French Muddin' in a Tercel 4WD!

We admit that this vid runs a little long and features some repetitive feats of mudding skill, but nevertheless, it's pretty entertaining to watch what these French off-roaders pull off in their 2nd Gen Tercel 4WD wagon, which only seems to be equipped with a snorkel. And presumably the optional extra-low 1st ratio.

A 4WD Tercel wagon always struck me as a good candidate for a low-budget/hi-craziness dual-engine project; you remove the driveshaft and put a V6 where the back seats go, keeping the front engine. Added hoonage points if you go with a pair of manual transmissions and rig up some complicated parallel clutch/shift linkage. Hey, Mickey Thompson did it with four engines on the Challenger!
