    For those that haven’t seen these before have a gander.
    I don’t know whether to feel jealous or take pity, the maintenance required for this little collection could be devastating.
    But it is rather tasty.
    Best photos of D’s out there I think.

    Stunning, and making me and my DSpecial very envious!

    Yes, these are indeed gorgeous photos. I think I'm suffering 'storage envy. I love that workshop with the roof lights. It's even got a big leather sofa. Jeez. i could live in there with the cars!

    Bit long (8 min) but very impressive (except for the soundtrack). DS23 wreck-to-wow.
    A real artist.
    This is Sicily, parallel universe.
    All of this, obviously, IMHO.

    good choice of musical accompaniment Don! Not recommended as suitable viewing for eplipectics though!

    Mrs No Reason just received some photos at work and thought I would be interested, post Tracey in Darwin, is it a DS or ID? I would punt on a Heidelberg ID but curious for elbow pad observations!

    Thanks for posting the link.
    Lots of similar pictures can be found on the net and truely they reinforce the fact that no one has yet successfully been able to better the original shape of the goddess.
    Most of these attempts are rather ugly and pointless. The car is really better when left alone.
    I know this one is Diesel and may be of interest from the technical point of view, but really, with Europe now considering banning diesel fuels soon it makes it even more irrelevant.

    That must be a 'leboncoin' default, it has a distributor, spark plugs and leads - there is something odd where the air cleaner would be but from what I see not a diesel!

    I had a tyre kicker looking at my DS over the weekend, convinced that I had somehow made a mistake. Surely those features are not " factory original", and that is with an original car!

    That is sad Michael, looks good in your pics - I think you are under selling it, so it should sell quite quickly. . .
