20,000 clicks in a goddess

In 1955 it looked like it had fallen from the sky, but for us the Citroen DS has been suprisingly practical transport in the six months we've owned one. It has been reliable, always enjoyable and not too weird. Well, it's a little weird: the brake pedal looks like a mushroom and the car rises before it will take off and squats when parked. Inside is a huge red velour lounge suite and a gangly single-spoke steering wheel. But otherwise it's pretty normal for a car from the future. We really love it. Thank you France.
