arre that Astra is double as a clothes drying line when parked for the owner

and the m800 pick up

its nicely done but he could have covered the door handle space

and those truck the less said the better

after so much decoration i hope they can carry the cargo

and oh man, when parked, you can hardly see the rear wheels....
They continue to have that on the large models. Driving one is a really different experience, much less road noise and sway. Can be set for different ride heights too.

Oh the DS, it did not leak, it used to slowly sit on its hunches like a obedient puppy. One of my uncle used to have one such car in UK long back and till this day he swears by it everytime he has to change a wheel on any car (jacking up was just a matter of putting a prop and lowering the car!!)

Apart from that ride and handling were just exemplary. So was the engine. However I think it was the break (though not sure)

Ha ha. DS did not leak? Neither you nor your uncle has heard of people getting trapped under leaky Citroens?
My friend. I have lived in Europe in the 1980s and have had to rush a friend to Ziekenhuis because of this kind of accident. And I have seen news in the newspaper several times of incidents like this. Would you like a photograph of a leaky Citroen suspension?
