The most significant automotive news of this century seems to have slipped under the radar. A ratty, busted-to-hell Citroën completed the 24 Hours of LeMans in 2010 with complex hydraulic system and all. As the venerable Murilee Martin said, “It is impossible to overstate the magnitude of this achievement.”
Team Air Prance Schitroën essentially dug the ’72 ID out of the trash. It had been sitting for 20 years and wasn’t running until the Friday before the race. They literally revived it hours before they hit the track. And it finished without exploding into a cloud of unobtainable French parts or spraying the track with Citroën..
My neighbour drove a Citroen Sedan in the 60's and to this day it still is my favourite car. The fact that Patrick Jane from "The Mentalist" drives this car makes it even more special to me. When I saw these cars in Perth, Ontario last week I thought they deserved a blog all to themselves as they far from citrons/lemons.
Lisbon: Forgive me Jane if I can't stay for any more of your theorising, but I've got to go and see if I can save your colleagues from getting formal complaints in their files.
Lisbon: Damn it, Jane! He is in a trance, isn't he?
Jane: I describe it more as a... deep relaxation.
Patrick: She has a lover. Someone she met at around Christmas at a fair. He's either too old, too closely related, or too villainous to tell her parents about. I'd bet on villainy. And his first name starts with an H.
Lisbon: Explains why she wasn't wearing her purity ring.
Patrick Jane: Yeah, they were soul mates in their strange own way.
Travis Tennant: You play Lacrosse?
Patrick Jane: No, fast-moving sticks scare me!
Jane: (to Lisbon and Cho) Don't look at each other like that.
Lisbon: Like what? You can't see!
Jane: But I can feel. I feel your pity.
Lisbon: Tell me the truth.
Patrick: Truth? Darth Vader - Luke's father?
Patrick Jane: Men are like frakkin' toasters!
