These Cars Had Everything To Please The Purist Of Drivers, With Extreme Body Detailing, World Class Japanese Build Quality And Of Course Ample Power That Would Give The Company`s Main Rival, Subaru A Damn Good Run For Their Money And Was Hugely Successful As A World Winning Rally & Track Car, Winning Numerous Awards For The FIA International Hill Climb Cup And Was Purchased By Private Individuals That Wanted To Perhaps Test Their Own Levels Of Driving Capabilities To The Full.
