I'm 18, my mom bought this Pinto2 at an auction in Springfield, IL for 50 dollars in 1988, and its been sitting at my grandma's house for most of those 20 years. I'm going to be a student at the University of Illinois, and since i dont really like walking, i asked my grandma if i could have it and she said ok. I considered it a mini-engineering program to get me ready for U of I's rigorous engineering program. I got it up and running, then i snapped the frayed throttle cable on accident. My girlfriend's dad is a mechanic so together me and him manufactured a new cable and got it running just in time for college. Not to mention the hassle of applying for a lost title and all that jazz.
