Ford Pinto I think.


We had a Chevelle. Looked a bit like that. Light green.

I have to go with bostontrainguy on this one -- from long, hard experience. :)

The picture shown was from May, 1976. A trolley derailed at South Huntington & Heath St., causing traffic to back-up for a little over an hour starting around 4pm. The cars & trolleys shown were "victims" of being held-up until the scene cleared.

It's good enough for me. Derek, you were dead on, good guess ! Those are fun. We've had a few of those on here and they always bring out a lot of conversation.
