It's not often that Russ is correct but 10 points scored this time

Any videos of the rally escort in action?

I would give anything for a RS2000.

Then engine transplant.

Then kill myself with it.

Yes, had a fight with CAMS over it and they made me sign a stat dec saying "I am not receiving money from the tobacco company" after they received that they issued the log book. However i'm sure each event will create issues but last few years the car was on show at Langley park on the Sunday of targa west and 2 years ago I was invited to do a parade lap so i think if nobody makes a song and dance about it, it"ll be ok. BUT if it ever did run in targa west I wouldn't upset the apple cart due to QUIT sponsorship and I"d remove the signage.

I have a vested interest since I have a MkII Focus RS.
Interestingly a good friend of mine built an almost identical (to yours) Rothmans replica in Victoria...it was finished a few years ago.
Yes I built it here and you mean Franks car?
Externally they looked similar especially after Frank replaced the fibre glass arches with alloy ones but my car is not just a pretty paint job, its built to the GRP4 specs (other than not having a BDA) and the new owner of Frank's car spent upwards of 100k to bring that up to GRP4 spec

A good unmolested 2 door RS2000 is now getting hard to find unless you have deep pockets, had mine for +13 years now and it's very rare she comes out to play. Between me and my co-driver we have x2 RS2000's, x1 GRP4, x1 rally pack. They are all the desirable 2 door and in immaculate condition. Hopefully we'll get all 4 of them out at Whiteman park next year.

I almost bought an rs2000 about 7 years ago for $2000. Damn thing wouldn't start when I went to look at it, owner wasn't around, then it had sold too quickly.

Great cars.

Welcome aboard. That's a fantastic build you've got there. I absolutely love the old rally cars! My dream ride is an Audi Sport Quattro S1.

I bought a brand new white RS2000 back in 79, stupidly I liked 4 doors but in the end it was a better decision as 2 kids came along, I sold it for what I paid for it 12yrs later with 112,000K's on the clock.

It had a built motor by Rolly Waters years before he became RaceTorque, had twin Webber 45's, roller rockers, cam, exhaust, A008's etc.

Also had a 2 door Mk1, 2 door Mk2 and Mk2 van.
