Citroens
Randy, you hit a good spot with me. I have always loved Citroens, since I rode in one in 1957, at Tiffenbach & Yetter, on South Broad St., in my hometown, of Trenton, NJ. Somehow, they managed to obtain a dealership, when the new DS came out, and I was just a kid cruising with my friends on a warm night. We spotted this odd looking car, in fact, he may have had 2 or 3 on the lot. I never felt anything like that. You sunk into the seat and the carpet, too. It was unreal. The pneumatic suspension raised and lowered the car. It was way beyond anything we had ever seen. The second one I drove was a new one in around 2005 or so. My friend, Joe Gaskill (may he rest in peace), pulled up in my driveway with a loaded sedan, and we rode around for an hour, before he had better return it to the dealer on Rt 35, in Little Silver, NJ. Well, the salesman told him to take it out for a ride. He dropped me off first, so I'm not sure how that went over at the dealership. I have around 100 Citroen models, from pre Traction Avant to mid 1970s including 37 2CVs and Commercial. too. I will try and take a few pictures in the near future, because one of my favorite models, is a French made Traction Avant Commerciale with a vintner loading barrels of wine in back, with a dog watching, all on a cobblestone base. Unreal!
