Pinto or Corvette?
By Robert McLellan
 

When new, a car enthusiast is likely to save Corvette brochures and not even bother picking up something as common as a Pinto catalog. While Corvettes were getting a lot of attention, Pintos were putting on more miles and servicing our transportation needs. Consequently, more people spent more time in and around Pintos than they did with Corvettes.

If you or your parents owned a Pinto there is bound to be some nostalgia involved. Thirty years later experiences revolving around the Pinto haunt you when you see what is now becoming a rare car. Do a Google search and you will see a surprising amount of interest in these cars. A lot of time spent in the cars means a lot of memories.

Pinto literature is beginning to be collectible and often hard to find. Remember, not many collectors thought about saving it. For now it is relatively inexpensive, but as more collectors look for it prices will rise.

When was the last time you thought about your first car? It probably wasn't a Corvette. Think about the memories.
