    I make it a point to offer a blessing and a moment of silence for every one that I have to send to the crusher. Usually, I drink a beer and have a smoke while I talk to her one last time. I usually pour about half of the beer on the carcass just so she knows that I am honored.

    Goodbye my little soulmate. :crying:

    "Déesse" Roland Barthes, 'Mythologies', 1957

    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.

    (Umberto Eco [Ed], The History of Beauty, Rizzoli, NY, 2004)

    I knew that those cars in that pic were all red fluid cars.
    Some people appreciate wine. I let them drink it while I drink beer and appreciate the DS.

    An absolute timeless classic. World renowned and now world respected. It's about fokking time!

    Should I try and make a Dexron joke now?

    Appreciate this: This baby had to be running when she got rolled over.
    She is bent from head to toe, and remarably, the rear bumper is okay.

    It goes nicely with the lick and stick paper QC stickers that are still in the door jambs from the day she was built.

    I dunno. Never seen a build sheet before.
    And another interesting tidbit that disagrees with the Reynolds book is the blue body with the tobacco interior.

    Correct! Bleu Camargue was not delivered with Targa Tabac (tobacco) only Bleu Delta was.

    BUT! and that's an important BUT, if you look on top of your production sheet, it says : DEROGATION COULEUR.
    and that means it was authorised to depart from standard production colours. So it was built like that, Why? I guess following a special order placed in advance at the factory for the car to be finished along this combination.

    I remember that you could do this in those days, and probably still can , a long as you were prepared to wait and prepared to pay.

    You washed both? Are you also not sure which to take tomorrow?

    Tim, Your car, it is such a beauty, in every way. In the past 5 years of being here you've posted these pics a few times.
    I never tire seeing them, they depict a loved D of the first order.
    Thanks for sharing them.

    Where it all started my Gran was a sales woman for Citroen


    And our first DS in the family

    This was a DS19 that was nearly new trade in that my Gran sorted out, best of all it was a French spec too

    Hi Dan,

    Looks like Grandma must have been French right? D in the background wears a Paris number plate as well as sign on windscreen.
    Good to know also that the Dees were leaking way back when they were new too!

    Thanks Richo. I always learn much from your insightful contributions...and pics! Dan where would that photo be taken of the new ID? They are tantalizing shots.

    My son is getting his learners at the moment and he is teetering on the brink of peugeot / citroen. I have collected the components for an interesting early D but it has to be his passion...or a shared passion at least. Maybe I'm wise to let him go with 404 / 405 / 505. They are so cheap for one thing and I don't want to make him 'mini-me' - My D has been a long road. Great, but long. We all know the feeling of keeping multiple Ds in good shape.

    Tim
