YAK Car Pic of the Day


     Many stories were told Friday evening during the Giants of Buffalo event at the Buffalo History Museum about Irv Weinstein’s Citroën, so today seems as good a day as any to feature one here. This one (an authentic French market car — you can tell by the yellow headlights) is the top-of-the-line DS Pallas. Citroën was known for both its quirky styling and its out-there engineering (or is it the other way around?); their slogan, after all, is “Créative Technologie.” The hydropneumatic self-levelling suspension system, headlights which turned with the front wheels, and the famous single-spoke steering wheel, were all Citroën hallmarks. Looks of most of the Citroëns from the ’50s thru the ’70s were from the “Love It or Hate It” school of styling. I think they’re great, especially compared to the present day “School of Cookie Cutter” styling we see on the road.
