I've this yearning for a few years, and although I've come close on a couple of occasions, I've never actually done anything about it. I'm posting on here to get some advice / encouragement / words of wisdom, or maybe even someone saying "don't do it, you'll spoil the memories".
The very first car I owned was a 1979 Alfasud Super 1.5, followed by a 1983 Sprint, followed by a 1982 Alfasud Ti. I totally loved these cars, and even drove the Sprint all the way to the south of Italy ( and back ) with the oil pressure warning light on for the entire journey, but was tempted away by a 1985 Scirocco Storm which I acquired almost free. I came back to the fold with a 1996 GTV, followed by a 1996 164 3.0, and finally a 2002 156 GTA which I have owned from new and am still driving.
Some years ago I test drove an Alfasud, and was somewhat shocked by how heavy the steering was ( I think I've been somewhat molycoddled of late ).
I would want a Sud Ti, with the round headlights, and a hatchback with that small black spoiler on it. Not sure if this would be a 95bhp model or a 105bhp model, and what the differences would be between them. If I did buy one, I'm presuming that I'd have to keep it in a garage. Also, what could / should I do to it to improve the driving experience. One option is to keep it original, but I'd probably like more power and if possible lighten up the steering in some way, but I'd stop short of trying to add air conditioning
I'm sure I can't be the first person whose gone back to the 'Sud's of his 20's, and it would be good to get some buying advice, or even some "don't buy" advice.
