That is one ugly car, that is so ugly it's beautiful. Almost like an ugly duckling, I'd love to see it grown up.

Beautiful picture Marti.

I have fond memories about this Citroen - one of the first cars I drove as a kid on my uncle's farm in the Karroo (South Africa) during the early sixties, and seeing a well-restored one is still a beautiful sight. The one we payed with had no brakes, so at each farm gate one had to gear down to reduce speed, let a brother or cousin jump out to open the gate while you had to drive around in a circle next to the farm track. I would not mind to lay my hands on one again!

Exellent photo.
