Is this beater the "World's Most Dangerous Car" or is it an engineering marvel?

Most of us remember the old Ford Pinto, the car that literally blows up if you rear end it right? Now we were pretty sure they weren't on the road anymore, maybe a few in the hands of daring collectors. But on the road? NO WAY. We believed that until we saw this on the MN State Patrol's Facebook page.

On July 1, 2012, an MSP Trooper stopped this old Ford Pinto for unsafe equipment on US 53 in Koochiching Co.  Much of the vehicle was rusted out. A tire was actually holding in the front seat. And gas can - which was resting on what would be the passenger’s seat – had been rigged up to the engine. The car was impounded and the driver was cited for a number of violations including; no Minnesota License and unsafe equipment.

Take a look at the gallery below and you'll see why the officer made the stop. So you tell us, is this The World's Most Dangerous Car? Or is it a magnificent piece of engineering work?
