Welcome to Found Around Town, where we feature cars we find in a city where interesting ones are rare because everyone drives a Prius or rides a bicycle: Austin, Texas.
Every now and then, I start freaking out because I've run out of good cars to feature on Found Around Town. What I do in that case is go for a drive around the city's mecca of weirdness, the neighborhoods around South Congress Avenue. It's a trick that never lets me down, and it's exactly how I found this awesome Citroën DS in a parking lot earlier this week.
If there was ever a car that needed no introduction, it's the DS. We all know it and love it for its spaceship-esque looks, absurdly advanced technology for its time, president-saving tendencies and 20-year lifespan. I'm just gonna come out and say it — it's quite possible the DS is the coolest car of all time.
Of all the DSes I've seen, this one certainly isn't in the best of shape, but it's far from being decrepit, either. A new paint job is in order, but other than that, it appeared to be fairly well taken care of. The car also just received a pair of the newest Texas license plates. I'd be really curious to see how it drives.
As always, Super Jalopnik bonus points to the people who can tell me what year this one is.
Would you cruise around in a classic Citroën?
