    A brilliant solution to gain better access to the rearmost spark plug.
    If only the Citroen factory had demonstrated that sort of lateral thinking.

    I think I recognise the windscreen. Just imagine the body roll up there in the driver's seat? I hope the rego hasn't lapsed, how would you get something like that registered these days?

    Not much rust... With all that grass growing up under it I imagine any attempt to move it would end disastrously.

    It looks pretty good to me. but servicing this car might be a big challenge.

    Perhaps you could fit it in sideways to your garage, Kaz....swing her in sideways with a crane? Better still, build a ramp and store your ID inside it. I think the best thing that can be said about this beast is that she's a 'conversation piece'.

    You can see why they have done it.... like a boat they have tried to make an "open" area for photographers to move around on.... while it's in motion. Obviously a DS was used as a base due to it's ride quality .... plus you could stack 10people ontop of it and it would still sit dead level.
