I was watching that weird creepy show Wayward Pines the other night... in the episode where the wife gets hired as a "realitor", I spied a Bobcat Villager wagon. I could tell by the hood shape where it showed the door and part of the hood.

One can never have too many Pintos!

Yup, us eagle-eyed Pinto fanatics could never miss a thing like that!

Not sure if I ever mentioned this (long running post here) but the movie this Pinto is in  http://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_239281-Ford-Pinto-Runabout-1979.html  is the first film I ever worked on. Oddly I wasn't all excited about the Pinto, but rather the Buick Centurion convertible on the far left.  It is (still) owned by a guy I've known for over 35 years (he worked on the film too).  He was so stoked when I found it. 

BTW, the red AMC hornet wagon in the background, it was the DP's car. That is a sure indicator of what a low budget film it was. For those who have nothing better to do here is my account of working on the film. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0173866/reviews?ref_=tt_urv
