Ps…one of my Army buddies commented that the "C" was not a "get-away" car for a bank robbery!
Several of the upper Citroen models had hydro-pneumatic springs rather than steel and very long travel suspension linkages (A arms) along with low spring rates. This allowed the cars to do several things:
  • Variable Ride Height - Low for highway speeds, and high for rough roads that were common in post WWII Europe.
  • Smooth Ride on rough roads - the long travel suspension with the low spring rates did not transfer nearly as many of the bumps to the vehicle and passengers.
  • Poor cornering and evasive maneuvering capabilities.
  • Delay in the pump-up cycle upon starting the car, as you mention. Also, the power to weight ratio of the Citroens was low, so that limited the car's potential as a get-away vehicle, too!

The ID19, DS19 and DS21 models all had pneumatic suspension. That means that they have one large 'accumulator' in the engine compartment with plumbing to all four wheels.

One we haven't mentioned is the SM model. Spaceship looks, incredible interior, and a Maserati engine and drive. This model answered the question of power with its V6 motor. It also rides like it is on rails quite literally. This one I have driven on a few occasions as my wife's cousin once owned one. Some very hi-tech features, such as headlights that turned as the steering wheel did (pointed at where you were going), and variable assist power steering, whose effect reduced as speed increased.

An incredible car, but we're waay off-topic. Can't wait to see if Patrick moves into that AS!

Airstreams are getting a big boost on television shows and commercials these days. In a short conversation with Airstream Inc, they are not always contacted for 'permission', but of course we all like to see our aluminum front & center!

Vintage Airstream?

It will be interesting to see if he actually does end up with an Airstream. What a mystery! paula

I was just looking at hints regarding future episodes and it appears that the title of episode 14 of season 6 will be "Grey Water." I'm wondering if this title alludes to Patrick's acquisition of an Airstream abode.

OK folks, Patrick's Airstream is a classic 270 Motor Home. It looks to be in excellent condition. Nothing unusual, just in really good condition as far as I can see!

Very nice motorhome, I was in it before it was sold to Warner Bros. The former owners are friends of mine.

Yes, there are photos of it in the Portal page right now, of the first episode he used it it. That's the episode of this week.

It looks perfectly original, but in really fine shape. I am jealous!

It seems to fit his persona very well...looking forward to see how often it appears. The character development in this show along with Sons of Anarchy is second to none, maybe they will spin off a hybrid show about sinister folks touring around America in their Airstreams creating havoc wherever they go...oh wait, don't want a Reality show set in a Caravan.

With the knowledge base here could somebody answer if it is true that the old Citroen could ride on three wheels in case of a flat, using the pneumatic system to lift wheel if it had a flat.

He used the couch in the AS for a nap while waiting for partner, much more comfortable than a nap on a police cruiser seat.

Prices should skyrocket for a featured antique. lol

Why would someone ask the Company for permission to photograph someone else's AS? To use the Airstream name, yes, of course, but to use a photograph of someone's trailer, I can't understand that. Seems like AS would pay to get their trailers in movies or commercials.

I saw a commercial last night for the season premiere, I believe......and there was an Airstream trailer in it.

I didn't quite catch it, but Lisbon may have gotten it for Patrick Jane.

Looked like it was set up in a wooded area, had a blue stripe and a blue and white awning.

Don't know nothin' about them trailers, but someone here will know what it is.

It's a Motor home. It has been on several previous episodes. Really neat.
