This guy couldn't buy a SHOGun, so he built it himself. Nice job too.
The SHOGun, was a tuner vehicle, I don't recall who made it, but the idea was to mimic the Renault 5 Turbo. Take the Yamaha V-6 and transaxle from the Taurus SHO and put it in the rear of the Festiva, to make a mid-engined road burner. Weighing in at just under 2500 lbs. with 220 hp, these cars were beasts. From what I've seen online, only a handful of these pocket rockets were built. The pictured car was built by a guy who couldn't fine one, so he built it himself. I must say, he's done an excelent job too. Check out the other pictures.
