I remember one DS that used to be parked outside his house - a black-n-white/cream job, that went for scrap. In fact when the car was being lifted by the crane, without bottom reinforcements, it almost folded in two.

Saying which, I also recollect now that DS' had fibreglass roofs, no?

There was a gentleman in Andheri west - complete Citroen fanatic (like me - he he !!). I'd visited him once, he ran a self-styled outfit called the "Club Citroen de Bombay" His place was a Citroen lover's dream come true. A DS, a 2CV, a 2CV van, a rare 'Ami' among other Citroens in various stages of disrepair. He also had a hoard of parts, including gas bulbs for the famed Hydro-pneumatic suspensions.
Wonder what happened to him.
In fact, his DS participated in the VCCCI abut 15 years back. A grand sight she was..

Here is a picture a friend shared with me. The registration is Pune, but not sure where it was taken.

The car did take part in a rally in Bombay in 1985.
