    Default 1955 Paris auto show DS

    It is nice to have strangers remark on the D and often also recount their memories of them. But it was especially nice to have our 84 year old neighbour (who drives a great '63 Ford Falcon ute) bowl up to me when I was parking on our street the other day.

    She said she had been on her honeymoon in 1955 and they saw the unveiling of the DS when visiting the Paris auto show. She said there was huge anticipation and great secrecy, with enormous white sheets lifted off the DS stand. The reaction, she remembered, had been phenomenal, with the Citroen 'Goddess' the talk of the town.

    She went on to say that she and her husband never fulfilled their promise to each other to purchase one when they made it to Australia, to their ongoing regret. They celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary, alongside the D, next year. A great little story...

    Of course they will be taken on a cruise in a DS which you could organise?....
