Citroen ( the founder Andrť-Gustave CitroŽn) disapproved of the German occupation of France during WWII and did his best to make things difficult for the Germans by producing ordered trucks for them with extreme slowness. In addition to the slow production he sabotaged these vehicles by placing the notch on the oil stick in the wrong place causing the engines seize up from lack of oil. The Gestapo soon figured it out and put him on their black list.
