Seeing one Citroen running healthy in the wild is a rare and exciting occurrence so what are the odds of seeing two perfectly health French sex machines in your local grocery store parking lot? If you live in California like reader dwegmull then it is probably better than most but still quite rare and exciting. Clicky the button to read his account of stumbling across these prime examples of one of our favorite makes, and for a few more pictures as well.
I recently finished reading the excellent “Citroen DS the complete story” by Jon Pressnell and was trying to explain my attraction to these cars to my non-hoon, Corolla driving, girlfriend. Yesterday morning, as we walked out of the grocery store we stumbled upon a red DS21. While pointing it out to her, I noticed the back of a 2CV parked a few spots away! At that point, the the camera phone was out of the pocket. I managed to take the few pictures linked below before the 2CV and the DS drove away. I did manage to speak with the DS owner who apparently did not know the 2CV owner and confirmed that his car is very reliable thanks to good maintenance. I hope this story and the linked images are good enough for sharing with the rest of the Hooniverse.
Yes I know these vehicles were not seen in traffic but so what… they had to drive in traffic to get to this parking lot, and seeing as they were caught in California they definitely hit traffic when they left the lot. Thanks for sending the photos in dwegmull!.
