Loved the Citroen, I used to own one and would love to again some day. I believe it's a '72 or '73 DS21 Pallas, correct?
Why do you think that particular car was chosen? Any significance?

It's a Pallas - the luxury model - but it has the early doorhandles so 1968 - 1971.

It's a U.S. model. This particular car has not had the turning headlights retrofitted (std Euro spec).

Signifigance - from Newage.com.au:
"Looking around Baker's trailer, it seems like an appropriate time to channel the Mentalist's powers of observation. On the bulletin board is a photo of a flashy 1960s sports car - Jane's ride in The Mentalist. "It's a Citroen DS 21," says Baker, eyes lighting up. "I've always coveted them myself. I just didn't see my character in a brand-new car. You may have noticed he catches rides with other people because his car is always in the shop, but I will get to drive it.""
