That's very cool! Is Rat ducking down behind the dashboard? I don't see him in any of the pics...

Now that is a Citroen you don't see everyday.  Very nice and excellent job on the hand brushed finish.

Cool idea. That poor four-cylinder won't know what hit it, those intakes and exhausts are bigger than the cylinder bore...

You sir, are not well, and should seek immediate counseling.

A hotrod Citroen gives me the screaming willies all the way down to the cellular level.  But what a cool build!

Wow, this is obviously a fun subject but I can't help but also notice how really well executed it is.  Nice window moldings and mods.

I can't quite make out the two stickers: what do they say?
