1970 Citroën DS 21 Pallas
Owner: Lars Banka
Location: North-Rhine-Westphalia, Germany
Model: DS 21 "Pallas"
One day Lars Banka's wife returned from a walk filled with excitement. She told Lars about a car she had just seen and couldn't stop talking about it. Lars went out with his wife to try to find the car, but it was gone. When they had almost returned home, they spied the car in a different spot.
The Citroën was perfect. It was the right year, model, engine, and color. Best of all, it was for sale. Neither Lars nor his wife had been looking for this particular kind of car—they didn't even know that they both loved this kind of car. It was love at first sight for the both of them. Though Lars and his wife had both already fallen in love with the car, they spent a dizzying weekend discussing pros and cons before calling the owner that Monday. Disappointingly, the owner had decided the Citroën was no longer for sale. It took Lars three weeks to get the owner to sell him the car, but upon handing over the keys, the owner made Lars note in the contract that in case he sold the car again, Lars would have to offer it to the previous owner before anyone else.
