    Follow the link to see the pics, ya can't make this chit up.:eek:

    Gas line ran from the boat gas tank on the passenger seat, sorry, where seat should be, out the window & under the hood. I'm guessing the window would be his emergency shut off. :lmao2::lmao2:




    State Patrol: Front Seat Gas Tank Fueled 'Unsafe' Car
    It runs on alternative fuel source and the driver can see the road in ways most cars don't offer. But you won't be seeing this classic Ford Pinto back on a Minnesota road any time soon.

    A Minnesota State Trooper stopped the car Sunday on U.S. Highway 52 in Koochiching County.

    A State Patrol spokesperson posted photographs of what the Trooper found on the agency's Facebook page.

    "Much of the vehicle was rusted out," said the spokesperson. Photos show a clear view through what remains of the floor to the road below.

    But that wasn't all.

    A tire was wedged behind the driver's seat, a placement the spokesperson said was holding the seat in place.

    The Trooper spotted a gas can on the front seat. A hose ran from the gas can, out the passenger window, around the front and under the hood, "rigged up to the engine," according to the spokesperson.

    "The car was impounded and the driver was cited for a number of violations," said the spokesperson.

    Those violations included unsafe equipment and not having a Minnesota license.

    I wonder what the trooper said to himself when he saw this thing??

    "What the *&^%?"
    "(chuckle) Oh I gotta hear this one"
    "(laugh laugh laugh) headquaters...you ain't gonna believe this..."

    When you invest as much time and money as Ford owners have - you'll understand why they are so attached. Its like sending a kid to college. When they are completely remade you figure you'll start getting SOME kind of payback on the investment!

    Ordinarily I might argue that but this 2000 f150 I have now has been nothing but a money pit, most expensive vehicle to operate I have ever owned. Only reason I keep it is because 1) its paid for and the repairs are cheaper than another payment, and 2) it what I plow my driveway with.

    let me get this straight. Minn DOT spreads excessive amounts of salt on the roads costing the taxpayers untold amounts of money. this requires them to spend even more tax money fixing the roads. this also causes severe damage to people's cars. then they have the nerve to call your car unsafe and impound it making you walk to work.
