    You can sleep in the back of it. Some guy has been advertising he wants to buy a diesel in the club magazine.... he found dads contact details and rang him.

    Given the car is running well, has a full respray, fresh trim, good steering wheels, two sets of very good door trims ...... The bloody thing has been near given away. The thing is how much is a car that's been sitting for 15years and will need spheres, tyres, return lines, etc,etc,etc to get it back on the road worth ?? It's also probably the soundest wagon left in Australia .... if not the world.

    Is it worth $500 or $5000 .... buggered if I know

    A real Citroen is a 2CV.

    No other car company has or would ever claim ownership of such an ugly bastardised cross between a dunny, a pram and an umbrella.

    Talking about the D's and the 2CV's like that is blasphemy, wash out your mouth with soap. i guess we are lucky to have French cars even depicted in an American full length cartoon. They usually indulge in cronyism.

    Yep ... Does it get any better .... Some manufactures like to just continue rolling out the same boring stuff... eg: the Renault 19 **shudder** ... At least PSA managed to make a couple of cars that at least look nice (even if they do wear big tacky plastic chevrons). The XM and C6 will always look very nice.

    Stuart just likes to tease D people now and then, and it always triggers the same reaction

    Forget about the Ami - what about the M35? Now that's taking quirky to a whole new level!

    Still trying to forgive Peugeot for axing the SM and handing out crap like the LN instead.

    No one has mentioned the H van! When my old man hit our dunny and knocked it over, I should have taken the opportunity to put some wheels on it. At least with the A shaped roof, it would have been more aerodynamic.

    Now I have REALLY upset Gerry Freed (sorry, just joking Gerry)
