Nope, not me. I never drove a Pinto. I believe a car should fit your personality. I have always had cars that are classy. I say UT buys her a La Bomba Mobile.

Pinto's:
They Tow
The Off road
You can put your bag in them

But NOBODY!!!NOBODY has ever gotten lucky from driving a pinto!

C'mon man, it UT's kid. We all gotta look out for her.
Boys are bad, dont do drugs, stay away from anyone named Stinsen!

I think I've found the perfect one. This fine example is for sale at fordpinto.com. It's even available with the highly coveted rag top!

Only when hell frezes over will I drive in your ulgy green home with the matching rims.
Kohldog that is a rather high quality saddle bread mare and colt. FYI UT will get the skater when he talks Mrs Toys into it which will likely be in a few yrs.

This is a tuff one!! Lets see I think you should get a GMC extended cab short bed with a sleeper to throw your stuff inside. Get a 4X4 you will always get your money back on resale and sell it faster. Is your horse trailer goose neck? Depending on what you are towing you might want to get a 2500 for the better brakes and what not. Good luck and never forget ALL BOYS ARE PIGS!!!!

Princess, find out what Troutly is standing next to - they obviously don't hold up well. You don't want one of those.

Trout, what the heck is that little blue ball of tinfoil? What happened? (Short bus... hmm, was one of the STUDENTS driving it?)

what are you talking about, The hemi is the standard motor for all 2500 series and up trucks, the only other V8 engine for the 1500's will be the 4.9L when they use up the inventory on all the 5.9L. in stock. The Hemi was only a $700 option over the standard equipment. I don't find that bad for an engine that is over 100HP more than the smaller 4.9L and more horse power than the Big chevy and the ford v10. with much better fuel economy. its even better on gas than the 5.9 that it is replacing. So you will get your $700 back in fuel savings over time.
There is nothing worse than an under powered vehicle, especially a truck.

I'd get a Chevy 2500 ext cab with a 6.0L. 1500 is nice but if you go with the 2500 you'll have room to grow.

Little Princess,

Say HI to dad. I haven't spoke with him in a while. I hope you and the fam had a good holiday. Might I suggest to you the Chevy 1500HD. This is a LOT smoother than the 2500HD and has 4 full doors. It is a beautiful truck with plenty of towing capacity yet maintaining the smooth the ride. Engine options are varied. I would say the 5.3 litre is all you will probably need, however the 6.0 Litre is a nice package. Forget teh 8.0 litre. That is way overkill. They are really nice trucks. 4WD is a must. Even if you use it only a few times per year, when you need it, it is great to have it. Best of luck and congratulations.
