    Default DS Wedding Cars - Sydney

    Hi all,

    We're getting married in July of this year (yay!)...

    Is there anyone in Sydney which is offering the services of a Citroen DS to take us to our wedding in Mosman in July?

    The DS is our favourite car, and it would mean a lot to us if an additional car or two could be sourced for the day!

    Cheers,

    Joel + Sarah.

    Red Berlingo any good? It has a roof flap so you could wave to the commoners...

    Take an Italian speed boat ( I did...) saves dealing with Citroen drivers demands and whims!

    In fact just do it down at the registry and spend all the dough on a holiday. Who needs friends and family!

    just joking mate.

    No seriously...

    Surely she wants a shiny gold CX prestige as a wedding car

    Now your talking, not only that, it would come with a lifetime of free servicing and upkeep..... Your onto something here .... Prestiges would be great for carrying grandkids too. Nice big back doors to get the kids in/out.

    Say, do your kids still drive DS's ? What ever happened to the painted up DS one of your kids used to drive?

    Two CX prestiges are the backup, but she has ridden in the Prestige many many times so not quite a special car for the wedding. At least one has working A/C though.

    I agree the CX Prestige is the family car par excellance. Gets young kids to sleep quicker than any other car, reliable and cheap to run.

    My son and daughter both were delivered home from hospital in our CX Prestige, I agree a perfect car for setting a baby into a capsule, I could just about stoop behind the front seat to do up the harness.

    I also count the Prestige for perhaps saving Mrs GB and daughter when sitting at an intersection waiting to do a right turn, the car was hit from behind and rather than being pushed into oncoming traffic, with the front wheels pointing straight ahead the car went harmlessly forward, Diravi

    Joel, congratulations, I'm sure there will be a few Sydney cars at your disposal

    Cheers

    Its having a little rest in the yard. Bet has said a few times she'd like a nice shiny D, but I know who will have to maintain it.

    I had hoped to have "Delphine" up and running in time to take my friends Mathieu.(Monsieur Le Frog)) and his new wife Lorraine to their wedding reception.
    Anyone with a Traction Light 15 available in Sydney( Manly to Mosman) on Feb 20th from about 3 p,m?

    Delphine is not going to make it!!
