The Fiftieth Anniversary of the CitroŽn DS, October 9 2005.  CitroŽn links: US, UK, Japan

The Fiftieth Anniversary of the Citroën DS
Most probably a DS23, which were made from 1973 to 1975.  There are probably fewer that forty left in the US.  If you find one in good condition it'll be in the $12-17.5K price range, while one in excellent condition is worth $17.5-25K.
 
The Fiftieth Anniversary of the Citroën DS
With 1600 cars that day traffic some times came to a standstill and people had a chance to get out and visit with one another.
 
The Fiftieth Anniversary of the Citroën DS
A rare DS Cabriolet, one of only 1,325 made from 1960 to 1971 - and there might be fewer than 100 in North America. In such pristine condition this one would be worth from $45 to 60K.
 
The Fiftieth Anniversary of the Citroën DS
With no less than 1600 cars, for once it was a pleasure to see a traffic jam.
