For Cazalea: Citroen 2CV from 1980.

In mint condition. An affordable icon. Another way to travel. A bit slow on the road, but how charming... Best, Nicolas ...  

Slow is in the mind of the driver

I know you are winding me up! We have driven over 200,000 km in my Citroens, and they are fine compared to normal driving (pre-pandemic). Now everyone in California drives like a maniac, and the speed limit of 65 mph 105 kph is the minimum! and they are t...  

Down hill certainly. ;)

Lovely car

Here is an early example from this summer, that predates the funky 60s colours and I can testify it can be relatively fast in the twisties ...  

This is my 1955 2CV, built in Slough, England

in California In England In Seattle ...  

What a beauty!

I did not know they built some in Slough!

yours is a wonderful colour !

Yes, with English gauges, RHD, Bonnet badge, Trafficators, opening rear windows and a few other changes

Photoshoot by Zoe, for a car magazine. Note the unique rear windows unlike all other 2CVs ...  

Really cool detail, the rear windows - clever

but that badge on the bonnet? pretending to be an Hispano Suiza?

I don't think so

 By: cazalea : September 12th, 2022-18:47
The only similarity is perhaps a location on the bonnet, but as the 2CV had no radiator they had to put it someplace. The Hispano-Suiza mascot is on the radiator cap and clearly resembles a stork ...  

It was a manner of speech Cazalea

The badge seems a little 'over the top' for such a communal vehicle. No offense intended at all, the 2CV is a wonderful car (I own a Mehari, its close sibling)

No problem ... I have had a Mehari too

 By: cazalea : September 12th, 2022-21:15
From about 1977 to 2013 when it finally went away and we still have this Belgian van Transplanted to the Americas in 1994 ...  

Wonderful version dear Mike!!

I love 2CV’s and this special de luxe version is gorgeous and charming!

 By: Subexplorer : September 12th, 2022-22:28
I remember riding in them and being amazed by its awesome suspension. As a curiosity they were also made in Argentina in several versions: four door, van, Mehari, etc. A very popular vehicle here in the 1960’s and 1970’s and well in the 1980’s a nice remi... 

Ha ha ha!! True!!
