    The French version of Area 52, but more cars and more rust. Amazing how there are DS cars rotting away as far as the eye can see. What a great shame. Joe

    Yesterday I started documenting some of the DS that are way beyond restoration at one of our beloved DS workshops here in Sydney. Today with the help of Mort Subite we've been able to put information about who the first owners were, what there cars cost, delivery date etc. to some of the cars now slowly returning to the earth.

    Very geeky I know!

    Shane, What do you reckon it is .. something just placed there in the scrap yard or a diesel conversion. The Regembeau man ( see the SM appreciation thread ) did a diesel SM conversion, and rebuilt his version of an SM V6, with from memory, roller bearings on the camshafts.
    I believe that sort of layout with a belt drive from the CRANKSHAFT, to drive accessories and the aircon compressor would have been a necessity if the DS motors were really updated. I don't know enough about Citroen diesels to be sure.....maybe someone did a CX diesel conversion ?

    look how wide the block is. I'm assuming a V6/V8 of some sort. The pulleys appear to be driven by the crank. The pulleys are flywheel end on a CX .... it's definitely not CX. Given the size of the block it could also be a locally sourced diesel

    Look how narrow the foot wells are. The hump seems to have been hugely increased in size, and would have a bolt on cover to allow access to the belts at the back.

    It also looks as though there are strengthening tubes welded in either side of the bulge!
