Wow, that's a beautiful machine.

I've never seen one of those before, what's wrong with it having an LPG conversion? Surely that is a good thing.

I never 'got' the DS thing when I was young, but I have to admit they've grown on me over time.

I'd love to know the capacity of that LPG tank though. That looks HUGE!

I still prefer the "Berline" - here's mine.

However, the break is growing on me, and an LPG conversion would make it a more economic prospect for the daily commute.

Anybody from here bidding on it?

LPG rocks 8)
40p a litre makes sense to me, £20 to fill my car up, lasts me a week :D

The DS was far ahead of its time, lovely car.

Beautiful Grahame...very jealous :)

I guess LPG makes sense...but not with such a HUGE tank.

Oneday I'll have an SM, DS and CX in the garage....yeh, right :( :roll:

I always thought those cars were cool, but the BUTTON coming out of the floor for a brake pedal never engendered much confidence-that and the single spoke steering wheel are truly French engineering!
