    My little pony - '72 Pinto Sedan.

    Sold my TR7 V8 back at the beginning of the year and replaced it with "something more sensible". T'other half had a bike accident and the TR just couldn't carry enough stuff to make camping comfortable... didn't plan on not going anywhere due to Covid - 19. Oh well...

    Anyway, the replacement... I wanted something different, cheapish, cheap to run (so we could actually afford to use it), modern enough to be easy to live with, cheap available spares, and big enough to carry our new luxury sized tent and all our kit!
    So, here it is... a 1972 Ford Pinto Sedan. Two litre four pot with a manual four speed, in "Deluxe" trim giving a two spoke steering wheel, tinted windows and... opening rear windows, or "pop outs" as the Yanks refer to them.

    Not the most exciting, and it's a bit of a shed (albeit a solid one), but it's quite fun and I'm improving it all the time... we now have lights, wipers and all manner of civilised niceties...

    Cheers, so easy to live with...
    Bought it to go to loads of events, but they haven't happened, so it's been used "as a car"! We've taken it shopping, when we've been out on local walks, visiting... Now that I've replaced a few bits and serviced a few others, it's settled down, and got a thousand miles under its wheels it's proving to be quite a useful tool.
    Santa Pod this weekend... and, "NO" I'm not taking it up the strip...

    I have never understood why the "retro" crowd have never jumped on stuff like this, its cool as fk IMO, they have always been a Marmite motor to some but I have always though they would be cool with a 302 and a stick shift.
    I like
