What is it with this mental schism? I have had loads of french and italian cars over the years (currently have a Panda HP100 and an Espace (2nd one))but have had 2cvs, Renault 4s, Alfa Suds, Alfa Sprints, X19s as well as all the 205 gtis and 306 gtis and a Fiat Multipla (my favourite ever car that I did 100,000miles in,) Had a Citroen GS and a CX GTi Turbo 2 but had to sell it because it couldn’t even manage 20mpg. Was impossible to go less than 80mph, even if you were reversing down the drive. HilariousPosted 4 years ago
Never understood all the German fanboy stuff.
In the process of buying a Citroen Mehari but have not told my wife yet. As a consequence there may be a few very decent bikes on the classifieds soon.AlexSimonSubscriber
Hicksy – posted this on Vimeo, but that’s a very impressive video.
Watching the video, I was expecting the specs to be much more than they were – must all be down to driver skill!
Impressive that the rest of the car is original – especially the brakes and suspension (as he seems to out-break everyone (or was that just the intimidation of seeing a black 2CV coming up in your mirror!).
This whole thread has been great. Love these real-world classics with character. I’ve only driven a 2CV a couple of times, and it was unforgettable – not many cars I can say that about.Posted 4 years ago
Feeling the love for this!
Here’s a fixer upper Dyane. My dad had a slightly later one in the same powder blue.Posted 4 years ago
if Alan Clark approved that’s good enough a reason to own a 2CV

My mum had a Renault 4 van – happy memories boucing round in the back inbetween all the books (voluntary local mobile library…!). Great thing to learn to drive on when you are 13…Posted 4 years ago
Brother also had a Citroen DS in desperate need of doing up. It sat in a mates garage for years, while he saved money to do it up. It still started and ran, but then he emigrated to NZ and left it with a good mate on the promise it would be done up…never heard if he did or not.
