    Love the Pinto "sedan delivery". Always wanted to take a wagon and chop the back half of the top off and call it a "Pinchero" :rolleyes: :D

    Yeah that is the long term plan for the window wagon. My dad bought it new in 79. I bought a 86 Turbo coupe a few years back and stripped it of its drivetrain. The motor and turbo need to be rebuilt but I have almost everything to do the swap but time :rolleyes: Anyway, the original 2.3 still runs good so I am in no hurry. I just bought an old Jetboat so I will probably sell the porthole once I get it all fixed up.

    I bought this one from a friend of mine that lost interest in it. He transplanted an 85 SVO motor and 5spd in it. The only problem is that it is carborated instead of fuel injected. It runs real rich at an idle and leans way out under boost :( Not a lot of fun to drive at the moment. I originally bought the car to for the motor and turbo since they are both rebuilt and was going to part the rest of the car out. I decided to keep it since the small bumper cars are getting quite rare and hard to find in good shape. When I get some time, I will plan on installing the fuel injection from the Tbird. It should be pretty sweet when I am done with it :D

    Here's my daily driver/winter beater, a 1996 Probe GT. When I put on the 15" steel wheels and knobby tires it's great in the snow.
