The one that lives across the road has a Cosworth engine in it.  It's also a 
4x4, and shifts quite well in straight lines.  It looks _DAMNED_ hairy going 
round corners, though, especially under power.  Rear drive shafts last about 
three months.

At one time, I saw quite a few driving about.  These days, they're very rare.
