For CitroŽn the Axel was a disaster. Due to dreadful
production in Romania during the time of the dictator Ceausescu,
brand-new cars broke down, leaked oil, lost components, consumed way

founded by Thijs van der Zanden, who combines his passion for writing
Citrovisie publishes books which will interest the enthusiasts of the CitroŽn brand.
The formula is simple: no basic books with well-known facts and standard photographs, but books full of new information and unseen images. Besides the heap of information a Citrovisie book offers, it's also a lot of fun browsing through the chapters, since there are many images in the books many of which have never been published before.
