We can't help but be a bit disappointed in what has become with the Citroën scene in Oregon. Portland in particular has a rich history of the Citroën automobile and got a substantial head start on Seattle, Portland's larger neighbor to the north. But there seem to be very few Citroëns left in Portland.
What has happened to all those cars that were sold by Northwest Light Car, European Motor Sales, Continental Motor Cars, Fitzpatrick Foreign Car Center, Economy Car Imports, Vinton and Larson, French Motor Car Sales, S.L. Motors, or Sagner's Motor Mart? This author is only aware of a small handful of surviving cars that had Oregon roots; One is Chris Middleton's 1965 DS19 Pallas, which was originally sold at Sagner's Motor Mart. This car migrated from Oregon to Washington and a half-century later, it runs great and is safely sitting in Chris's garage in North Seattle.
