Honestly I'm not sure if Citroen's are street legal in the US, if they were it would probably be a decent cost after the transportation, plates, registration, etc

The French, being French, and unlike the British, Swedes, Germans, or Italians, have no interest in selling their cars in the USA. This is why we don't see Peugeot, Renault, Citroen, etc, here. Current USA laws permit importation of a car 25+ years old. Parts for a 1969 Citroen are not as difficult to find as they are for a 1990 Buick. The Europeans tend to produce and stock parts for their cars longer than do US manufacturers. The old joke is that the French colonized northern Africa so someone would buy their cars….

"Amsterdam, Holland or Rotterdam, Germany" Both Amsterdam and Rotterdam are in the Netherlands (aka "Holland") ...

I have imported 2 Citroen models into the US. The shipping to Los Angeles from northern European port cities such as Amsterdam, Holland or Rotterdam, Germany was about $2k per car. It's slightly less to New York, Baltimore, or Atlanta. The ocean journey takes approximately 6-8 weeks. This is REAL IMPORTANT: the car MUST be 25 years or older to legally bring into the US. If not 25 years or older, the car will be impounded, sent back, or destroyed by US authorities. The Citroen models I brought over are a 1972 DS21 and a 1985 2CV. They're great cars to drive, everyone turns their heads to have a look at them. However, be warned: there are very few mechanics in the US that work on Citroen, and they're concentrated mainly on the east and west coasts. Citroens are the embodiment of French quirkiness and weirdness. They're most definitely NOT for everyone. "Vive la France!"
