True, but Pintos have class. You know, there are a list of reasons why I
love to drive a turbocharged Pinto:

"I was going how fast? Surely officer you don't think this car can do

I don't have to worry about where I park it

I don't have to go on prozak if I lose to a modded 5.0 (unlike the owner
of the 5.0 if I place within a couple cars of his $10k+ ride)

"Did you say you wanted $15 for a new front rotor?"

"Dammit Scott, the F*&k*ng insurance company wants $80 for 6 months of
coverage this term!"

"I can come take any parts I want off the Pinto in the yard for $5?"

"Oh damn, someone knicked my door again -- hope it wasn't that 5.0 with
the nice paint ;)"

Besides, Pintos are cooler cuz they are faster than you run-of-the-mill
SVO and Merkur <*GRIN*>.
