As for the gas can in the front seat, he should have reminded the Trooper that Pinto gas tanks explode often (sometimes for no reason) so this way he can keep an eye on it. Also, a Pinto is a horse and you don't need a license to ride a horse...Duh!. As far as the rough appearance of the Pinto, no worries, it'll buff out... ;)

funny thing about it, my bobcat was just as bad, almost. I had a gas tank like that in the back of my wagon, and holes in the floor almost as bad. I put boards over the holes though, and never got caught either.
yeah, I'm Krazi!

that is funny. at list he had a boat gas tank, is a bit more safer than just any regular gas tank.
now driving with the floor like that is grate, i had a triumph spitfire with the floor like that and it was the best AC i have ever had.
Aerodynamics is for those who can't build engines

If ford pintos are not fast then why chevy's have to use there parts to make them fast?
