Fourteen years ago, what kinds of cars would you expect to see at an American rally? Maybe some old Civics and a few Subarus? Prepare to have your mind blown.

I'm talking Escort Cosworths, five-cylinder Audis and more Evos and DSMs than you can count.


This was at the Maine Forest Rally (now New England Forest Rally) in the year 2000. I was at this year's rally, and pretty much everyone there was either driving a Fiesta or a Subaru. They're great cars, and it makes sense to have the same car as the guy next to you (who can help you fix your car/lend you spares), but there's something to be said for wowing the crowd with something different.

Where are all these cars now?
