Ford Pinto owners gather at Ford Headquarters

by

DEARBORN (WKZO) -- Fans of the Ford Pinto are gathering again in Dearborn, Michigan, this weekend for the three-day Pinto Stampede.

The show's organizer is expecting more than four dozen vehicles to be on display and participate in a number of events.

Ford produced more than three-million Pintos between 1971 and 1980 and had to recall one-and-a-half-million of them due to exploding gas tanks.

While the Pinto was subject of a lot jokes, show officials say most people who owned a Pinto have fond memories of them.
