    No mention of the actual driving though, the ride comfort that would beat just about any modern car, the fact that it can carry 4 adults in comfort. Could have been better.

    I put it down to a lack of ploughed fields in the vacinity of the test drive. Plus the journo probably ate the eggs for breakfast,

    I've never driven anything that would come remotely close to beating one over a speed bump

    It is hard to sell a deux chevaux in France at the moment. People are scared they may be contaminated with beef.

    LOL

    The coverage of the "scandal" here has been of tabloid proportion.
    Lots of heat with little light.

    I reckon that the output of a 2cv has very little meat at all. No doubt Strasburg will have little to offer either!

    Default Kerbside Classic 1969 2CV

    Moving on from the cars morality of being honest or not, this is probably the best article on a 2CV:

    If you can find it on line, the original Autocar test of the Dyane in the late 1960s is also a really good read. I suppose I'd better find mine and scan it.... Must be out of copyright by now.
