Citroen CX.

In the early 70s, Citroen was faced with a nearly impossible task: replace the DS. In 1975, a replacement finally came, the CX was introduced. While it was a completely new car, it was very similar to the DS. The suspension was still the hydropneumatic suspension found in other Citroen models. It came in a variety of trim levels including the 2400 GTi which was in its time one of the fastest and best handling cars. Those who saw the 2400 GTi badge on the back of it knew they probably didn't stand much of a chance of passing it.

This early turbo diesel model has been sitting in an industrial area around here for a while now. It has a current registration so hopefully it'll be going again soon.
