This car was off the road for 27 years. The engine came from the other DS (See video "Engine swap...") which was also off the road for about 20 years.
I borrowed the "Sweet" from Dave's Farm (Thanks Dave). I hope he's not gonna sue me :oD

Citroen DS21. First start after 7 years
Šis automobilis stovėjo garaže maždaug septynerius metus. Prieš tai
jis pats įveikė kelionę iš Klaipėdos į Tauragę, tačiau, nors buvo
važiuojantis, buvo ne per geriausios būklės. Perėmę Citroeną savo
globon, nusprendėme jį atgaivinti. Po septynerių metų praleistų
drėgname garaže jis užsivedė ir prisikėlė, tiesiogine to žodžio
prasme. Šis vaizdo įrašas buvo nufilmuotas 2011-11-10. Filmas
neredaguotas, kad būtų matoma visa veiksmų eiga. Automobilio pagaminimo
metai - 1972.

1909 Cadillac First Start in 79 Years
This 1909 Cadillac was stripped down into a speed car, raced and then
parked in 1934. I was acquired in the early 1960's for restoration. The
restoration was put on hold for many years and then re-started a few years
ago. After multple checks of the ignition and timing we finally achieved
the first start on July 28, 2012. There is still more to do to tune the
engine and sort it out for driving later this year.
The spray on the first try happened when we left the primer cups open. It
runs better with them closed.
And the owner did make it a bit easier by adding an electric starter to the

Classic Revealed: Is the 1969 Citroen DS 21 the most beautiful car of all time?
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 1969 Citroen DS 21 is perhaps the ultimate
French luxury car. It represents the best (and some would say worst) of
French Automotive technology, design and research and development. Think of
it as France's automotive equivalent of sending a man to the moon.
Here a short list just some of the unique features that 1969 Citroen DS 21
Adjustable and self-leveling suspension that allows the car to drive on
only three wheels an can raise and lower the car from 3 to 14 inches
- Headlights that steer up to 80 degrees
- Aerodynamic futuristic body design
- Hydraulic suspension, clutch and even transmission
This just a short list of features that make the Citroen DS such iconic
car. In fact many would say the Citroen DS features the world's most
influential auto design. It was named the most beautiful car of all time by
the prestigious Classic and Sports car Magazine.
Check out the this video as we show you what makes the 1969 Citroen DS 21
such an iconic car.

Slideshow Part2 Kaufdorf car graveyard September 2008
Kaufdorf Autofriedhof - Switzerland's vintage car graveyard.
It was the biggest graveyard of its kind in Europe -- a vast metal jungle
of more than 1,000 rusting vintage cars including forgotten British
Wolseleys, "sit up and beg" Ford Prefects, rotting Porsches and even the
wreck of a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud.
The collection of decaying old-timers, which go back to the late-1920s,
sits in makeshift corrugated iron garages and among trees on the edge of
Kaufdorf some 10 miles south of Switzerland's capital Bern.
After surviving for 75 years, the authorities have declared that the
collection is an environmental hazard and intend to clear it by court order
later this year. But the plan has provoked uproar among concerned Kaufdorf
locals and more than just a few other Swiss residents. A campaign to
preserve the site was started last month when an open day was held. The
organisers expected about 50 people to attend, but 10,000 turned up. Franz
Messerli, whose father founded the car cemetery, said: "We never expected
such interest. Our aim is to preserve it for posterity as a national work
Mr Messerli's father, Walter, opened what was originally intended as a
vehicle breaker's yard in 1933. A part-time racing driver and scrap-metal
dealer, he was fascinated by cars and even taught himself to be a mechanic.
At its peak, his collection numbered about 2,000 vehicles.
