Dana, I had to choose between the Vega and the Pinto ('71), and at least my
engine didn't blow up at 20K!!!
But you're right, talk about living dangerously.
All 2,000 lbs. of Reynolds wrap going 97 mph downhill with a tail wind. I
know a Pinto won't do 97 mph; but this one was "sooped" up.
OK Ok stop laughing, but it was the 2000cc, 100 Horse super car, with
tuned exhaust header!!
Dana, seriously, neither a Pinto or a Vega "flew" over anything....
