Default Was told by Russ to post these up of my other toys

Built by myself over 5 years, is a full blown rally car and is Targa ready but have decided to run the WRX and keep the escort for special occasions.

Awesome looking cars. Bit of an odd question though, with the car having the Rothmans livery would they be any problem running it in Targa with the anti tobacco sponsorship rules in Australia?

It looks fantastic! Was it built here in WA?
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.
