Things you do Things you do

Although not me. Sitting in a little cafe. Woman comes in, grabs a tissue, wipes some dog crap off her shoe, throws the used tissue in the bin and walks out without a word of thank you or anything else. The owner can only stare in amazement and tell each customer who comes in.

DOTS: BX Van DOTS: BX Van

I was driving around my old hometown and noticed that this old Citroën BX 19 TGD Break Van had moved from its usual spot. While taking pictures the very kind owner came over, who told me he has owned it for 22 years (which explains why it has been around the same spot for almost all of my live)...

Spotted at Heidelberg Castle Recently Spotted at Heidelberg Castle Recently

Spotted this beauty near Heidelberg Castle while I was in the region recently for work. Toured the castle over the weekend and while walking back down to the main part of town I came across this.  Poor thing was out in the rain. The train from the airport to Mainz, where I was staying, went past the Opel factory. ...

Look, I’m a real blogger! With a clickbaity title and everything! Ok, fine, it’s a door pocket. Now you know. So, I was clicking through every single listing on Bring-a-Trailer in a trance-like state for hours on end, as you do, and found this Citroen AX GT 5. At first glance, besides some mildly funky angular styling and asymmetrical badge...

What a wonderfully eccentric combination of ‘80s Gallic flair, luxobarge comfort, and remarkably hot-hatch-like driving dynamics. There really isn’t anything else like it, and I am sorely tempted to find one to bring back to the States with...

How My Citroën Got From France To L.A. Via Connecticut How My Citroën Got From France To L.A. Via Connecticut

Hey look, my Citroën has finally made it to Hollywood! A year after I bought it in France. And, eleven months after it was delivered to my parents’ place in Connecticut, it finally made it across another continent to sunny Southern California. Some of this story was posted here as part of a post I did for Live and...

In anticipation for the finale, we reflect on eight cars which nearly made the cut.108. Lancia A112 Abarth 70 PS | 700 kg | 100 PS/tDespite titles, this design was unrelated to Lancia. Rather, it’s an Autobianchi; an experimental Fiat brand formed with the aid of Pirelli and Bianchi of bicycle fame. Debuting in 1969, the A112 became one of...
