        First car I drove, only car I stole. But good lord, do I hate the paint on that one...

              I like the color for the paint, but did he have to make the text match its color?

                I was wondering the same thing

                That car is awesomeness
                Rumors of my demise by rollover have been greatly exaggerated.

                      Easy, Squirrel...yeah, it's a Pinto, but so what? Great front end, can take a V8 (preferrably one that isn't the original one), manual trans...it's good in my eyes. Plus, size-wise it's pretty decent.

                      But whoever gave that guy four gallons of Lime Twist Green paint needs to be mauled by a mountain goat with distemper.

                        this one has a 95 Mustang engine..should be in the 215hp range...should be a little more fun....

                          Maybe in '74, by '78 they were even lamer.

                          That looks to be one of the wilder, but stock color combos. I had a school chum that drove one. Couldn't do a burnout on a hockey rink.
