I had a 79 scooter when I was a senior in high school in 87. It was an automatic and did have carpet. It was a black interior with body color steel in most places it wasn't cardboard and plastic. It did have silver painted bumpers, as well as an AM radio and no globe box door. I found a set of for lug Cragars I put on it to be funny. It was a great car...and gas station stops were to check the gas and fill the oil. It leaked oil from everywhere something fierce. The no door glove box almost got me in trouble. I had a bag of plaster of Paris for an ecology assignment and was pulled over for a cracked windscreen. He saw that bag and almost had a cow. Ohio staties have been very good with me and once he found out we had a good laugh about it. I was one scared seventeen year old though!
Very nice mj! It looks nice in red. Horsepower, I would loved to have seen the full size builds of both the II and the Pinto. I have seen a few of the v8 Mustangs here, both stock and built...but I have only seen one built Pinto. I saw it driving and so didn't get to actually check it out. I bet both of them were a blast to drive too. You rarely see them with the built up 6 so I bet that was cool too.
