What a great little car - so light and nimble, and a precursor to the legendary Escort. My mate and I rallied one in 1974. The demon tweak was a 1500 engine with a 1200 head topped off with a Holden carbie. Pretty comical now, but it all cost next to nothing and we had a lot of fun. After it holed a piston I sold it to a mate of a mate, and went clubbie racing.
