SPOTTED: Here Is A Ford Pinto That Hasn't Burst Into Flames

The Ford Pinto, much like the Chevrolet Corvair, has gotten a bad rap over the years.

A few cases of cars being rear-ended and bursting into flames has put a cloud over what was a pretty neat little car.

Thankfully, some people are still out driving them. Our friend Jack Lind saw this cool green one in Monmouth, NJ down near the shore.

In a way, the Pinto was Ford’s Gremlin: It wasn’t particularly attractive, quick, or good, but it had a committed cult following that continues until today.
