Old Ford Pintos are raced around a track with obstacles on it -- in reverse!

Pintos tended to erupt in flame in rear-end collisions. http://www.time.com...498_1657866,00.html

       What about Gremlins, would they be the pace car?

       Gremlins didn't blow up when rear-ended, did they?

       I owned a Pinto. 'Pinto' and 'Racing' is an oxymoron.

       Or the Pintos could be raced without a driver, by remote control

       Does my family (Flam) get free entry? My uncle and aunt took us in their Pinto to Jungle Habitat when I was 7:30 (that was my translation of 7 and a half from Hebrew when talking to kids my age), in 1972.   

       If I remember correctly, it was the smallest car on the road, and easiest to park.
