My Dream Car
When I was growing up in Lake Forest, Illinois, despite the proximity to Detroit, American cars were considered declasse. Our town was filled with exotic foreign cars. One of my favorites was the stunning Citroen Maserati, a Citroen with a Maserati engine. It was also made in a shorter convertible racing version. With its Art Deco yet futuristic design, aircraft grade aluminum, and stainless steel bright work, it was truly a thing of beauty. It was only manufacture from 1970 to 1975. As I continue my search for a new car that actually excites me, I am reminded of these cars of yesteryear with such style and elegance.
