Congratulations on that “New” Honda Clarity. It's design is 48 years old.
I'd like to thank Honda for giving me an excuse to talk about my new 1982 Citroen GSA. Yes, I'm the cynic, but in a strange reversal of roles, you may cynically call me out for referring to a 1982 car as “New”. Well, maybe that's true, but if so, then a 2018 Plug-In Hybrid that copies that 1982 Citroen (The Citroen GS was actually launched in 1970) isn't very new either.

Read on, and I'll leave most, but not all, cynicism aside as I explain...

Introducing CarCynic Sales
When I mention that I run a Automotive related website, people say -- "Great !-- Will you sell my car for me?", well if a service is in demand, a service should be provided.
So today, the CarCynic announces a new feature here on CarCynic.com -- CarCynic Sales.
For now, CarCynic Sales is limited to (as you may expect) very particular (and unusual) cars, and special situations -- i.e., my own cars, or speciality cars owned by people I meet or know personally.
Cars advertised on CarCynic.com will also be featured on partner websites such as Bring a Trailer.com and others in the future.
To find all cars for sale on CarCynic.com Sales, just hit this search.
There is no charge for listing a car on CarCynic Sales, but obviously, that is subject to change. Charges from partner websites may apply.
If you would like to list a car on CarCynic Sales or inquire about a car you see on CarCynic Sales, use the special (and rather obvious) email address of firstname.lastname@example.org
Look for our first listings soon. (Hint: It's a very desirable and valuable Classic Mercedes)

More Cynicism Awaits: Previous Articles 07 June 16 @ 10:04 PM
What's with the Citroën / Peugeot symbols in the Trump University logo?
Is there a connection between Donald Trump and PSA - The parent company of Citroën and Peugeot?
When stereotypical male interests and money are mixed togerther, the result is almost always an exotic car or cars. Donald Trump happens to be of the male gender and he happens to have loads of money, and yes, The Donald likes his cars.
Exactly what cars he owns was a bit hard to determine in the admittedly small amount of research I did for this article.
But bear with this ole' Cynic for a moment, and I'll get to the Trump / Citroën relationship.
