Celebrate The Olympics With A 1972 Ford Mustang Sprint

With the Olympics kicking off, let's rewind to 1972 and take a look at some special "Sprint" edition Fords built to commemorate both the XX Olympiad in Munich, Germany and the XI Winter Games in Sapporo, Japan. The Sprint option was an appearance package on the '72 Pinto, Maverick, and Mustang. Of course, with the Soviet Union claiming first place in the medal count in both Munich and Sapporo (the US placed 2nd and 5th respectively), and that whole "Munich Massacre" thing, the '72 Olympics weren't exactly the best games to commemorate. But then, with the Pinto's explosive reputation, it brings a whole new definition to the Olympic Torch.
