DOTS-O-Rama Sunday, San Francisco Edition: Citroën DS21

This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we check out interesting street-parked cars located in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. Citroëns survive everywhere!


Steve was heading to the leathery action at the last Folsom Street Fair when he came across this very solid-looking Goddess:

I'm a car nut, nothing on your caliber, but I spotted this DS21 on the way down to the Folsom Street Fair yesterday! It was parked @ SF City Hall.

I can't place the year, but it's a 1965-1970? I realize a ton of these were produced in Europe, and I see some interesting cars around the city, but first time I've seen a DS! A few people were coming up asking "WHAT IS THIS?!?!?!" while I was photographing it. Always interesting to see their faces when I excitedly said, "Citroen! It's French!"

Obviously not a show piece, seems to get regular use, well, "regular" as a Citroen of this era could get...
