

    The very first car that I bought with my own savings was a Pinto. Paid $400 for it back in the mid 80s.

    73 and on was certainly not the glory years for cars. My family had a 70 Dart that was rusting out with holes in fenders and around the rear spring shackles. I am surprised that any pinto is still drive-able today.

    I had a '72 Dodge Dart and loved it! That 318 engine in a light little car would fly!

    Ha, when I saw the title of this thread I though you were talking about a Pinto revolver - Two tone Nickel cylinder and blued frame Now the car I don't want, but I sure would like to own the revolver.
    Love me some 45-70's
