Sometimes a Great Notion…
Makes for an Interesting Car

Posted on February 20, 2014 Comments (0)

French car manufacturer Citroen has, for most of its 95 years, stayed out of the US market. Though never a significant portion of the market, their aerodynamically efficient DS models were sold here for a time. North Americans were generally ignorant and unappreciative of the design and engineering qualities of the DS models but many people who owned them developed a fierce loyalty which carries through to today.

Dave Burnham of Delanson, NY, near Schenectady, services and sells used Citroens.  His site features a Maserati powered 5-speed SM which is being offered for $3K more than it sold for new in 1972. But frankly, it is still a deal at $15K. 

Check out this SM Road Test video.
