The Citroen Mehari was briefly imported to the
United States in 1969 and 1970. Even though it was a lot more fun to drive than a Datsun pickup, it was about the same price
and was unable to compete.

In 1981 I drove a 1970 Citroen Mehari, now it is time for my dad to have a blast! Helping my dad with his Mehari is giving
me Mehari fever too!

I got out of bed one day to find it raining and blowing very hard,perfect time to hop into the Mehari with plywood
bimini top and cruise Mill Valley. As I was cruising through town I watched as the water swelled up around me.Gee,maybe I
should cruise on home. I'll never forget that put put put - put - - put - - - put - - - - put - - - - - put - - put - put
Thank You Don Rodgers
Shrew eats Mehari!
We are looking for both inner fender wells for a Citroen Mehari. It seems that a raccoon or a shrew attempted
to eat its way into the engine compartment through the vent holes in the fender wells. It ate through the wiring harness
also!. Either install your vent hoses or tape the holes shut!
Dad is now tearing it up in Clearlake with his new toy.Life is good! We bolted up a two barrel carb from Europe and off it
went! Gets around 50 mpgs now, bet it would get 70 mpg with fuel injection.
Don Rodgers (rogers?)was very helpful when I restored my first Mehari in 1980, loaning me a special tool and tons of advice.
He gave me a ride in a Mehari that he converted to electric. I was ho-hum at the time but it last a strong and lasting impression
on me. If anyone knows of his wherabouts, please foreward my gratitude!!
