Re: Ford Tempo Quattro?

yep, it's real.  don't know the drivetrain details (real AWD or part-time?
open or viscous diffs?), but i knew a guy with one and it was a tank -
weighed about a zillion tons, and still had a typical wimpy 80's Ford motor.
he liked it, but he wasn't too discerning.  i pretty much think it was a
piece of junk, Tempos were underpowered and poor handling enough without
adding significantly more poundage.
