Nice one Randy! Add me to the Citroen group...
I used to collect model Citroens but sold most a long time ago. I still have some though. I also ran 2CVs, Dyanes, an Ami 8 and a GS full size and loved them all. I started the North Wales section of the Citroen Car Club in the early '70s and was able to either drive or ride in many different ones including an SM, a D Super and a CX. I nearly bought an H Van in France on one holiday. It was in the field next to the gite we were staying in. We spent one evening drinking rather a lot of wine with the market gardener owners and the following morning they pulled the H Van out of the weeds, fitted a battery from a nearby CX Pallas, and I drove the van down the road, for half a mile forgetting we were in France and driving on the wrong side of the road! Insurance, tax, etc...what are they?
Great fun and I have always regretted not trying to buy that van.
