Citroen Traction Avant Light 15

Just a few quick lines about this as it's going to be the subject of a much longer article.

I've spent years of my time and driven so many people to distraction (sorry, Nerina!) in my relentless pursuit of a "Light 15" (the 6 - cylinder version), totally without success. However shortly after I came to live in Belgium, I was in a supermarket and just happened to knock a magazine off the shelf. When I picked it back up, it was open at the "car sales" page, and my eye fell straight away on an advert for a Traction for sale to "an amateur" (a way of describing the vehicle as a wreck). It was only 40 miles away so I leapt into the red Cortina and went to see it.

It was only an 11L, the short 4-cylinder and not the long 6-cylinder, for one of which I would die. It's not quite all there either, but seeing as neither am I, that makes two of us. It was also overpriced. However in a fit of madness, I bought it, hired a trailer and towed it back.

It's travelled quite a few miles on a trailer, as you can see in the photograph, and it now lives in a warehouse in Montaigut en Combraille in the Puy de Dme with the 2000E and the red Cortina estate (the same one as in the photograph), waiting for my imminent retirement to my farm in France when I'm going to make a start on it.
