Sad, but true. Makes me feel old now ;-) But seriously, in making phone calls to look for parts, and when I had to rent the tow dolly to bring the donor home, and just recently talking to the battery reps, when asked "make and model" I say " '78 Pinto" . On several occasions I have received immediate chuckles instantly when I say that. There is some memory floating around of this ex- flame ball :) We'll see what people remember about it now after it kicks their ass at the track :)

Anchorage, Ak.
