1969 Citroen DS Review
There Are Cars And Then There Is The Citroën Ds. — Driving a DS is like floating on a flying carpet. The design is still futuristic even though it's over 50 years old. Possibly the most important model in the history of cars. It embodies the spirit of everything french and avant garde. DS means Godess in french - and it's truly the Godess of all cars.
Pros: Design, Technology and everything it stands for.
Cons: The engine could be stronger, but on the other hand it doesn't really matter, does it?

It is one of the best cars I've ever known! 30mpg, shockingly beautiful looks, okay performance, comfortable, and reliable. It was imported from France. My Citroen DS19 will beat the crap out of an... Read More
An Awesome Car!
My car was a 1961 ID 19 actually (not listed in the categories). This was my first car. The car had a 4-speed manual gearbox - no Citromatic for me. The original engine (60 hp - no syncro on first) wa... Read More
