1986 Dutch National Paris-Dakar Team Daihatsu Rocky Proto
Ford78 PT (763)Translated from a source:

"Both Daihatsu prototypes were housed in the Dutch National Paris-Dakar Team '86; a large team with 10 participating teams. In addition to the two prototypes, three motorcyclists and one truck, four Daihatsu Rocky rally cars also drove under the flag of the team. One of these Rocky's would originally participate in the classification, the other three cars had a supporting task.

DAIHATSU / TOYOTA TWIN ENGINE PROTOTYPE DAKAR 1986 (PART 1) Dakar The Digital Museum 2 January 2018 1 comment Alex Miedema Daihatsu Rocky, Dakar 1986, Jaco Terlouw, beach races, Toyota, Van Vliet
On the basis of the Daihatsu Rocky, two Dakar prototypes were built in 1985. According to the idea of ​​the twin-engine DAF rally trucks, a twin engine rally car was signed by Wiet Huidekoper. The traditional ladder chassis of the Daihatsu would in itself be a good basis for these rally cars, but by mounting two engines per vehicle, with the front engine driving the rear axle and the rear engine the front axle, the design was chosen for a tubular frame with polyester carrosserie.Daihatsu RockyThe bulk of the technology of these vehicles came from the Daihatsu Rocky. For the drive was chosen for the compact 1.6 liter 16 valve petrol engine from Toyota, which manufacturer this power source offered in the Toyota Tercel and Toyota Corolla. Each engine in the prototypes delivered 125 hp, so the total power per car was 250 hp. Daihatsu RockyBeide Daihatsu prototypes were housed in the Dutch National Paris-Dakar Team '86; a large team with 10 participating teams. In addition to the two prototypes, three motorcyclists and one truck, four Daihatsu Rocky rally cars also drove under the flag of the team. One of these Rocky's would originally participate in the classification, the other three cars had a supporting task.
 
With a preparation time of barely five months, participation in Paris-Dakar in January 1986 was a very ambitious but almost certainly impossible plan. In spite of this, the technicians managed to offer both prototypes for inspection in Brussels on 14 December 1985. An inspection that turned out to be disastrous for the team. The 'twin engine' Daihatsu prototypes were rejected by the technical committee of rally organizer T.S.O. for participation in the rally. The team decided to participate in the 1986 edition with the registered Daihatsu Rocky rally cars, which were initially registered as fast service."

1986 Dutch National Paris-Dakar Team Daihatsu Proto Twin Engine
Ford78 PT (763)The Prototype from Daihatsu is from Dakar Rally 1986 which uses the engine from Toyota 1.6 which is also used on Toyota Corolla and Tercel. It was planned that the Daihatsu Prototypes would compete in 1986 Dakar Rally. But sadly in December 1985, the Daihatsu Twin Engines were rejected by the Technical Commitee Organiser from T.S.O. and they were not able to compete. The Daihatsu Rocky Rally Raid Cars, which those were initially registered as Fast Service Cars, ended on replacing the Daihatsu Twin Turbo Prototypes instead.

1999 Chrysler Pacifica [NS]
carcrasher88 US (13)When people hear the Pacifica nameplate, they think of the mid-00's CUV that used the nameplate, but the reality is...today's Pacifica minivan actually owes it's existence to this concept, based on the Town & Country of the era with LHS styling cues.

The Pacifica that went into production 3-4 years later? That draws it's lineage back to the Citadel concept from the same year as this, which evolved into the 2002 Pacifica concept that previewed the production model.

Now, the Pacifica nameplate has gone back to it's minivan roots, while the Citadel nameplate has been re-assigned as a top of the line Dodge Durango trim level. Full circle, I'd say.
