    Default Gold DS seen in Park St South Melbourne

    Hi
    Wondering if anyone knows who owns the gold DS (23?) seen a few weeks ago in Park street South Melbourne. We have been looking at colours to paint our DS23 and had decieded on Vert Argente, however my wife saw this DS and says it looked so good it had a halo around it, the wheels weren't touching the road and she thought the bloke driving it was wearing a crown of thorns (no offence to any believers out there) BUT THATS HOW GOOD SHE SAID IT LOOKED. Now we were set on Vert Argente but since this apparition appeared she wont budge. At first thoughts a gold DS is not my ideal but I now have to track it down and have a look. Any help appreciated.
    Cheers
    Ray

    Default South Melbourne DS

    I use Park street South Melbourne most weekends to do the shopping. I suspect it was my car, I don't see any other gold DS's around these parts. You're welcome to come and have a look at the car, the gold is pretty forgiving between washes.

    I know exactly what your saying about how good it looks.Many many years ago I had a bloke pull up at work in a magnificent gold DS23 ( Don't know if it's anyone here ), the sun was shinning and every part of this car gleamed and sparking. It had to have been sent from God. I said the owner that that is the most beautiful car I've ever seen in my life and he just smerked and said. Yep, 20 years ago my wife made me chose between her or the Citroen, I've still got the Citroen.

    I love vert argente but am probably biased. I owned a DS23 pallas that colour and my first ride in a DS as a 12 year old was the same and brand new.
    go green, or go for gold

    Dear Ray,

    given your car is a 75 model.

    BEIGE THOLONET AC 085 (1973-75)

    AC085 Beige Tholonet Citroen DS ID

    I will get the code for my car in the next few days, but it's not an original colour, and if I were you, I would choose an original colour, then, you can always say it's original, and right for the car. It's a more subtle version of what is on mine. Colour is very subjective, but, there is no wrong choice if it's original.

    The translation.......
    BEIGE THOLONET AC 085 (1973-75)
    Tholonet beige tint is a principle view of the Pallas models.Qaund it is aged, distinguish Sand Metallic ( AC 318 ) may be under certain lighting an exercise worthy of entry Polytechnique contest.
    Say that the Beige Tholonet is a bit classier than the Sand Metallic. This should help you locate one another.
    The tholonet is a village in Provence near Aix, which inspired Cezanne. The color of the mountains, brown beige, seems to be the reason tholonet beige Citroen.


    Stay classy.


    Best regards
    Michael.
