    A Ford concept from 1996.

    Rear-engined Mini.

    Diesels are nice an all, but they really need a turbo if you're going to get any off-the-line performance out of them.

    That rear engined Mini might be a little slow coming off the line but once it gets up to speed I wouldn't stand in front of it!

    Historically, Minis aren't fast so much as their tiny size and wide stance gave them a huge advantage in rallies (especially those with tons of corners that other cars would need to slow down for).

    Today's MINIs are fast but in a straight away shootout, even entry level Mustangs could beat out the Cooper S.

    On a somewhat related, and a bit non sequitur tangent, you'd be surprised how well a Crown Vic/Grand Marquis can handle.

    The power steering in Ford products has always been too squishy soft for my tastes.

    This one is actually nice. When it comes to hotrods I have always liked the 1940-1942 Willys Overland Coupe.
