Ricky Vs Citroen Ds21 Pallas — Well, about the only thing I know how to operate on this car is the ignition & the raising & lowering of the suspension. This is a 1972 Citroen DS21 Pallas I bought from an old Vietnamese guy who stood tall at 5'3". Initially, he wanted to trade an old 1974 Cadillac Coupe DeVille I owned, but realized, it was entirely too big for his 4'11" wife. LOL. After decyphering 75% of what he was telling me, My Dad drove this car home, because I have no idea how to operate the steering column mounted 4 speed transmissioin stick. Since I purchased the car, I took the entire engine & transmission apart & have been scratching my head wondering why....

Pros: Innovative design beyond it's years

Cons: How to drive a 4spd transmission gear shift on a steering column????

Hydraulic Suspensions.. Lights Turn With Steering Wheel. Old Lux! — what do you want me to say, in the 80's was a noble car to own. Never seen one around here, would love to know if someone has...

Pros: super comfort. It felt like a couch. Great to go to the beach!

Cons: ..well, beside that mine was not mint, no complaints whatsoever.

Prefect European Quality, Well Ahead Of It's Time By Chris

This would have to be the best smoothest car to drive. It feels like your floating on air, you cant even feel a rail track when it's driven over. Read More

The Squashed Frog By Katie

The first car I ever brought. It's a real pleasure to drive and floats along the road. Not exactly the prettiest of cars, however, once you get past the look and try the ride, it's really a neat car... Read More

Citroen Ds 23 Pallas By Hassan

We used to call this car Dizzy Lizzy, it was the same model as the car that General de Gaulle went around in. It had a funny gear lever and hydropneumatic suspension. The body was two-toned. It ha... Read More

There Are Cars And Then There Is The Citro├źn Ds. By Nils

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 spiri... Read More

An Awesome Car! By Russell399

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
