Or the guy hanging out on the Triumph TR3.  A popular move from the earliest auto racers.  

But Citroens rule.  I love all of them.  

That hanging out of the car on the Inside of the corner was a often used maneuvre before the war.

I scanned the pictures below from my book Motor Sport in the 20's:

An Aston Martin in the 1924 Shelsley Walsh hill climb

A Vauxhall 30/98 in 1925, same event, same corner

Toughie.  But I'll bite. All my guesses are wrong except the Saab, but listed is what they remind me of.  Give me any 1950's era American car though and I'll bat 100% The text gives some clues though, but I can't pick them out. Maybe the Jaguar.

#1 top row - Capri
2 - Mini
3 - Corvair
4 - Nissan 280Z
5 - Saab
6 - 1963 Ford
7 - Couldn't even venture
last three - Lancia's

First car back in 1971. Changed the color from Bright Yellow to Gold in 1973 with all the accoutrements of the day:

Car sat from 1974 to 2004. Underwent a four year concours restoration completed in 2008. Last ran at the 50th anniversary of the Mustang in North Carolina.

I like the wheel choices before and after.
My all time favorites have to be the Crager SS,
and Keystone Classic, in that order, depends
on the car. Those old chrome reverse wheels
looked good too. At least I'm not so old, that
I thought moon wheel covers looked cool. Rolling Eyes

No not at all, the closest you can get is the Maserati. Citroën owned Maserati from 1967 till 1975. The Ghibli was made during this period.

Hegemony? More like Blasphemy. We now have an electric Mustang, and heaven forbid, rumblings of an SUV Mustang. Rock bottom for Ford. Porsche went the same SUV route, but it saved the company.
