PARIS MOTOR SHOW: StreetKa could become pop star
Automotive News / September 30, 2002
Ford Motor Co. turned to pop music star Kylie Minogue to unveil the StreetKa, designed by Pininfarina. Ford is sponsoring Kylie's concert tour, and she'll use the little roadster in an upcoming video. Since the StreetKa is based on the previous-generation Fiesta, which doesn't meet U.S. crash standards, it won't be coming to North America. A prototype StreetKa was built on the new Fiesta platform, which is ready for use in America, but the resulting vehicle was rejected because it "had a big butt," a Ford executive said.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
