Any historical, technological or sentimental reason this might be anything other than the airfix tat-fest we see before us?

Steve, you do know the Birdcage you posted isn't French don't you?

At least we are getting polls again so thanks for that even if we're being blinded by garlic and onion!

So... The Visa GTI. Didn't really cut it as a hot hatch at the time. Fairly useful in class rallying but never ripped up any trees. Stylistically challenged then and now. It has to be uncool.

There's a smidgen of cool about one being used in a historic rallying context just because it's a bit unusual but overall it has to be uncool.


Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

I right ol' dirtbox of a car.

Sticking a GTi badge to it doesn't change that.
