Type R? I'll have to read the article. As a teen I always lusted after these little front drivers. The GTE and I think later GSi obviously. And the 1.3/1.4 SR models simply because they had the Chevette HSR flares. Actually every model had the flares.

And here's Mark Higgins on the Isle of Man. Much hairier than the boring Subaru video.

LOVE box flares. I'm considering trying to fab up a set for my '83 Volvo 242 project. Can you say Swedish e30?!
