1972 Citroen ID Review
Cosmically Fabulousness. — It's almost 40 years old, what's to say? I like the fact that it was way ahead of it's time, with great fuel economy (26 highway for a '72 5 passsenger sedan), crumple zones, 3 point seatbelt harness in the rear seats, integral roll cage, self leveling suspension, self adjusting breaks, turning headlights, etc etc etc.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: The style and coolness factor.
Cons: learning to work on it... French mechanics must have had strong but skinny "Muppet arms"
