Ford Pinto owners coming to Rockford Sept. 9-11
James Madison, owner of the Bullet Stop Gun Shop, is a proud Ford Pinto owner who participated in the Pinto Stampede, which started in Denver and was just completed in Carlisle, Pa. Now, a group of Ford Pinto owners are bringing their cars to Rockford to camp at Rock Cut State Park to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. They will attend a local car show and stop at Anderson’s Rock River Ford to receive donations. You can see them the weekend of Sept. 9-11 at Anderson’s Rock River Ford, 226 N. Alpine Road.
The Pinto Stampede was started two years ago as a drive across the country to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Ford Pinto. This year, the Pinto owners wanted to include a charity drive to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, which provides programs and services to severely injured service members during the time between active duty and transition to civilian life. They have a number of programs to nurture the mind and body, and encourage economic empowerment. Contributions are tax deductible.
