New Ford Pinto
« on: November 05, 2012, 01:18:17 PM »
Greetings,

Found a video on youtube that eludes that Ford might be bringingg back the Pinto. Do you think that Ford would do this? Looking at their line-up I could see them releasing a sub-compact car. Something to compete against the Toyota IQ or the Smart Car. At Beijing Ford intorduced the Start concept. Look at the links below and tell me what you think.

I like it, I need a commuter, if Ford makes it happen (here in the states) I'll add it to my 3 Pintos and my 2012 EcoBoost F150...
Looking at your screen name, and this being your first post, sure makes me think you might know more about this........

Yea, what DO you know?

I can't see Ford using the Pinto name again. But.. If you think about this for a sec.., they could use the stigmatizm surrounding the Pinto as a 'jumpin off' point where they could beat the media at their own game.. They will be so busy     Covering the 'pinto' story which would drive eyes to their new product- the would have a fantastic head start. They would need to address the older issues and with our help debunk and re-popularize the pinto with new fervor.

Wow, what did I say?

After they make them and the parts start showing up in wrecking yards we can go get parts off them and put on our old ones. Ecoboost turbo in my 72 sounds good.
1972 Trunk Model..... Yeller Feller
1979 Wagon Turbo.... 85 2.3 Turbo
1923 T- Bucket ...... 2.0 Pinto Powered
F 250 Redneck Lincoln .... Pinto Picker upper

I watched the vid & first thought was, it is a joke. As in ha ha funny.

I think the odds are better winning the lottery, than Ford bringing back the Pinto.

I'm afraid I'm inclined to agree with you, Derrick.  There are too many negatives associated with the Pinto name.  We all know that the bad publicity was unwarranted and erroneous, but the stigma remains.  I don't think we'll be seeing any new Pinto.
