    Well deserved underrated and well earned forgotten.

    Way, way too many other cars out there that are beautifully designed for the ages.

    I did detailing for an import dealer while in college and they sold Citroens. Lovely vehicles.

    So few in my neck of the woods. I think it's been decades since I've seen one.

    I always loved the SM,...

    Beautiful car, hydro-pneumatic self-leveling suspension, Maserati engine (the "M" of SM). I used to see these around, not for a long time though.

    Stunning car even today. What a fantastic design!

    Back in the early 70s, there was usually an SM parked in the hospital parking lot a few blocks from my home. I'd usually find any reason I could to ride my bike that direction just to take another look.

    Citröens looked like spaceships to me. That's a good thing.
