Car designers figured out in the 1960s that front-wheel-drive is simply the best way to package an economy car for maximum interior space. Who cares? Rear-wheel-drive is a lot more fun, as this burnout-happy Toyota Starlet proves.

This is a turbo-Volvo-powered Starlet, run by those same dudes who boosted a Grandma-spec Ford to high heaven and drifted the bejeesus out of a Civic Wagovan.

Reader bugattatra is looking to build a high power, low weight Starlet himself, and we can understand why he's attracted to these little shitboxes.
