Most Unsafe Car Ever?Never mind the fact that this is a Ford Pinto, a car that has been plagued by safety issues throughout its life, most notably a serious rear fire hazard. No, it's the incredible state of disarray that this Pinto was found in that makes it perhaps the most unsafe car we have ever come across.
The driver of the Pinto (yes, it drives) was pulled over by a Minnesota State Trooper and was cited for unsafe equipment and driving without a license. The car was then impounded.

Nah, the car is just showing a little bit of what they call "Patina." Looks something like my old 92 Ford Ranger I finally gave up this past January.

Whats the Problem. The Pinto was in fact very unsafe and had a high likelihood of fire from rear end collisions. This driver has eliminated the problem all together. and the state should pay him look what the salt on the roads of Minnesota has done to his poor car.

Heck, that's a typical car around here...

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

I was stuck in an old pinto for a few months once, I had to hold the driver's seat up with a PR-24. The guy must have a PhD in Redneck Repair, though!"My motivation is slipping, people bug me, and I'm tired of wasting my time on drivel."

I showed my dad these pics. He was impressed with the level of desperate genius behind this. Especially the gas tank.
