Pinto 45 Years Under Water

The link will tell the story but it was a cold case missing persons matter. Interesting how the roof collapsed around the door frames.

Frankly, for all its lousy reputation, I thought that '74 Pinto held up extremely well under water for 45 years!  The roof did seem to corrode in an unusual manner but I guess that's probably due to the water washing over it for all that time.  Sad story.

So sad indeed.
Both of his parents died never knowing what happened to their only child.
