I agree about the trailer.I've built my share of trailers,before it got to the point where you can buy one for less than I can build it.I have no idea why the goose neck is so high,but what is the worse part of the design is the location of the axels.That thing must carry a lot of toung.As for the Rancho/Comeino Citroem it's kool.
You have to remember that the articulation of a fifth-wheel trailer has to clear all the body panels in turns as well as up and down transitions. Watch someone position a large camper with a pick-up. It's real easy to tear up something quickly
Wow, what a cool story. I think I know a thing or two about motorsport history...this was a 'new' story for me, (I'm knocking on 60 !) nice job Hagerty, way to educate and amuse. Screw the haters, the SM was a tour de force then and is still today. A partnership with Maserati, 0.26 drag, heck yea, Bonneville? Why not ! Bravo.
Brandon: I see only one word for those machines: "FUNKY!". I don't get to say that about anything French, in normal conversation, so this is a bit of new territory for me. Love the color, love the Citroen version of a Ranchero, very cool all around. Thank you for a great lesson in History. .
