Remeber this? It's not a Fiesta but close enough. 1989 - 90 Ford Festiva SHOgun (I sure do / some of ya may remeber it). This is what Ford needs to bring out for the everyday guy to drive. I've always wanted one (of the seven / slim chance lol / geuss I could build one, not!).
One did sell in 2005 (just missed it by that much! lol)

In 1990, Chuck Beck of Special Editions and Rick Titus took seven Festivas, gutted the interiors, and mounted Ford SHO (Yamaha-built for the Taurus SHO) 3.0 L V6s behind the front seats to make the car mid-engined. There were substantial cosmetic and mechanical changes, including relocating the gas tank to the front of the car, structural bracing and improvements to the chassis, adding wider wheel arches to accommodate a wider stance and larger tires, and a complete redesign of the suspension. These changes resulted in a car that could accelerate from 0–60 miles per hour (0–97 km/h) in 4.6 seconds, travel the quarter-mile (0.4 km) in 12.9 seconds at 100.9 miles per hour (162.4 km/h), and could achieve a lateral acceleration figure ranging from .95 to 1.04 g. Of the seven, Jay Leno owns the silver one, which is number 3.
