pinto 1600

I got to drive home one of the first Pinto protypes with a 1600 CC engine. I thought what a gutless wonder. My daily driver to Ford was a buick nailhead powered Willys. And the Pinto gas tank problems. The question was asked how much was it going to cost to fix times vehicles to recall VS how much does each lawsuit death cost. The decision was let them burn, it's cheaper. and the 70's ford C6 jumping into reverse and running over people getting out of their cars. I showed how that could happen and was told to be quiet.
