    Holy crap that thing is awesome. I'm guessing its an Aussie car? Drop a nice 302 or a turbo 2.3 in that little fucker and it'll fly.

    A 302 would make it too nose-heavy, I was thinking more like a 2.1 pinto or I'll wait a year or two more and drop a BDA or YBT cosworth

    This is the kind of cool shit Ford should've released in the states. Nice condition, looks cool and interesting.

    I have a thing for quirky smaller cars, so thats why I like it. It's very Euro.

    I think it's the "Hey, I've never seen one of those" thing. Musclecars are a dime a dozen up this way, so they don't really draw me toward em.
