Wanna bet? The current advertising campaign for the Mitsubishi Lancer even shows a WRC car racing through the mud and subsequently being pressure washed - removing the sponsors decals in the process and leaving behind - you guessed it - a $12,000 bottom of the range sedan.

And as for WRX drivers - I think the exact opposite of your statement above rings true. They ALL think they are Finnish rallye drivers. Heck I even saw a guy who had full WRC decals applied to his STANDARD car.

Rice image - Totally agree. But does this deny them of pedigree? Not sure.
