Re: sud ti green cloverleaf
I recall reading a road test from 1974 with a 1200Ti Sud, an Audi 80GT and an RS2000 Mark 1. The upshot is that the Sud rang rings around the other two despite being 800cc down on the Ford. Unless you're an old fart like me it's hard to realize just how far ahead of the game the Sud was. You couldn't even compare a Mark 1 1300 Escort in the same sentence.
The problem with Suds is that they have very limited appeal - and that's because there are almost none left. It can be the best car in the world but if there are not enough left to go round, the car becomes forgotten. The world seems to have forgotten the Alfasud it seems and the appalling reputation for body rot is still an issue.
