Weren't all cars from the 1970s easily biodegradable?
Now, I'm probably going to get lynched for saying this but I think there is a definite resemblance between the Rancho and an XTR. I had forgotten about the Rancho but I'm sure there was some inspiration there for the Citroën designers.
I quite like the design of the Cactus although I haven't seen many in the "flesh" and even then they have all been moving so not had much time for a good look. I have to wonder about Citroën naming it Cactus which seems all wrong. A Cactus is, well, spiky and the car is rounded and "rubberised". I would have thought something like Armadillo would have been more appropriate.
Rancho was a nice looking car & practical load carrier so can be compared with Berlingo I suppose? It was intended to look like a poor man's Range Rover of the time. All cars from that era rusted. Some more badly than others. Loads of Cacti around in my corner of Essex. I like them but I need a bit more space.
