The Ultimate Car Collection #34; 1966 Citroen 2CV

 

One of the cars on the website where I actually owned the 1:1 version. I had it from about 1983 through to 1986 when my wife passed her test and demanded something a bit more normal. I had the 2CV6 Club, which had the cloth seats, the square lights (Dollys had round ones) and a fold-back rather than roll back front on the roof. Sort of a posher version, mine was pale jade green with matching striped seats.

We went on honeymoon to France in it, I commuted from Chester to Gravesend weekly in it, and after using it hard for three years I sold it for 100 more than I paid for it. Never mind the hole in the floor where my foot had gone through and the detached boot lid.

I have to say that the 2CV was a genuine classic. It was a brilliant design which worked very well. It was comfortable & roomy if a little slow and noisy, great fun to drive and ultra cheap to run, it was also surprisingly good off-road.
