We can't help but be a bit disappointed in what has become with the Citroën scene in Portland, Oregon. Portland 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, S.L. Motors, or Sagner's Motor Mart? This author is only aware of one surviving car that had Oregon roots; that car is Chris Middleton's 1965 DS19 Pallas. This car migrated from Oregon to Washington and 55 years later it runs great and is safely sitting in Chris's garage in North Seattle.
