Fast And Furious Ford RS200 Versus Toyota Corolla AE86

There's nothing badder than a Ford RS200 — unless it's an RS200 racing against a Toyota Corolla AE86. What? We're not sure, but we think it has to do with racing cars across the Baja filled with drugs. Either way. Awesome. » 2/11/09 9:30pm 2/11/09 9:30pm
