I thought very, very seriously about doing this to our MR2 last year. I figured that everything could move pretty easily and I'd dummy up a chain-gear apparatus from a wrecked 12-speed bike so that I wouldn't have to mess with changing out the steering rack. The only downside so far as I could see was that the MR2 has its fuel tank in the middle of the car (between the driver and passenger) so that would mean we'd need a fuel cell somewhere and we just didn't want to spend the monies. Plus the rest of the team thought I was crazy to even suggest it. Bums me out that somebody beat me to it though. Looks great!

"The SIMCA 1000 rear engined saloon is not a car which is going to be remembered in years to come for any particular reason.... It is not startling for its beauty, innovating with its design or particularly fast, economic or comfortable. However, it has been successful for SIMCA, especially in France."
