1k: Refried Beans: 1977 Mercury Bobcat

 This next tip comes from Kaibeezy who writes: now, that’s something you don’t see every day – in fact, i’m certain i
never have in all my months and years of dredging CL for you.  claimed 32k miles – dope wheels… dopey i mean.
  Find this 1977 Mercury Bobcat offered for $1700 in San Leandro, CA via craigslist.

The Bobcat was a rebadged version of Ford’s subcompact Pinto — known around the world for its exploding fuel tank, which was a smear job from some two bit rag called Mother Jones..which I have determined through exhaustive research is not owned or produced by Tom Jones’ mother or any member of the Jones extended family.

Under the hood is Cologne V6 mated to an automatic transmission that pushes out a whopping 93 horsepower and 140 ft-lbs of torque from its ample 2.8 liter displacement.
