Many cars have made the transition from joke fodder to recognized collector car: the Model T, the Corvair, the Beetle. Some cars are still in transition, notably the Gremlin and Pacer. Some cars, like the Yugo, may never make the transition. So what about the Pinto? Will excellent examples such as this 1978 Ford Pinto for sale on help legitimize the car and dispense with the explosion jokes? Or will 30th century archaeologists still be laughing at it? From the seller’s description:
