I must answer G. J. Wilson’s query about a better all-round car than a Sunbeam-Talbot. He has never met a Citroen Light-15. Here is a car, designed before the war, that still knocks spots off most modern machinery in nearly every respect. [?—Ed.] In specification what advances have been made on her? She has monocoque construction, front-wheel drive, full sound-proofing, independent torsion-bar suspension, rack and pinion steering, powerful fade-free brakes, unnerving cornering power, immediate response to controls, high average speed, outstanding economy, phenomenal carrying capacity, strength and lightness of construction, 300 + mile range, ease and delight of maintenance, not to mention being, surely, the sexiest looking car on the road.
And, further, the ergonomics of the lady; everything, bar the admittedly useless heater, falls straight to hand, even the girl friend’s knees when changing into first at traffic lights. Who today designs a car with features like that?
