I like those Focus's, but I gotta throw my hat in the ring for the Puegot. I just love that body style, like it's crouched, ready to launch. However, I'm a big fan of the WRC Impreza, I just wish they made one in a hunter green...I think that would like so bad!

Dream rally car? Impreza WRC of course.
Road car? Gotta go with Skyline GT-R.

OK, I'll throw my $0.02 in here.

After the classic style Impreza WRC, I'd have to say I like the Mitsu then the Pug, but that's based mostly on looks. I hate to say it, but I think that Focus Dante's drooling over is going to be this year's champion.

That little Focus (in both WRC and street forms) has been the best thing Ford's done in years. A guy in my division auto-X's with one and I have a heck of a time beating him with my RS. (Of course, he's a damn good driver, but still...)

I think I'll be different. Give me an old Lancia Stratos. They are supposedly really scary to drive. But they sure look mean.

If the 206 was FF it wouldent be a WRC car now would it?

It is of course 4WD, and all the happy stuff.

Ive never really been a big fan of the 206. Puegeot are a bunch of cheaters. Screw them. Little tid bit of info for you. When Seat wanted to build a WR car they tried to get the Seat Ibiza Coupre homologated for use as their WRC platform. FIA rejected it saying it was, get this, 2cm too short in the wheel base, and 1cm to short in over all length. So they car could not be holologated. WHich meant they had to go to their next car in the line up, which was the cordoba, which im sure we all know how well it performed, comparied to the 3 BRC championships the Ibiza had. Then Peugeot steps up with the 206. Which was 5 cm too short in overall length. And 6cm too short in wheelbase. The FIA allowed them to use that car, and they stretched it out to meat the minimum wheelbase and length requirements of the FIA, and then widened it to maximum width as allowed under the rules. I guess alot can be said for being a former world champions, and FRENCH, when it comes to cheating the rules of the FIA. Go peugeot.

Ok, im done ranting.

Im gonna have to probably make my choice between the 2002+ RS and the Focus SVT (maybe the Protege Wagon) when I get my car... The Focus is partially what got me into the Subie crowd after seeing it on TV(that and GT of course )
