Citroen Style

I must not be a typical Brit because I seem to have an affinity for things French.  This is something I have acquired over the years (and may be the reason I was driven from the UK!).  The French do things their own way and it results in some really interesting stuff.  The Citroen DS is just such an interesting thing.  I first noticed one when traveling on a ferry and was fascinated when it started up and the suspension inflated.  I had never seen something like that before.

The looks didn’t appeal to me then because I was used to the more familiar vehicles of the time.  Now I have come to appreciate it for being a stylish looking vehicle.  Sure, it has quirks that might make it a nuisance to own but it certainly looks very swish.  One was on display at Exotics@RTC and I was drawn to it.  It certainly didn’t hurt that the owner had applied hubcaps that looked like some sort of hypnosis device.  What a fantastic addition to the day.
