10k: DS21 Got Trunk: 1968 Citroën DS21 Pallas Base 2.2L

Oh, my, god. Becky, look at this 1968 Citroen DS21.

It is on eBay. [scoff]

It looks like one of those DT guys’ rides.

But, you know, who understands those DT guys? [scoff]

They only like it, because, it was a tip from Hugh, ‘kay?

I mean, this ride, is bidding for $8800.

I can’t believe it’s just so round, it’s like, out there, I mean— gross. Look!

It’s just so… purple!

I like big Citroëns and I can not lie

You other brothers can’t deny

That when a DS drives in with an itty bitty steering wheel spokes

And a round thing in your face

Your oleopneumatic suspension gets sprung, wanna sell your truck

‘Cause you notice that seat was stuffed

Deep in the Pirellis it’s wearing

I’m hooked and I can’t stop staring

Oh baby, I wanna get a French car

And take its picture

My homeboys tried to warn me

But that clutch you got makes me so ornery

Ooh, trunk-o’-smooth-paint

You say you wanna a Benz?

Well, use me, use me

‘Cause you ain’t that average 2CV

I’ve seen them driftin’

To hell with rear-wheel-drive’

FWD is perfect, when its wet,

Got it goin’ like a turbo ‘Vette

I’m tired of magazines

Sayin’ fast cars are the thing

Take the average DT reader and ask him that

It gotta pack much in the back

So, fellas! (Yeah!) Fellas! (Yeah!)

Has your daily driver got the LHV? (Hell yeah!)

Tell ’em to change it! (Change it!) Change it! (Change it!)

Change it to LHM!

LHV is hydroscopic!

(US face with Euro booty)

Seal Beam Headlights!

(US face with Euro booty)

(US face with Euro booty)

I like ’em round, and big

And when I’m throwin’ a gear

I just can’t help myself, I’m actin’ like an animal

Now here’s my scandal

I wanna get you home

And ugh, double-wishbone, ugh, ugh

I ain’t talkin’ bout Saturn

‘Cause plastic parts are made for toys

I want ’em real thick and metal

So find that juicy double

DT’s E-i-C in trouble

Beggin’ for a piece of that windshield bubble

So I’m lookin’ at Jalopnik videos

Knock-knee’d Miatas drivin’ like bros

You can have them apexes

I’ll keep my cars like Flo Jo

A word to the thick DeeEss pillars, I wanna get some

I won’t cuss or hit ya

But I gotta be straight when I say I wanna cruise

Till the break of dawn

Baby got it goin’ on

A lot of simps won’t like this song

‘Cause them punks like to hit it and run

And I’d rather drive all day

‘Cause your tires are long and strong

And I’m down to get the clutches friction on

So, IDs! (Yeah!) IDs! (Yeah)

If you wanna roll in my Mercedes (Yeah!)

Then turn around! Shift in reverse!

Even E30 boys got to shout

DS 21 got trunk!

DS 21 got trunk!!

Yeah, baby… when it comes to Mazdas, Cosmo ain’t got nothin’ to do with my selection.

M3-4-5? Ha ha, only if its got a 2-stroke swap.

So your girlfriend rolls a Yugo, playin’ workout tapes by Fonda

But Fonda ain’t got a snowmobile motor in the back of her Yugo

My custom Honda don’t want none

Unless you’ve got shifter on the tree, see

You can build side bars or bush guards,

But please don’t lose that i-4,

Some brothers wanna play that “hard” role

And tell you that the DS ain’t gold

So they toss it and leave it

And I pull up quick to retrieve it

So next to a Mazda Cosmo you’re fat

Well I ain’t down with that!

‘Cause your engine is small and in the curves yer kickin’

And I’m thinkin’ bout getting oppo by flickin’

To the bone head dudes in the magazines:

You ain’t it, VW Thing!

Give me a Citroen, I can’t resist ’em

Red cars and ricers ain’t the thing

Some knucklehead tried to diss

‘Cause his cars are on my list

He had game but he chose to hit ’em

And I pull up quick to get wit ’em

So fellows, if the suspension is on the ground,

And you want a French car throw down,

Email tips@dailyturismo.com

And kick them nasty thoughts

DS 21 got trunk!

DS 21 got trunk!

Little in the middle but DS got much trunk

Little in the middle but DS got much trunk

Little in the middle but DS got much trunk

Little in the middle but DS got much trunk

Edit: updated year from ’61 to ’68…where’d I get the ’61 from?  Thx Bobinott for pointing that out.
