GOSH: Ford Motor Company to re-launch Pinto and rebrand it.

TRAWNA – (GOSH Wine News Services) – The Ford Motor Company of Canada will announce tomorrow that it is bringing back the plagued Pinto automobile.


This time, the car will be stylized as an "electric car" with no gasoline tank, thus eliminating the one explosive reason that the car was taken out of production.


The Government of Ontario, A Have-Not Province, is ecstatic that hundreds of new jobs will be created. The car is intended to best use green power from windmills and wind turbines.


Ford is also exploring the use of electricity from methane gas production caused by the millions of Holstein cows in Ontario, A Not-Fart-Free Province.


GOSH has also learned from sources that the Pinto will be re-branded to shake off its previously poor image and to take advantage of the latest trends in naming or branding.


The new Pinto will be known as Pinot, to take advantage of the lust for California red wine of that name. The array of colours is expected to conform to both Canadian-Francophone desires and to the basic black of the original Ford, and to include the colours Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc. If you're Italian, you may choose Pinot Nero, Pinot Grigio, and Pinot Bianco. Later, Pinot Meunier (an off-white, dusty bone, flour-y colour) will be added to the array.


More on this story as it develops…
