That was a very early Tin Snail Lee, they changed from the 425cc in 1970 and put the heavy weight 602cc/36 bhp in then and it lasted right up to the end in 1990. Not bad when you think that they first appeared in 1948. I have always been fascinated by the ignition system. Both plugs fire at the same time and the one on the compression stroke is the one that goes bang! No distributor to go wrong!

Hetier, you are very lucky to have such lovely cars in your collection.

My first was a Dyane for 2 years then a BX TZD Turbo for 11 years, followed by a Xantia Estate for 4 years

My first French registered Citroën was a C8, followed by 2 Grand C4 Picassos over the 13 years in France. That was near Carcassonne.

Now I am reduced to Kia Nero plug in hybrid because Citroën can't fit a tow bar to their electric or hybrid cars :cry::cry:

I have mentioned before that SWMBO had a wonderful red/white 2CV Dolly for 17 years and we both loved it, but when we moved to France it would have been to difficult to change it to left hand drive.


My ambition for a good while is to grow old disgracefully. So far my wife tells me that I am doing really well!

Almost 8 years old... Ceramic Coating works wonders for those "thinking about it" before winter time...

Mine got a good wash and detail yesterday, went to a car show today, woke up too late to shoot some light painted images like I wanted to...stupid margaritas last night! But it was clean, so I snapped a shot off anyway.

Yeah there's a neat story about the car and how Bill Gates got the first one in the USA even though it wasn't yet an allowable import at the time... gotta love $$$/connections right?!

I recently acquired this vehicle from nearly 20 years of admiration from its previous owner. It's a factory turbo and I wouldn't have it any other way!
