It is already running and driveable. Going to hopefully get it licensed and insured today.

I've seen a Pinto in the Denver area that someone had done a flame paint job on it except the flames started at the rear and curled along the side of the quarter panel towards the front.

I'm . Despite all of the crap people talk about Gremlins, I like them. And Pintos, too. I remember my dad's Pinto. He had it until I was like 7 or 8. When he wrecked it, we took the rear dif and built a trailer on it.

I'll pass lol. The whole gas tank thing scares me away from them. Will stick with the Citation.

Still waiting to drive the Citation, uncle and aunt had to notarize the title and are sending it my way. Should be here in the morning then I can go get the car licensed and insured then go put some miles on it! Top the tank off and see what kind of mileage the old Iron Duke 4 banger can put out.

Put about 100 miles on the car and topped it off, calculated mileage and came out to 24mpg, all city driving! That's not bad at all for what I am used to, Tacoma doesn't even get that on the highway..
