Who Needs an FXX When You Can Have a Pinto?

Bumbeck just tipped us off to a sweet little orange Pinto wagon on Craigslist in the LA area. We figured it was an appropriate antidote to all of this "FXX on eBay" hysteria that's going on. Apparently, the timing chain quit the team, but for 1200 bucks, how can you really go wrong? The thing's just dying for a 347 stroker motor to turn it into the ultimate white-trash drift machine. And yeah, the faux-wood paneling's pretty much mandatory unless you're gonna give it a psychedelic '70s Himsl & Haas-style paint job with lots of marblizing.
