The Flying Ford Pinto

Post by Dude » Fri Jul 21, 2017 6:02 pm

Inventor Henry Smolinski and partner Hal Blake actually accomplished multiple successful test flights in this monstrosity, but they failed to account for a design flaw. The wings were designed to detach while on the ground, but during a routine 1973 test flight, they did so while in the air. The hapless inventors found themselves hurtling through the blue in a perfectly standard Pinto, and you can probably guess how that turned out.

it's not enough that they were blowing up and catching on fire on the ground,
now they are killing people in the sky. :D

LOL.....yes they had no place but to go up where no Pinto has gone before and they did not disappoint.

It's a Bird, It's a Plane ...It's Pinto. This could be an animated cartoon series.

Anyone try this with an Edsel?

now if that truck had run into a beer truck and there was free bottled beer all over also,
then that would have been something.

if he likes the forest so much why doesn't he live there?

or why didn't he plant the forest by his house?

does he have to water all the trees?

there are a lot of unanswered questions about that forest.
