Disregarding the 2CV which I've had years & sleeps in a parallel universe I'm quite new to l'autos Francais or, at least owning/running one.

About 3 months ago I got a C15 which is not even a model supported by this forum, but under that model specific box & Visa front end it's a regular PSA parts bin special PLUS the forums that seemed more appropriate seemed a bit sleepy. [originally I thought maybe Citroen folk had less time &/or problems than those with Cadillacs (or Jeeps, for that matter) or perhaps it's a cultural difference between us & our colonial cousins - but now know that neither are the explanation]

So, having monitored the traffic here for a while, & found more than one post a day & some fairly quick responses,I thought I'd see what I could gain from/donate to the activity.

Just ask that you bear with me while I find my feet - & forgive me if I decide to revive some dormant thread, for whatever reason, remember that while I might've read it before, only now can I join in.

Oh, & I'm very impressed with how easy it was to register AND how quickly my a/c was authorised - others could learn from that (just hope I've not spoken too soon!)

Hi and welcome...

C15 is a Visa +Bits, so your OK here,
You forgot how silly it gets...some bad bad jokes on the Joke thread
Check the Music threads.....I still use the play-list :)

Thanks, good to be aboard - & having successfully logged in again don't think I did speak too soon.

The Cadillac & Jeep references will now make more (some?) sense.

I couldn't see that the Visa was supported either - clearly I shouldn't have assumed the model list was definitive!

Music threads? Fancy me not spotting those - I'll certainly look a bit closer but, for now, I'll be concentrating on the dirty fingernail stuff - however old!!!

There is at least one other C15 hiding around here somewhere...

Seen it, love it - I've wanted one from long before I got mine.

For what it's worth: that's one of the last built - & the only RHD one ever but, I believe there are a couple of other private imports here.

Do remember someone, on another forum, getting rather excited about a crew cab tipper built on this chassis/cab.
