YAK Car Pic of the Day

Who says car guys don’t have a sense of humor? Of of them entered this 1979 Ford Pinto in the Buffalo History Museum’s Antique & Classic Car Show this past summer. I’m one to talk, though. Back in the day I bought two of them, brand new! A poop brown 1974, and a butterscotch 1977 Mercury Bobcat (which was the same car with a different grille and taillights). What I like about this ’79, besides the knock-out orange paint job, is the colorful seating material. This was stock from the factory, from when interior designers had a larger color palette than tan, black, and gray.
