MPC Pinto Ridge Runner Modified

Saw this posted here and found one.  Opened it up and started building when the postman dropped it off.  Neat kit.  Stuck on building cars lately :)

 

 

Thanks,

John

That's the highest possible use for a Pinto - cool model!

Great job!

I have built all those modifieds except the Pinto.  Keeping an eye open at flea markets and contests for one.

Great build John. I remember as a kid hanging out at the local cruise night. There was a guy with a Pinto who dropped a 460 in it. And another with a 454 Monza

Yes!  Car guys!  Dropping big v8s in gremlins and Vegas lol.

Thanks for the kind words all.  Nice kit.  No chrome parts, no windows.

Thanks,

John

Looks like a nice kit, great job on it !

I remember back in the early 1960's cutting down 36 and 40 Ford kits into class A stock cars and modifieds using slot car tires for the slicks etc. That's back in the days when they still ran coupes at the local track, now the track is even long gone. Your model still carries that flavor and brings back memories of going to the races and building the models too. Thanks for posting it !

Beautiful finish on that kit and I'm changing gears myself.

Really nice build! I'm ready to jump in it and do some laps at my local track.
