    Pulled the Sprite up to a VRG vintage race at Watkins Glen last weekend and saw a "real" rear-wheel drive Twin-Cam Escort (as opposed to my "modern", fwd Escort GT NASA racer).

    Nice car and made cool sounds too.
    This one had the regular Lotus Twin Cam (8 valve with about 110 HP).
    Later versions came with the BDA 16-valve engine that made about 120 HP. I know that doesn't sound like a lot but remember, this is a vintage car. Beside, the "works" factory racers back then had BDAs that made 235+ HP.
