    Default Petrolicious DS21 Film

    Hey Guys,

    Advertisement


    I thought i'd share this with you guys! I'm honored to represent our DS community in this video...but after watching realized, after most of what I spoke about was edited out, that it really does not come across in the way I would have wished. I'm certainly not the most worthy DS owner to be featured and I know I share the passion with a lot of people who have invested their lives in preserving and loving this car. Anyway...hope you enjoy it. It was a real treat to have the amazing folks at Petrolicious fall in love with my DS21 at a recent rally and ask me if they could make this film.

    Very well done, indeed.

    I really enjoyed watching fellow Citron Guru talks about his car. He really speaks exactly what WE( I ) feel about car.

    hey Pynhead, your car looks sensational. I don't know the colour, darker than gris khandahar? I like the stripped back look including the wheels you have chosen (a few years ago I would not have agreed). The house looks interesting too.

    cheers Tony

    I appreciate it guys...there's so many "classic car trolls" that take issue with so many of the points being made in the film. Criticism starts with the tail light (burned out the morning of the shoot of course)....and onto a myriad of other issues and offenses from the car being ugly and upset that Petrolicious wasted their time on it...to how much more innovative the latest Ferrari is. You just gotta laugh and love the passion and opinions. It seems, as any of us would have expected, the DS is a car that you either love or hate....but it's pretty clear there's an increasing amount of lovers over haters in the last few years.

    I don't think any of the haters have ever driven one or even ridden in it

    Nice vid... it reminds me a bit of the Hungarian one.
    Which is one of my favorite DS videos, even though it's in Hungarian (with subtitles).
    Great photography and music, and I really like the guy.

    Make sure to watch many of the other clips there, they are works of art.
