    I've seen Ds advertised at $20,000 plus in Sydney and Melbourne it would be interesting to know what they actually sell for. Did some of my best driving in D wagons they are fantastic, remember driving into Sydney cruising at over 100 mph. all the sound left behind, it really felt like flying. Ah yes that was before radar and cameras, when they had to catch you to book you. I'd love to add it to my collection but I would have to leave home, Denise would have me committed.

    Cheers Chris

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    I'd swap it for our well behaved Pug but I'd be in a lot of trouble from the lady too

    Whats the difference between a confort safari and a normal safari?
    Years ago, about 6 or 7 I guess, I had a DS23 family safari, it was a private import from England and t had a fixed rear seat that was set way back into the rear section, when you sat in the back you looked out the side station wagon windows not the door windows, the leg room was orsum, you could have a party in the back, plenty of room for dancing. There were three tiny fold up seats that folded flat against the front seats, they were like the fold up seats in the back of normal safaris only across the car and just as unstable (couldn't imagine them being legal today), so that was it, it was sold to Perth and the people were going to do a full resto on it, I wonder if its the same car.
    Seeya,
    David.

    Hi David,

    A Confort is the 'luxury' version of the Safari. It is trimmed to basically D Special standards. The car you are thinking of is a 'Familiale' with the fixed third seat and folding jump seats in between.

    The Confort was the normal version of the Safari offered after 1971, when the 'Luxe' version was dropped. (All this according to Reynolds, 'Original Citroen DS'
