The guy I sold my Pinto to (4 years ago) just sent me a link to a vid of the car.  He bought it from me as a roller. I had always run a small block stick of some sort. The best pass I ever made in it was 5.65. He said he's been a 5.56 with a BBF/auto.

I read an article years ago on those car where the author, can't remember who, stated that in wind tunnel tests on that body, the car was way more aerodynamic going backwards than forwards.   O:)  =; Yup, I can believe that one.

Local guy has a 34 Ford Outlaw car and he made a trailer from Pinto parts.  Took two back ends cut across the tire area and welded them together.  So it has a hatch in both the front and rear.  It's painted like the car is and looks really neat.
