Long before Ford outfitted 100 web-savvy travelers with 2010 Fiesta hatchbacks, video cameras and internet access — and cast them to the four winds in search of adventure and viral-video gold — there was this. Many derided the original Ford Fiesta as a hapless, rustful econobox during its three year US run, from 1978 to 1980. But owners shined to the Fiesta’s revvy 1.6-liter Kent four and tight handling. That’s why most surviving models spend more time autocrossing than they do parked at Walgreens. This well-used model saw much pavement action at Susquehanna, PA-region SCCA events by a serious competitor who installed a Haltech fuel-injection setup and awesomeness-boosting box flares. For $7000, you also get four engines, one of which you could use in your TVR 1600M project car.
