If that gas tank gets ruptured, you're probably already dead, because the cabin of the car has been crushed.

Regarding the Pinto, from an article in Popular Mechanics (via Google), "Upon impact, the filler neck would tear away from the sheet-metal tank and spill fuel beneath the car. The tank was also easily punctured by bolts protruding from the differential and nearby brackets"
