Yeah! I know.
But if it helps I can tell you that I grew up in CitroŽns.
From 1963 to 1978 my father had at least 7 DS.
He also worked for a CitroŽn body shopÖ
I used to play in the customers' cars as a kid :O)
So I hope you guys (Citroen newsgroup) have no hard feelings for the
1948 Peugeot 202.
They are all cool cars!

me; no doubt.
We use to buy mostly Citroen ID/DS 19 and DS 21. I remember going to
vacation laying and sleeping on the back shelf under the rear
windshield looking at the stars (during that time the highway safety
organizations were not concerned by the seat belt). Sadly, in 1978, my
father had a fatal accident at the wheel of his DS driving to Rodez
France. Like it or not, cars play a big part in our lives!
Hey! I have a question for you all.
I have noticed a lot of movies use the DS in their pictures.
Would anybody have a list of movies using CitroŽns (more particularly
I know Super Mario Brothers is using a DS in one of the scene. They
often modify them for the pictures. If it is not in context, that's
