Mid 1970s Citroen SMs in front of a typical Mid-Century Modern home in Palm Springs, California, when I visited a few years ago.
Caught this elegant French Citroen Traction Avant just outside the grounds of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Cernobbio, Italy. Ever innovative Citroen gave the Traction Avant, made from 1934 to 1957, three engineering advancements new to mass production: front-wheel drive, unitary body without separate frame, and four-wheel independent suspension. The big trunk identifies this one as no older than 1952.
