Craigslist Project Car - Pinto with a Jet Engine

Recommended Posts

Now this is something you don't see everyday. Thumbing through Craigslist today, I stumbled across this interesting project car. An unfinished '73 Pinto wagon with a jet engine! Yes sir, nothing will get your attention faster than a Pinto passing you on the highway at Mach 1.

Guess the regular Pinto caught fire not easily enough so he added a custom jet engine to help out.

Perhaps. I figure the jet engine is a crash detourant. "Come any closer and I will light this sucker up!"

You may catch the other car on fire but he might be able to get the heck away from that crash :lol:

There's plenty of room in the dash for the seatbelt light.  Does the seat have to be a floatation device?

Nope. It's a jet Pinto, not a jet boat. However, an ejection seat and a parachute might not be a bad idea.

Perhaps you are relieving the Brownsville Station classic tune "Martian Boogie" in your head Ringo!

"So I ordered me up a
Couple of those grease bombs
Waitress brought 'em over
Lifted up the bun, checked 'em out
Damn, no ketchup

So I nudged the guy sitting next to me
At the counter, I said, "Hey, partner
How about passing the ketchup over?"

Suddenly, this little bitty green hand
Holding a ketchup bottle came into view
And I freaked cause the guy sitting
Next to me... was a Martian!!

Now in twenty-eight years of eating hamburgers
I ain't never run into no Martian
Not at 2:30 in the morning and certainly
Not at a fine scarfing establishment like Eat
"
