FBB: That blue DS I've found really difficult to find decent pictures of online, glad you found one wee can all enjoy. What's the story with the white one? I've seen pictures of it in an indoor show but know nothing about it, looks mad.

It's from a French Sci-fi/crime film called Fantomas, made in the mid sixties. I only found out about it because one of our suppliers made models of the DS and the Citroen HY van that appeared in the film.
Apparently the Fantomas character dates back to books and comics a hundred or so years ago and he is a sociopathic criminal mastermind. The character was resurrected in the sixties as an alternative to James Bond. I really ought to find out of the films are available on DVD, they look quite fun.
The blue DS came up on a google image search for 'fantomas citroen' but there's no info on the forum I grabbed it from.
Edit - A google search for Citroen DS hotrod finds the owner's blog. It has an LS1 in it.
It's also reminded me of some other odd Citroens I saw at Retromobile a few years back and have had across my desk in model form. *heads back to google.
