I have three. Wife drives the 07 Saturn Ion, I split between the two Ford Pintos. Saturn has a 2.2l ecotec with the auto transmission.
1973 Ford Pinto Station Wagon off and on during the summer, roll and restore, need some body work to pop out a dent in the fender and a paint job. Everything else is done. 2.0l 4 cylinder (same motor as in the early capri's) with the Ford C4 3 speed automatic.
Primary is a 1978 Ford Pinto Sedan that was my mom's first car. Everything has been done to it, including paint but that was awhile ago. Need to repair some small rust in the quarters and it needs another paint job. My brother painted it in autobody class in highschool. That was 12 years ago and the clear coat is de-laminating now. :( 2.3L 4 cylinder with the original 4 speed transmission, upgraded 8" rear axle with 3.10:1 gears.
They've never left me stranded and never seen a true shop since I've owned them, aside from Les Schwab for alignments. I do everything mechanical, body and electrical myself.
