Citroen DS or also know as Citroen “Shark” is my big aim.
Yes. One of my biggest dreams is to purchase that car.
Not for myself, but for my father who is in love with Citroen DS.
Once, long time ago, he had one. He purchased brand new “Shark” as a self-gift for one of his birthdays. I think it was 21st.
That time Citroen DS was awesome care to drive. Attraction. Special the part when you push the button and the “ass” of the car “lay-low”.
He had that car for couple years and later, like that was normal at that time, else he went for newer cars and other brands.
After that, in ’92. when war started in Yugoslavia, we lost everything, like most of the people in Bosnia.
For year later, we came back to our city and everything was destroyed.
We had no chance to think about every day normal things, special not about to have a car.
We had no money, no place to stay because our house was fully damaged and had to start from the beginning. From “0”.
Father got a job, somehow we started building our new house and little by little we got a chance to purchase a car. And may years later, we got another, and then another car, but all of that cars were some “regular” cars. Not really regular, because all of the were sport versions of particular model, but normal cars.
And somehow my dad got nostalgic. He did not miss so many things which he lost when the war started.
He is the person who believes that everything happens with good reason. So he accepted that we lost everything because God wanted so. Ad he “put” the same in our heads. So we also believe in that.
But one think he is really nostalgic about is his “Shark”…That old Citroen DS.
Like many others, who could no the value of that car back in the days. Who could imagine that even now, many,many years later that car would still be “a real deal” attraction.
And the price is amazing. Even so old, the car is very expensive. And is not overpriced, because it has got “that something”
And I really wish one day soon I can earn enough to purchase “Shark” and to surprise my father with it.
I think, if that’s happen, he would be the happiest man in the world. It would be like “nothing else matters”
One day,,,hopefully soon “InshAllah” (If God Wills)
