That looks like the from medway Citroen? anyway, a nice car and good on you for saving it. What did you do with the TE? Reason I ask I see it has the wider black steel wheels on it and im after a set.

I noticed that too, and I rather like it. Citroen were not using the world's most attractive typeface in the 90s!

yea they are i done it on the white one purly because the badges were manky and much prefer it like that plus keeps people guessing what it is i couldnt beleive how many people ask me what it is. plus it made the white one quite unexpected to young chavs as it had ax gt twin choke carb on it and made a massive difference with the ladders i had on the roof made quite a gd sleeper for a 1400

I do like the look of the white one. I had a 14 for my first car... brilliant. Shame you scrapped it, as I would have had the 2 drivers side doors off you :lol:

Good luck with the 16 TXS... Must be nice to have central locking at last :wink:

the white one was fairly rotten underneath and it did have central locking electric windows when i got it i gutted it and completely changed the interior to identical to the silver one.
