    Default ROSSO (Merrick and Rosso) on the DS!!

    Anyone listening to Nova 96.9 (sydney) this morning? Rosso revealed that his favourite car is a Citroen DS ( i think he said he has one) and that if he had to have a tattoo, the he'd get that. I just thought it was interesting, and wouldnt have picked him as an enthusiast at all.

    yeep.........Rosso's commented a few times about liking Cits. More so on Novas earlier days. About 4 year ago he mentioned about going to look at an "old Citroen" that he foudn in the paper etc...
    Both the boys have special tastes, whilst we know Rosso likes Cits, Merrik like bikes, infact he prefers Ducati's and owns a Multistrada, for those of you who know the brand will know this is a great bike, but takes an eclectic to pay that much for such a type of bike.
    Good to see these two funny boys are also enthusiasts. - Chris

    Yep, and simply by bringing your average funny pub talk to the masses, they can now afford to buy these tasty machines

    What time was this on - I didnt get to listen this morning as there was a school Strike and missed the show?

    Maybe someone should send him a Aussefrogs sticker at the studio?

    If someone sent one, maybe we should put a little note in the letter saying who we are etc etc

    Who is going to send it, Id be happy to but I didnt hear the show this morning and I wouldnt know what to put in the letter?

    Thats a good Idea, I think I still have an AF sticker lying around somewhere.

    if he is a Cit' enthusiast then he probably has seen this site...

    Not neccessarily, I know many Cit owners who have never heard of Aussiefrogs.

    On another note, I got very drunk with both the boys a few years back when they did a gig @ Mojo's in Freo (before they crossed to the dark side of commercial "crap" FM), they knew mates of mine very well & I introduced the lads to Kronenburg for the 1st time & we drunk it all night! They were giving the French shit but after the show admitted they quite liked France & French things but I didnt even think to mention anything about Citroen. Funny thing is, I drove my DS that night & cabbed it home leaving it parked out the front! Bloody good night! Its good to see the boys have a bit of taste though, shame their new show is such crap (IMHO)

    Actually last week on the show they had a skit with a champage/brown kinda coloured DS in it. Didn't think it was too much to post about, but I guess I was wrong.

    I have just sticker slapped the car - it's at Penrith at the moment having a bit of mech work.

    A fairly original late (very) D Special, engine rebuilt in Qld recently, Pallas seats and door cards, fair paint. It's Vic registered. Apparently they are going to use it this year as their office car!!

    Old Speedy Smith the Sticker Slapper. Well done Paul. Where did you get a new supply of stickers I wonder

    Unless the car is airconned, when the weather gets REAL warm they will migrate.

    Since owning the 2CV, people have come up to me interested in the car & surprisingly some have heard of aussiefrogs but don't own a French car themselves.

    Are these Cit owners on the internet?

    I reckon that on Friday morning they may know about it. I just sent an email to their nova address.
