    that's a very rare car.... Surely it'll sell for way more than the suggested price. I pretty sure only 5 RHD GTi Turbo prestiges were ever made

    Adrian could tell you what to allow for in terms of freight and the tax. I'm sure he couldn't have forgotten that quickly.

    I guess this will speak volumes to the familiar. Looks pretty good to my untrained eye. Colour is pretty out there, looks purple in other shots I have seen. But who cares about that.

    It's actually very "uncorroded" under-bonnet for a pommy car, I imagine it's spent very little time on salted roads.

    I reckon the CX Athena is the more collectable car than the Prestige Turbo2. The latter has made the former's looks heavy and cumbersome on the eyes. The same goes for the seats.

    I think the throne seats should be thrown (away).

    Roger Bradford from the CX Centre really knew his CXs. He was a guest speaker at the SE Section of the UK Citroen Car Club in the early 90's and gave a superb presentation on the CX. I bought a set of twin Weber 45DCNFs from Peter Jackson, his predessesor with manifolds to suit a CX. Great carbs.

    Thrown away....... I have always been fond of the Villain Chair. I have long thought the CX seats shown were an homage to it. One chair is about $7k, which makes a car with 4 of them look remarkably good value.

    That is one seriously gorgeous car, for a knock down price.

    The C-Matic wagon appealed too.

    No-one on this forum would be too tempted by a mid-1950s Ford Consul Mk 1 presumably.

    Actually that chair reminds me of some very bad paving I did recently.

    fair enough. I have just had some mediocre paving done. It's a pain in the backside to rectify, probably like the car...... Backside.... rectify, I'm sure I'm missing an opportunity there, too late.

    Those price guides for the auction make me homesick for the UK.

    Hey dave,
    a good R16ts, if you could find one in the UK would probably be $15k.

    There was that CX Prestige in Sydney last year don't forget. You don't really want to buy a Mk 1 Ford Consul anyway, do you???

    The price guides for the 2CVs is roughly double what I paid for mine in 1993 and 1994.

    One was 1500 pounds and the other was 1250 pounds. Carriage by container to Oz was about 2000 pounds per car.

    The 1500 pound car was sold a few years later for $13,500, and was resold two or three times for the same amount. One of the times was back to ME, because my mate from Victoria forgot to bring up his driver's licence so it couldn't be registered in his name up in NSW.

    With the current amount of rain we are getting in Sydney, I don't get homesick for the UK at all.

    DS prices on the other hand seem to be making progress, though clearly there can be a large gap between asking prices and attained.

    UFO mentioned recently that German owned cars are generally a bit special and this one seems to support that, a '75 DS23 ie Pallas at £32,950

    I hear you on the weather. I am sorely tempted by the little Renault R6 TL but suspect the cost of shipping it to Australia would be prohibitive. And if i were to ever sell what market would there be... Oh and storage has become an issue.

    Cars that you fantasise over are a bit like women that strike your fancy. With the latter, a good nights sleep and a wet dream gets them out of your mind. Cars on the otherhand haunt you for longer.

    Even so, the high cost of alimony often makes you get rid of the car and keep the spouse.

    From time to time good 16TS examples come up in Oz, and they are ridiculously cheap for what you get. And they are here.

    Sounds like a good idea. In fairness, it was a great improvement on the previous model, for those unlucky enough to know how the earlier ones were suspended, mind you. But the earlier ones were a rather low base level to climb from. In the 1950s, the Ford Consul reached the standards of the 1930s except perhaps for smooth styling and weather-proofing. Awful cars. In fairness, perhaps fairly reliable? Who cares.

    What still puzzles me is the disparity in values between a DS and a CX. I know the DS is iconic, but the CX is a fine vehicle and no-one will ever do anything like them again. Wafting through the traffic in my C-matic today was a joy.
