    Looks to be a very clean tidy DS in the piccies. The only thing that kills them is rust in the hull. If it's not rusty, it's no parts car !!

    What's missing ??

    Mmm, that car looks familiar! Good luck with the purchase, the beige one will be a great car when restored, hope you have a big garage!

    Have you checked his sig file? I suspect he may have a large garage, too much time and obviously a well padded cheque book - but hey, at least someone is having HEAPS of fun.

    And by the way, most of that D looks like a word that the filter would make into asterisks. Definitely parts. Keep the bonnet though.

    Default Its A Worry

    Yes well all the stables are full now. I think its time to settle down and play with what I've got, but these old Citroens are so cheap and what Iíve spent on cars in the last 5 years is less than the cost of a half decent new car and no depreciation . Okay maybe not quite as reliable but havenít had a computer crash or the transmission go into snow mode etc etc etc although that most probably happened to some of the previous owners and I might be a misogynistic prick but I like my cars like my women why only have one when thereís a whole smorgasbord out there for the samplingand they really don't cost any more to run if you keep them nice and warm and dry thats counts for the women as well but maybe not the dry bit
