    No matter what cars peak your interest it should be on every enthusiast bucket list to drive DS, simply superb.
    I can't think of a better way to enjoy one than how Lars and his wife do.

  • Absolutely true! Deesse drives like nothing else before, and not much else after. Beyond that, she's one of the most beautiful, and probably the most well-thought out vehicles ever designed.

    What a beauty...

    I've always loved the DS, long before I really understood WHAT it was. I'm in the design business and I could appreciate the unique style. It wasn't until a few years back that I really understood the significance of the car that I decided I had to own one. It took me two years to find the right car (there are very few of them in the US) and when I did, I bought it. It was in Reno and I flew there and drove it over 2000 miles to Texas to bring it home.

    I've been driving it almost every day the last year and it's been fantastic. The ride comfort is like no other car on earth. The room, the quality of materials, the sheer brilliance of all the engineering is amazing. I've owned around 35 cars in my lifetime and nothing comes close to the DS. If you can find a good one, buy it. You'll never let it go.

    Beautiful. There's just nothing else quite like a DS.

    My father owned two different DSs in the 1960's. The first was a DS 19 in the early 60's and then a DS 21 "Grand Palais" (either a 1967 or 1968 model). Now THAT was a car...it had the softest leather seats , the plushest carpet, the thickest soft roof material imaginable. My father had told me that the Citroen dealer had imported this one for the use by de Gualle on the presumption that Eisenhower was close to death and that it would be needed here. When Ike apparently seemed to get better, the dealer was allowed to sell the car.
    My father kept that car until the mid '70s. He would have kept it if it were reasonable to keep it running but parts were scarce and he needed a practical car instead of a great one. The car was scrapped, but before it was towed away, my father removed the SEATS, both the buckets from the front and the rear bench. he liked them so much that he made platform mounts and kept them in his living room for about 15 years.
    The car was under-powered and it had no air conditioning, but it was as comfortable a ride as I ever had. I wish I could find one like that in good condition, and that I could afford it!
