Sweet video. I dig that the car appears almost stock as far as the body. What I realize when I watch these rally videos is mostly that there is NO WAY I could ever be a co-driver. I could never trust anybody enough to focus on reading the notes while somebody is driving like that.

WOW! That's one crazy frenchman.... exceptional car control!!!!!

When I was 19 I lived near LA, and would try driving like this on the canyon roads like Mullholland Drive etc, and I have been on 3 wheels in a mostly stock '79 Plymouth Horizon (with factory installed 1.7 Rabbit engine/trans) on sections where there are no guardrails. The only mods, were slightly wider Michelin radials (185/60/14's I think), and shocks/struts from a Shelby GLH, no roll cage, no racing seats/harnesses, no helmet or fire suit.

I was about as crazy as these kids I see haulin' ass on sport bikes with t-shirt and shorts, with a skull cap for a helmet......

I'm not sure if I would still have the balls to try that now......
.....not too many 45 year olds haulin ass or sport bikes either.

Anyone that drives like that when they are 19, either ends up dead, or eventually finds the risks are not worth the reward.

There's alot of dead/handicapped thrill seekers out there!
