      my grandparents had a pinto up until they died about 5 or 6 years ago. my uncle drove that thing and a buddy he went to high school with had one as well. grand father also had an old school road runner for damn near ever.

      Oh I had a pinto with a 302 V8 in it. It handled like a rowboat on top of a rollerskate. the old worn out front suspension would bottom out on the shocks and springs on the smallest bumps and it had so many exhaust leaks that you had to drive with the windows down or you would die from asphyxiation. Also it was not real fast as it was a 150 hp 2 barrel carb 302 not the hi-po.

      3 on a tree, I had a 65 ford PU with 3 on the tree. I broke the shifer off trying to speed shift. I cut a hole in the floor above the trans and installed a "Universal" hurst shifter. It would get stuck between gears ever time I tried to shift so I left it in 2nd and just used 2nd and 3rd gears. I had no 1st and no reverse.

      It was the truck I took my wife on our first date back in 91'. It was a hull bucket but she went out with me again and been together 30 years.

      She learned on my 89' Ranger pickup with a standard.

      I modded the stock air box to draw in more filtered cold air. polished the throttle body, and a tuner friend added a cool 87 octane tune with firmer shifts.
      Oh man I can get a little side ways going into 2nd and get rubber in 3rd and 4th
