Why did the quite manufacturing the Pinto?
Remember the Pinto? That little two-door vehicle with the hatchback in the 70's? Why did the quit manufacturing the little car? Who was the manufacturer? I remember when our family bought one and it drove forever.
My wife had one, it was Ford. I recall it had issues with when being hit from behind in an accident and the gas tank would explode. Apparently the gas tank was badly positioned and I am sure Ford dropped it quickly to avoid paying massive legal bills.
It was a Ford. Ford quit manufacturing them because when they suffered a rear end collision, the gas tank exploded.
Evidently, exploding gas tanks are not good for sales.
Ours caught on fire when I was a kid. Crappy car. It was not the fuel tank, it was the faulty wiring.
Ford made the Pinto. The car got the reputation of being unsafe because of lawsuits resulting from all the deaths in rear-impact fires.

I would be my Ford Ka - easy on the eye, nippy, needs little attention and best of all, cheap.

Why Did We Let The Politicians Sell Out America???Do you know that it was both parties, the Republicans and the Democrats who voted for NAFTA and sent America's Textile Jobs out of the United States. We need to stand up as an American people and say to hell with the Republicans and the Democrats....
