    Why? Such places exist everywhere, though few advertise quite like this. Ever car I have owned has gone to a scrapper, because nobody wanted it, even for free. The most recent was a running 25 y.o. with only 100,000 on the clock and good paint and rubber.

    What happens to a 405 now?

    Mr Cavanagh sponsors this forum on the proceeds of a related business.

    PS Or have I missed something? Is this a reseller who exploits those with little cash or credit?

    You sir are way too serious.

    A 504 being the trash car is definitely a logical choice of course.

    I'd just rather it was a barina or a dunny door.

    Yup. Paying $185 for a non-Citroen is way to much.
    Once upon a time:


    Many R4s (incl. fourgonnette), R5LS, R16TS.


    GS 1015, 1220, sedans and wagons.
    CX 2200, 2400.
    ID 1966, 1969, DS21H, DSpecial, DS23 Pallas.
    C5 2002, 2004 petrol and diesel.
    D Special 1974
    Xantia Activa 1998 (look out Gulargambone)
    GS 5 speed sedan (what a tale)
    1986 2CV6
    CX25GTi 1985 auto
    CX2500 IE Pallas 1985 auto
    DS23EFI 1975 Pallas

    And now:

    C5 2.2 HDI 2005 wagon
    DS23 1973 Pallas

    Yup it's very misleading. Who'd pay $185 for that?

    Most people wouldn't take take a second look at the car. And I daresay the choice of images was coincidental to the to the web page.
