I like the colours as well ...Way2go wrote:I reckon Matts link originated 1st April not the previous publication in July 1999 as they say.
"The BX Dommage was only available in the colors 'Fraise Abimee' (red) and 'Bleu Mamalou' (blue)"
Google-translate has Fraise Abimee = Damaged Strawberry
and Mamalou is not a French word, autodetect in Google-translate says it's Turkish
Then I found this reference to Mamalou in google
Several years ago I worked in Holland for a couple of years, and there are blocks of flats in areas, that are solely inhabited by the Turkish community, so I suspect "Bleu Mamalou" is a very esoteric reference

EDIT 2: http://www.ktv.no/~oyl-ktv/lyrics/mama%20lou.htm
and from Citroen-forum.nl
http://www.citroen-forum.nl/forums/viewthread/163077/ a thread titled "Welke BX hier niet te koop geweest" (which BX has not been for sale), go to the second page and a posting by XBXG with a picture of a BX 11, and he says
—> de BX 11 heeft wel bestaan
—> de BX Dommage heeft niet bestaan
which speaks for itself and is the consensus of the thread, and they too cannot translate "Bleu Mamalou"
