All About Our Passion For 2cv's
You might get the impression by reading our web site that I am passionate about the 2cv…
Here is a very brief history of my life with the Citroen 2cv.
Back in 1990 myself and my girlfriend Lisa (now Wife) decided to sell the 2 cars we had and put the money into buying one car, we ended up with a 2cv.
We had the red 2cv (Brian) for a number of years driving it all over Europe, even taking it on our honeymoon.
In 1993 we brought a Dyane for £50.00 (Ermintrude) to put back on the road and had it for a number of years.
In 1995 we decided to buy a modern car and sell Brian the 2cv. We had the modern car for 3 months and sold it as we missed Brian so we brought a 2cv Van.
We had so many good times in the van but decided to sell it in 2001 however we weren’t without a 2cv for long as we then went on to have a number of 2cv’s:
- Blue Special
- Blue and Cream Dolly
- Cocorico (smokey jo)
- Beachcomber (Which we rebuilt)
- Green and White Dolly (winny, our current 2cv)
We also built a 2cv race car. To do the 2cv 24 hour race. the 2cv did the race a number of times. I also MOT my race car so I could drive it on the road.
For a number of years, Lisa was hankering after a Dyane, so in 2018 we brought a Dyane cote D’Azure (Ermintrude 2)
We also have a Citroen H van fitted out as a camper van, the van is a bit different as I have fitted a 4.2 rover V8 engine and a 5 speed gearbox.
I have 2 sons, Jacob (the oldest) brought a red 2cv back in 2016 when he was 14 and over the last 2 years myself and Jacob have restored it and it is back on the road waiting for Jacob to pass his driving test next year.
