- They used to have the biggest works supported Hillman Imp rally team in Finland. Among others, Taisto Heinonen started there and so did Markku Alen and Leo Kinnunen, etc

- All team cars were named after imfaomous Finnish knife fighters (!) and these cars are still very popular when they show up.

- The IMP engine is an old fire truck "water pumper", turning 10 000+ RPM. That was a lot in '60s!

- Here's a link to the Finns who are racing and restoring these cute rally cars: http: //www.geocities.com/harmanhajyt/

- It's in Finnish only but go through the pics, see how much work they put to these cars and you'll NEVER complain about YOUR rally project....
