I guess it takes a bit of irrationality to be a Citroen owner. After all
who in the right mind would want to put up with leaking hydraulics,
leaning back wheels, fragile cooling fan motors, disposable stepper
motors and insane depreciation? On the other hand, Alfa owners would make
us looks like Jap car owners. When I started work I wanted a second hand
Alfetta as my first car. My old man just said, "Son, you are not ready
for it yet...."

i got a few more...

#32 Home is where the Citroen is most of the time and therefore you go home to the
workshop and visit the house that you bought or rent for a bath and change of clothes
then go to work.

#33 Your bank account reflects your distributorship with Citroen France and as a dealer
with most spare parts shops.

#34 Your total mileage (odometer) in the Citroen is made up of generally a major part the
distance it takes to get to the workshop... the rest is half way to work/home or half way
to an urgent meeting/appointment.

#35 You have a room specifically set aside in your house/apt for Citroen spareparts and a
large cabinet of files/references etc which is Citroen related.

#36 When you go to a bookshop, the first thing you do when you see a magazine on the
shelf is to look for a Citroen article, if none you'd move onto the next magazine....
