Citroen 2CV

This must be a special car because it has its own spot just by the pub Red Lion in Stodmarsh.
It is a Citroen 2CV 1982.
Gorgeous, isn't it?

Ooooo Rose, I love the paint job. I've never seen one painted two tones with curved lines. It looks very chic for a 2CV.

Gorgeous indeed! Don't see many of these in the States, and that's a pity. Beautiful paint scheme, too.

No you don't see many of these here, but Coltrane I have been seeing Smart cars, how about you?

Cali...Love the Smart cars! Saw a few in the Kansas City area about 6months ago, but with gas prices soaring, it's only a matter of time for more Smarties.

Sweet looking car! I've seen a few Citroens in my town, but not one quite as nice as this one. Cool that this car has its own parking spot at the pub!

Awww, une deuche!! I have to disagree with Kim. For me, a 2CV is too fun to wear such serious colors. They're like Mini Coopers, the little Fiats, the Twingos, the Smarts and so forth. They are little rays of sunshine on our roads. And their curves look better in happy colors.

On Bastille Day, or actually the Sunday prior, I was at a celebration, and parked outside were five of these all in a row. Each painted differently! I fell in love with them, and I adore this photo!

"Louis" wants to get a 2CV. They are difficult to find aux √ątats-Unis.

"Louis" has some old cars posted here and here.

Rose, "Louis" sincerely thanks you for your kind comments about Mme. la Vache over at PDP in the L'Occitane discussion!
