DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) - Dozens of Pinto enthusiasts will spend the weekend driving their vintage Ford economy cars around the Detroit area as part of an annual event.

The Pinto Stampede is to stop Friday at the Ford Employee Car Show in Dearborn and drive to Hell and back on Saturday. Hell in this case is the village west of Detroit.

Organizers of the fourth annual event say all proceeds from sponsorships and a fundraising raffle will go to the Wounded Warrior Project, which helps disabled soldiers regain normal lives.

The Pinto Stampede already has raised $38,000 for the organization. It runs Friday to Sunday.

According to Pinto Stampede officials, 3 million Pintos were sold from 1971 to 1980, and there are 6,500 members of the Pinto Car Club of America.
