Bleu ou jaune???

Préférez-vous?


The French answer to duct tape? 


Citroën 2CV, merci Peter for this information.  I'm sure my post today will send Wayne in Vancouver over the moon!

Hi Virginia... ah, les belles doches, err, deux chevaux, which hold such a nostalgic place in many french folks hearts.... saw a nice white one the other day which was named "Dolly" ! Hello dolly ! I love the way they lean the wrong way when going around bends...

Both are very happy looking, V! And both make me smile.

Blue, Yellow? I would have to take the blue (damage and all) because I could not get the yellow out of that tight space!

Love those cars!

I can't decide Virginia, they are both very cool cars, but what I want to know is HOW is the owner of the yellow car get himself into such a tricky situation haha!

I wonder how the classic is going to get out of that parking space !

Virginia said...

HA, I have always been amazed at the Parisian parking skills. I call this the "French Kiss" when both bumpers are touching another car! My daughter says that is why most of their cars are banged up. They just keep bumping the other cars till they can get out!

I'd take yellow over blue any day of the week.

There are 2CVs here but it's always a novelty to see one on the street.

Paris Paul said...

Blue, please. And make mine a Porsche. ;-)

Fábio Martins said...

Two big cars :)
Love the colors

Alexa said...

Le bleu, s'il te plait (even with the wonky headlight).
Back in the '60s, half the people I knew drove one of these—takes me back to fun times, so thanks!

Jack said...

Does this come in black or silver, Virginia? In Connecticut, frivolity is not allowed.

Cezar and Léia said...

They are fantastic vintage cars, I think the blue is my favorite!

All french people who were 20 between 50ies and 70ies drove that car at least once in their life! I learned to drive on a blue one, 2CV are part of our national patrimony and have a place in our hearts!
