Rudy Heilig has spent his life around Citroens. His father, Hank Heilig, owned a Citroen dealership in Vancouver, Canada in the 1970's. In his early teens, prior to even having a driver's license, Rudy could frequently be found in the dealership's garage tinkering with a Citroen D-model. Rudy followed his father's livelihood -- first becoming a mechanic at his father's garage before eventually forming Citroen Concours of America in San Diego, California USA -- a company devoted to all aspects of the Citroen automobile. He also started publishing 'CITROEN' - a technical/informational newsletter in the early 1990's and continues to be it's chief contributor, editor and publisher to this day.

Citroen Quarterly, May 2008 
A nice concise guide to evaluating a DS for purchase. Would certainly be of use to a neophyte or even a budding amateur in evaluating the purchase of a DS. The main areas of concern are covered and are well illustrated. The most daunting areas of the DS are the items that are fairly unique to the first time buyer, the hydraulics and the unibody construction and this is no doubt where the book would be the most helpful. The servicing and parts cost guide would also help with evaluating whether that tatty DS that you are looking at would be worth restoring.

Considering the time and investment that would be put into the purchase of a D-series car $19.95 seems like a small price to pay for a bit of knowledge.

New Zealand Classic Car, September 2008 
This series of small, softback guides offers helpful advice for those looking to buy any of the classic cars featured. The Fiat 500 and 600 guide includes information on the saloons, Multipla and Giardiniera, while the Citroen guide covers all DS and ID models. Packed with buying tips, areas to look out for and restoration information, the books with Veloce's Buyer's Guide series make a great first step in the purchase of a classic car.

Octane, April 2008
Even if you only get one useful piece of info from this small softback, it will have justified the modest price, but in fact there's loads of invaluable advice here – we reckon much more than in previous Essential Buyer's Guides – along with copious color pictures. Good value.
