    Spoken like a true Jaguar alumnus.

    The Pinto seemed to come out of it the better of the two vehicles. :p

    So, the old advertising tag line from Ford, “Pinto leaves you with that warm feeling” should not be spoken when the in-laws are present as well.?? ;)

    I was a mechanic at a local Ford dealership when the ''fix'' came out for the Pinto. A light weight, flimsy plastic baffle that shielded the gas tank from being perforated by the rear differential. Cost about a dollar to make and paid me 2 bucks to install.

    A brief history of the Pinto....

    Of course Bill, I won't hijack SoCal's fixup thread here, but will update my thinking about thread when I get my butt in gear and get some more done

    Hijack away! I don't mind in the slightest...if I did I'd be a hypocrite.
