This is not a car, it's a way of life, so says one of the stickers on the back. I had two of them during the 1980s, the first was yellow and the second red. They were fun, but then my sons grew too large to fit in the back so I had to get something more sensible.
Citroen decided to stop making them in 1990, sadly. Since then, in France, all you could see were increasingly elderly looking examples. Until recently that is. Recently I've noticed increasingly well cared-for and shiny examples. They are becoming collectors' items or so it seems. I wish (almost) I'd kept mine. I did enjoy the waves and smiles from other 2CV owners (mostly young men and mostly with beards).
