A traction park

Attracting a lot of attention in Morrison's supermarket car park, this beautifully maintained Citroën can also be seen here on the traction owners' website.  It is a 1949 LHD built in Paris, bought by a local owner in 1987, since when it has done over 100,000 miles. 

Having been a doctor's car for 29 years, it was imported to England in 1969, then registered VLM59G, so from the French department of le Nord, of which Lille is the principal town.


  1. What an absolute gem of a car! Just wish I could take a ride in that dreamy car!

  2. They were doing their supermarket shop in that...?!

  3. Sweet! Someone has put 100K miles on that car? Really?!
