NZ desperately needs more immigration and fresh blood. Our eyes are getting far too close together!

I agree- wheres the fun in cars that actually stick to the road and go where you point them!

I love seeing them scrabble for grip and tails out everywhere!

Traction is no fun :D

It still amazes me how good these cars were & how simple, real rally cars!
