THen you can have RWD fun AND plan for some serious performance upgrades
What type of performance upgrades do you mean? And are they cheap?

Thing is I don't know if I can be responsible with a fast car since this is my first car.

Personally I'd rather have the Escort or the Astra. But I don't know if they will be easy/cheap to fix.

For what it's worth I am taking a Mechanical Engineering course next year. Not as a profession, but for general usefulness.

Also I wouldn't mind an Opel Kadett Superboss. Wikipedia says they hit 168 bhp.

Nope.

South Africa had a lot of SA-only high performance specials including this Opel (and other Opels), V8-engined Sierras and 3 litre Alfa Romeo GTVs amongst others.

If you were back in the 60's or 70's in South Africa with an Escort or Cortina, I would steer you toward Willie Meisner for your tuning needs. However he is long gone, but AutoStyle Motorsports seems to have some options for you to consider.

EDIT: Save some money and paint guardsman blue stripes on it... white is a classic Ford competition color.
