    The editors said they would rev at ricers at stop lights and they would hear the big american v8 and see the tiny car, but wouldnt make the connection till they had utterly lost.
    That would be slick.

    It will be done sometime in the next generation.

    Why use a Civic, when you can use a Mini

    And you say people actually pay money for M$ Windows?

    Total re-design underway: on the whole progress is very slow as the car is taking up too much time :)

    now that this thread is utterly highjacked...
    if you have the time or resources... take a look at the may 19, 2003 issue of autoweek.

    Acurate Technologies (some ford performance group) built up the ultimate focus.

    stock focus trim
    SVT Cobra engine tuned to 500+ hp and 500+ tq
    ~3200 lb car
    converted to rear wheel drive
    the only give aways are the dual exhaust and the bigger rear wheels.

    and yes, they are planning on selling these cars!!! but, for ~ 70,000 Plus the donor focus car.
