    Default C2's Spotted in Sydney

    Since picking up my C2 on August 4th, I've only seen four C2's on the road - and no-one has waved! Here goes...

    Red C2 in CBD (on the day I got mine before I picked it up so the non-wave is excused) - I'm mid thirties, I'd say the driver (bloke) was a good 15 odd years older than me.

    Black C2 with P-Plates seen near Terrigal - 6th August, girl driver.

    Black C2 with roof racks (good idea, got me thinking!) parked at Dural Irrigation a few weeks later about 3:30 in the afternoon.

    Silver C2 seen yesterday - my wife tells me we were passing south through Leppington just before the old El Cabalo Blanco site. The couple again (at a very quick glance) seemed a good ten years older than us - so much for the Playstation Generation demographic!

    Finally, apologies to the pale (silver?) C5 who flashed and waved while I was waiting to turn in Dural - I was a bit slow to catch on and wave back!

    Tony.

    I have seen a few Citroen Plurials recently, which I thought were even more rare then the C2's.

    You're probably right - I've seen 1. (Orange in Cherrybrook.) Maybe another one soon as my wife is obsessing about getting one. The fact we can't afford it yet doesn't seem to bother her!

    Tell me about it! I wave to this same Black C2 every day & never even get a reaction! No one waves at all lately, it's so sad.

    Is this black C2 driven by a grey haired slightly balding 50 plus guy heading north in the mornings? Probably towards Epping I think?

    If yes, then the VP of the CCC of NSW is in BIG trouble!

    It could be. I see it heading North West on Ryde Rd around Hunters Hill/Gladesville.

    citroens (especially the newer models) are become more popular and a lot of people that buy them don't really know that they are purchasing something special....
    i wouldnt be surprised if i waved to another fellow citroener and expect an angry finger in reply.
