That is some selection of cars there. All iconic ! That Ferrari Dino is particularly gorgeous.

You're so lucky to be able to see these, the one you said was your favourite, is that a citron? .
Looks very similar to one that used to come into the garage I worked in back in the 80s, ( only a different colour , blue/grey)well off guy but a normal Joe soap who thankfully understood that we hadn't a clue what the effin car was don't mind how to fix the thing .
CS Pallas was one of his favourite cars but when he turned up in a Lotus Citroen with collapsed suspension that took the biscuit, must have been good money in sugar back then

Just looked back at the pictures and it unfortunately seems you're favourite might have been a Dino after all, ahh well, maybe the Lotus Citroen figures in there somewhere.
Edit & edit again ,my memory is bolloxed, I'm certain he had a Citroen Pallas of the Lotus variety but now trying to find any info on a Lotus CS Pallas seems to be impossible , anyone have an idea?

That Citroen above next to the blue Ferrari is a Citroen SM - these were made in the 70's and were a joint effort with Maserati I believe (Maserati engine).
The other Citroen below that is a DS.
I haven't heard of a Lotus Citroen before. Pallas was a term that applied to various models e.g. DS, GS, CX etc.

Thanks, you're spot on, I knew it was something special and for some reason Lotus came to mind not Maserati.

I just happened upon the lot of them. I was walking around with my mouth open.. drooling!! It was embarrassing :D
That Dino was indeed my favourite.. only a few of them made I believe. Worth a bloody fortune.
Every car there was privately owned, just parked up like they were nothing...

Ray, lucky you. Stunning cars. Citroen SM is incredible. They are usually rotten by now. Rust eats them. Drove a one owner NSX in States last year. Amazing car for the time. You must have had a great trip.

Wow, what a collection.
There is a Citroen SM in a garage not far from me, lovely sound from that engine.
