The negative of this below image was spotted by Steve. I wonder if the handling felt odd when the tank was full?

    I drove two different Pintos in the early 1980s. I was also rear-ended in one. We had less than a quarter of a tank of gas, so none of the gas spilled out of the inlet tube (which became separated) and drained onto the tail pipe (a terrible design idea to have the tank inlet right above the exhaust pipe). Had we had a full tank of gas, I don’t know what would have happened.
