Pull people off the street and show them a picture of a 2CV or a DS,  
and you'd be surprised at how much recognition Citroen has.

It's arguably quite better than old Japanese cars.  Show folks  
pictures of a Mitsubishi Gallant GTO or a Toyota 2000GT and I  
guarantee they wouldn't have a clue as to what country they were made  
in, much less what company...but the Citroen designs are unmistakable  
(not always a good thing...)
