    Cloverleafs - I've skipped a few sets of them in my time, you couldn't give them away at one time. Interesting fact about clovers is that Ford nicked the design from Porsche who had the teledial wheels on the 928, Ford also nicked the wrap around bumper idea and the 3 quarter window idea from Porsche for the XR4i. One last Porsche fact is that when Ford were trying to sell the RS200 they priced it at something like £48'950 however Porsche told them that the price was too low as people would want to boast about a 50k sports car so they upped the price to £52'950 and they went like hot cakes-ish. Can't beat a nice Carb XR3 on clovers, had a couple but for me by far my favourite was the RS1600i. (my old one - apologies I know I'm in trouble bringing Escorts and FWD into the fold but a good spot with the Capri S that I kicked it off with).
