A Finn says hello!

Post by DSFan » 05 Sep 2014, 18:57

Hi all!

I am a Citroen enthusiast and i have had multiple 2CV´s, DSuper 71, GSA Special 83, BX GTI 1.6 89 and currently i am restoring a DS 23 Ie BVH 73. Pics can be found here if one wants to see.
My current daily driver is dark gray 97 Xantia V6 Exclusive Automatic (that is am currently studying a bit).

I am a "D-model spokesman" of ACRy, that is Finnish Citroen Club. We have quite lively field of Citroen enthusiasts here and lots of knowlege, but i allways seem to ask things that are hard to answer :lol:
That´s why i ended up here.
It is probably needless to say, I am in love of Citroen´s hydropneumatic suspension, especially the DS. Now, That is my true love 8-)

Welcome to the forum. I've just been on the Raid Arctique with three Finnish cars and enjoyed the company of their participants.

Citronut, you are referring to the green things inside the back fender? Yes, they are quite common here in Finland. They were made here and if one had those, the DS survived better the salt they put on the roads at winter. Mine is made out of plastic but most of them are made out of sheet metal.
