    Default CitroŽn 2CV appreciation in USA

    Found this article and considering the current state of the auto market in USA at the moment (last 30yrs ) is quite ironic. They just dont get it at all.
    Ideal for fun and fuel efficiency, hills and freeways excluded.

    CitroŽn 2CV
    A radical design for its day, the CitroŽn 2CV (or "deux chevaux" -- literally French for "two horses") was launched in 1949 and intended to provide reasonably priced transport to rural French men. Built to operate under the most adverse conditions with the minimum of maintenance, the 2CV was famously fuel efficient and so became the transport of choice for the Green movement. It was discontinued in 1990.
