You might be surprised that Mk1 and Mk2 Ford Escorts are powered by four-cylinder engines. Listen to a bunch of them rip some burnouts and you'll think they run on angel trumpets.
This was at a demonstration run on the Isle of Jersey back in 2011 and, as far as I can tell, there was no plan to do these burnouts. The drivers just had the cars and felt like showing off. Clearly, RWD Escorts are the cars of choice for vintage-style British hoons.
