Bling wasn't a word in the seventies - but if it was! What a piece of kitsch, I love it. I remember the Citroen SM being launched as a new model - the Citroen-Maserati-  the motoring press loved it too.

I saw one the other day on the A40 going through Northolt on the way into London and it was stunning. I'm amazed that there are any real ones left though, I've owned two Citroens (2cv & XM) and they drop to bits - merging with an Italian maker must have doubled the problem, but isn't it beautiful?

There's new features here too in the finest Corgi tradition. All through the sixties they surprised us with new tricks - this must be the swansong, the last of the true Corgis, we get bright work door-tops as a separate piece and a lift-up parcel shelf - although I think we had that on the Renault 16, however that number plate behind a Perspex cover is a gem - and it's a PARIS registration too - trťs chic.
