    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.

    Do they ever ! Have a go at this site on BX Citroens from a few guys including Yohsuke Narabayashi (M.D) when it comes to keen Francophiles these guys have few peers.

    Great site Alan,
    I agree the Japanese are quite fanatical when it comes to Citroens, I've found a number of very elborate sites with no doubt some very useful information..... if you read Japanese, fantastic elaborate diagrams and illustrations, but all text in squigles.
    ah so!

    I was about to give you a URL for a site to convert Japanese to English only to find it's been relocated & no longer contains the Japanese to English translations. Has anyone else got a site that will do this? If not I'll mail Yohsuke & I have no doubts he will oblige. BTW Yohsuke's site has got a lot of it translated to English these days so is much more useful than it used to be. In cases where this is not the case, it is helpful to see info elsewhere & then go to the Jap site for the diagrams. I often do this with the BX DIY & see things from two perspectives
