    Default 2CV on wharf

    Saw this 2CV on Tauranga warf in New Zealand. Ready to be transported to the lucky new owner.
    If he (or she) is interested in some photo's let me know.

    Hope it had a good sort out before heading off on its holidays; the MOT test history during the last 5 years/8,000 miles has been rather chequered.

    2012 was a particularly hard time, the MOT tester may have had to sharpen his pencil at the halfway mark...

    I don't think the Kiwi testers are as tough as this guy. He obviously doesn't like French cars.

    A common enough scenario. Pick as many faults as you can think of and then put in a ridiculously low purchase offer. Works well here in Qld, why not elsewhere.

    Unfortunately this is how the modern MOT works in the U.K.! It can sometimes be hard to get an older car through, for example my DS failed a few years ago because it had a tiny drip of LHM underneath somewhereÖit's an old CitroŽn, what do they expect??
