Won't be able to bring it to the GTG. Need to bring two of the kids with me and the younger ones can't travel in the DS.

if we have another drive day later in the year I will bring the D.

If we get enthusiastic takers I will organise; if not, it will be just a good idea that never grew legs ..
Others may have different routes to suggest?

Captiva ? No ? Wonderfully reliable. On 180K. kilometres now, and one breakdown ever in 68K. and three and a half years. .....and it can be noted for thickness of paint unlike some other car.. Regards Styria

I'd be up for a drive but weekend days are hard for me with small children. My wife is probably taking the kids to visit some of her relos for a couple of weeks around september this year so will have more time then.

outside of that, I normally go for late night drives once everyone else is asleep, but this probably doesn't suit anyone else!

since getting the DS back on the road I have been doing small improvements and using the car more. I also mounted an auxiliary electric fan like the fuel injected cars have. The other night I drove over the concord in the traffic and it was good to have it as a crawled through top ryde.

At some point I am going to need to get the hydraulic pump rebuilt as it is leaking more and more.



This is next to a friend's 72 DS21ie Pallas 5 speed.

The injected (i.e.) models use D-Jet, same as mercedes did in the period.

I decided I wanted a dash light to show me when my electric fan comes on. Luckily I had a spare warning light on my dash - there is one for parking lights that are not fitted to my car. Would have been preferable if it were green, but its red. All I needed was some wiring and a spare bulb holder from my parts instrument cluster.
