RH77 proposes an alternative host car...

how would the Ford Festiva handle the swap (too bad we don't get the Ford "Ka" over here yeah, the festiva was another somewhat popular lightweight host car.
i'd do something more interesting if the opportunity arose. rust sucks! there are probably lots of cheap, dead, interesting, rust-free, lightweight cars to choose from in the southern US.

there's another metro sitting in someone's yard a couple of blocks away. i think it was retired recently from daily driver status to lawn ornament status. i'll go knock on their door tomorrow.
