I managed to bag myself a 1982 Citroen CX Safari, been off the road for 7 years but the MOT history tells a story of a well looked after car. I'll be sure to post some pics when it arrives on Tuesday. I have no idea what I'll do with it, I pretty much only bought it because I knew I wouldn't find another any time soon.
More please!

There was a girl in our year that got picked up by her mum in one of these, they had a large family and I presume back in the day 'MPV's' didn't really exist.

Yes pre the first MPV ( the Espace) the only other large 7 seater for big families was the 404/405 estate with an extra row of seats.
Im not sure what percentage of the French are Catholics, but they seemed popular over there back in the day

There was a Montego 7 seater, but not until 88 I think.

I have fond memories of riding in the back of a Renault 21 Savanna.

I think the Volvo was a rear facing folding seat that pulled up from the boot floor. Only really suited for small children.

Good advert and sounds sound.

But in all of that he didn't even say what a T4 S is ? I assume it's a bit of a sportier model ?

He makes S sound like it's something desirable, but I'[m fairly sure it's just the boggo below SE spec. Keeps the weight down for touring car fantasies though and heated cloth seats are a rare treat.

404 Familiar and Citroen DS Safari had 7 seats.

There were also many American estate cars that seated 7 and probably more, such was their width and lack of seatbelts.

It may not be happening, the car is a non runner so the suspension can't raise so I'm struggling to find a recovery driver willing/able to load it without charging me a laughable price.

The LWB Land Rover could seat 12.

I had the same system in an E-class Merc - very useful.

Indeed, that car is not great VFM unless you can get it for a grand. Even then, with the mileage, there are better options (Focus mk2 with the same engine for example)

This is has a different engine to the Focus MK2 ST. This only has four cylinders..........But a five pot turbocharged lump in one of these would be quite torquesteertastic!

Had one of these as a teenager, and absolutely loved it.

There is one on Ebay I keep looking at. I feel it is a bit over priced, but do wonder what would buy it...

I particularly like how he keeps referring to the engine capacity as "2.0 CC".
