Apart from my AX, I've seen no older French stuff out and about around here for ages :(

Was driving through Chippenham (Wiltshire one) the other day and saw an old DS, couldnt get the number as it was in a line of cars, looked like a pale light Blue or Green colour

A 205GTi 1.6 I've not seen before...
An early 205 GTi 1.6

I do apologise for the picture quality... It was around 05:30 in the morning and I relied on a streetlight and my head torch for illumination!

Heading from Swindon to Southampton I spotted an off white Citroen DS (it turned off at J14). Reg PKE 306L, and it features in Wikipedia!!!

Did you notice James that the file on Wiki was authored by Mic of Reading Berkshire? His link shows other interesting pictures and I wondered if we might already know him? :wink: :-D :-D

I did notice the name, but I don't know if they are a member of the forum. It was a lady driving.

Hope you didn't see it driving or parked on the road as MOT check says the MOT expired on 5 July 2018! :lol:
