That Ranger is all kinds of badass. Pinto is sweet, too.

What's with the "MAP Approved" watermark on the first two images? I'm about an hour from their shop - a force to be reckoned with in the Minnesota performance car arena.

A Pinto with a good 2.3T setup would be riot on the street-- imagine how much heavy-duty chair you could embarass! I used to do pretty well in LA back in the Eighties with an NA 2.3, a Hooker header, and a "Pinto" Weber-- and it wasn't bad at canyon carving with the 205/60's, a rear bar, a 2" drop, and KYB's!
