    Mad Cyril reacted to Longblackcoat in Citroen Hydropneumatique 1954 - 2018 +++ An attempt at a tribute thread +++ Caution: André's Asylum inside!   
    I have never, ever had a problem with Citroen hydraulic suspension. Many people can say this because they've never owned/sat in/travelled in an LHM-equipped Citroen, and it would therefore be impossible for them to experience such an issue. Fair enough. But that's not me.
     
    You see I, on the other hand, have owned a bevy of BXs, have travelled circa 200,000 miles in them, and have never had a leak, a failure, a blowup .... nothing. I did change the spheres a couple of times because maintenance, true, but at £35 a corner that's hardly a killer. And the ride was just brilliant.
     
    Sad to see them disappear.

    I used to polish mine with baby oil. Worked a treat and lasted a couple of weeks.

    Britain, always coming up with some stupid scheme to cut this or stop that. Always half thought out and never does what it's meant to. Still looks good on the news and ticks a few boxes.

    These 3 series BMW's have the most miserable interior of any car ever made. The material on the seats remind me of the super cheap co-op school trousers my mum used to buy me when I was 9.

    I reckon these are quite a sharp looker, not sure about those wheels though, I know theyre probably fitted by the importer but these look better without 'fripperies' IMO. FFS listen to me banging on about which is the 'purest' model of Skoda Favorit on the internet, what a friggin loser

    Have you ever tried putting a picture hook into a ceramic tile?  That sir is your issue.  A much better idea would be to use "no more nails" on the back of the picasso.

    Agreed. The Sud truly is a thing of beauty (mind you, so is Ians Bond so don't go trusting my judgement ).
     
    My biggest smile raiser is my 2cv...

     
    I've owned this for over 18 years now and love it (even though I never use it)

     
    This was always one of my dream cars which I finally got to own about seven years ago (but again I never get the time to use it)

     
    And this is used for runs to the tip and B&Q, towing the trailer or whatevers broken down, pulling up tree stumps etc...
    I've really bonded with it since spending three months welding it. It must be the world most solid Range Rover now. I'm planning to use it every day as soon as I find an oil well in my back garden.

    You need that "Detailing World" guy who checked the thickness of the paint on his Astra before applying 57 coats of whale jizz for ultimate protection. He would sort it out no problem, except he would take six months to do it.
     
    The machine polish and fancy potions ideas are all spot on but this is Autoshite, surely you have a 15 year old half empty bottle of crusty T-Cut in your shed??? That and some old pants for application and polishing off and job jobbed!

    For just 600 fine British pounds you could own this slice of premium-grade Spen King-engineered chod. Proper Perkins Prima power with a measly 160,000 (probably very loud) miles under its belt, seven seats so it's virtually an MPV and the kind of aesthetic wonderment that only comes with a car styled by at least four different people.
     
    Admittedly potential* rust problems may cause any lucky buyers some slight* financial pain if they're not skilled with a welder, and that headlining has a distinct stained, crispy old mattress in a skip air about it. But for the money and the potential OMGMPGs involved it's hardly too much to moan about. Give it a good wash/polish inside and out and it will be transformed.
