Are you new to the 2CV?
If you are new to the 2CV then you could be about to discover something very special. Arguably, no other car in motoring history has ever achieved higher levels of enthusiasm and sheer passion from its owners. The fact that this was achieved by one of the cheapest cars on the market makes it even more remarkable.
2CV owners always feel that they have somehow beaten the system, and seem to have a permanent smile on their faces when driving their pride and joy - which invariably has a name and is just one of the family!
Yes, the 2CV is more like a pet, a living creature, than it is a heap of metal - or as a major motoring magazine said in the 80's: "The 2CV is so much greater than the sum of its parts".
Add to that the fact that the 2CV is very practical, will seat 4 adults in comfort, is extremely economical to run (group 1 insurance), and has a full length sunroof for open-air summer fun, and you start ticking many boxes no small modern car dare even look at.
Starting to get the picture? - put the prejudices and ill-informed stereotypical opinions to one side and actually take a serious look at the 2CV and you will either fall in love with it, or have no heart.
Citroen ended production of the 2CV in 1990. For most of the population that was just an item on National TV News, but to those who had discovered the secret, it was a devastating blow.
Not to worry! - the legend was so powerful that the 2CV could never die, and it was inevitable that a number of independent specialists would set up and provide owners with a level of enthusiasm and service that Citroen themselves seemed to have lost.
The very nature of the 2CV's construction and the extensive supply of parts saved the day. Short of crushing it, there is not an awful lot that can happen to a 2CV that renders it beyond repair. 2CV's can be restored or completely rebuilt, and whilst this does involve significant costs, it is still possible to treat yourself to a completely rebuilt 2CV for the same money as it would cost to buy a modest new modern "box". "Smiles per Pound" there is still nothing that can come close to this wonderful French Classic.
