Since I bought my first 2CV in 1996, I’ve used aircooled Citroens throughout the year – apart from 2002-2003 when Elly was in pieces during a restoration. When the second phase of that restoration was completed in late 2005 to January 2006, I celebrated by immediately driving her from Lincolnshire to Aberystwyth at the height of winter.
And, you can see the results for yourself. Elly the 2CV is now rotten as a very, very rotten thing indeed. So, I’ll be taking the Dyane off the road this time. I attempt to explain myself in this new video.
