Not trains,but a little bit continental perhaps.

Nice! According to the hood and grill it looks like it's not one of the latest models 2CV but a more earlier one. Somewhere from the sixties?
I hope you give it a good new live!

It's been it storage so long, the steering wheel changed sides!

BTW, I think I recognize that blue Honda.

I'm following your progress on the 2CV on Youtube. The last video with the sides off for new sills was not for the faint hearted...
How did the MOT go?

Today I'm gonna pick up our 'new member' of the family; a 1974 2CV4 (yes, the 425 cc version, we only have flat landscapes over here...). Chassis was replaced in the late nineties and still  good, motor replaced one year ago.
The sell even included a can of the original orange paint...

The C plate is the giveaway, mid 1980s car.

Anyhow, I love a Duck with a ripple hood. Very nice touch, and love the color. A lot of respect as someone that has brought more than one Citroen back from the dead.

Watching the teenagers in working in it quietly, especially the young lady having trouble with the windows reminded me of of a scene from the Tati film "trafic".

While I have moved on from 2CVs, GSs, Ds, CXs, et al...we do have something in common, we both have blue Honda Jazz/Fits!Very Happy

Paulus, I came close to buying a nice 425cc car back in 1993, but the guy that was willing to sell when drunk at a carshow was not so when sober when showed up at his house that Sunday.
