Where\'s 89 Coupe?

Thanks guys for missing me but I am busy not only doing the paperwork on selling my house but also putting the Pinto together(which I just got running tonight) and all the inspections and moving involved. I got a NEW windshield for my 68 Falcon wagon and will have it installed tomorrow so I can see out of it during sunrise and sunset (sand pitted). Got all vehicles tagged so NY State can't him haw about not being able to register them there if they weren't registered here. Also I think my wife found a house up there that we want to buy and we'll try to pre-qualify tomorrow even though the sale is still pending on this house here. This house is sold making a 21,000 profit so we should pretty much be out of debt when this is over with and the house she found in NY is 2,100 sq/ft with a 2 car attached garage and a fully finished/heated/insulated 32'x40' 6 car shop in the back with security system which is why we both want this house soo bad and in one of the best and most expensive places around Rochester so the school system should be pretty good too. I was up there for a week during the 4th of July and I never felt so strongly about a place being perfect for me like I did there. Definitely a car nut area. Dark blue skies like I never seen before and in the lower 70s the whole time I was there. Clear lakes and lots of boats. $200-$500 nice late model winter beaters abound everywhere and 2 people said I could have the cars if I hauled them off(one 95 Escort wagon and a 90 Bronco 4wd). I will be there by mid August and if soon enough, I will make Woodward since my wife and kids will be in Europe at that time and I am currently unemployed as of June 2nd(to work on the house to sell) until we get settled in up there in NY. Liberals, suck my black exhaust and sniff my blow-by cause here I come!

BTW, the Pinto really sounds great and will try to race it Wed if I can get some used 28/10.5 or 28/9 slicks by then. Ordering them from Scummit 2nd day air will only get them here Wed evening or Thur morning and that won't do. 395W with 1 point higher compression, 35 more cubes, 4 degrees less duration at .050", more stall, and a full roller 4500 stall c-4 combo compared to my last 351W should make it run pretty good. I'll have pics later.....

Pinto DEFINITELY goes but got to the track to find out the owner never came to open up so it was closed. He use to do that in the past before the track was shut down and it seems he's going back to opening when he feels like it and not when scheduled. NM sucks! Have to wait till Friday and Saturday now. Loooong day.......

Reading about that Pinto makes me miss the one I had!!

1974 Pinto 2.0L

The engine was heavily modified-Esslinger DOHC head, Weber 32mm Sidedrafts and a number of other mods. The engine made 230HP, 300lb-ft at the flywheel, and that little car would eat some of the hotter street cars I came up against.

Have fun with yours!!

Thanks tbirder for the links.

Here are a few pics which were small enough to download on fordmuscle's pic storage. most of mine are between 50.1-57.5kb so it wouldn't let me download them. This site should allow up to 60kb imho. I decided to change the valve covers to the black Ford Racing for more stud guirdle clearance and better sealing. Bought new 28x10.5 slicks in town and paid $20 more each just to have them for Wed night racing and it was cancelled I found out due to not enough spectators and racers showing up so it's now cancelled for Wed nights. Fri and Sat nights are now open from 6PM till Midnight so thats good for a bunch of time only passes while tuning. Looks like I will be moved out by the 12th of Aug so I will fly up bewteen the 13th and 15th and still might make Woodward in time but I'll have to take the Focus(uncomfortable and hurts my back) since my truck won't be up there yet for 5-7 days once movers pick it up.
