Fun Car To Play With. — I liked the little pinto , I feel like it would be better if the same body had been a big V8. The four cylinder 4 speed car was still a good car it rarely let us down, and the maintenance was usually simple and inexpensive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Small easy on the Gas pumps.

Cons: Small not much room

1973 Ford Pinto Review

'73 Ford Pinto — The explodo-mobile! Known to burst into flames with a rear impact at almost any speed. The recall involved a big piece of plastic between the rear axle and the gas tank, new straps for the tank, a new filler neck, and a big ring around the gas cap to try and grab onto some metal that hadn't rusted through. The 2.0L engine was a sweet little thing that was a joy to tune. Another great car to learn how to work on cars. Bought it for $200, drove it for four years, and sold it for $200.

Pros: Cheap, easy to work on.

Cons: Explosions
