I posted about my first car last week, a 1969 Simca 1118, an underpowered French import that was just about the last of its kind brought into the country. A pretty underwhelming automotive experience.
Not so for the rest of the world, apparently:
The Simca 1000 series was very popular around the world, and as everybody knows, it there are a lot of something, someone will race it. And if it gets raced, it will get hopped up.
Like I said, I always wondered how that car would have run with a motor transplant from a Honda CBX.
