    Why not? I have been in a lot of other peoples lounge rooms in my life and have witnessed so many sad arrangements of all sorts that I thought if you have got the room for a nice object why not. A plasma the size of an small soccer field I find less Charming.

    G'day Bert,

    nice one mate, beats my brother in law, he only had a motor bike and a dismantled holden red motor in his lounge room.

    cheers,
    Bob

    Yes I do and I have done so in the past. I have had this car for seventeen years and had it on club plates for the first three or so years and the motor was already on its way out. These early 2CVs are tiresome to drive in todays traffic even when they are good! So for years( I did had it up for sale some years back, but no takers and I am not selling now), It got moved around a lot around the yard, single garage, carport etc. while I was thinking to put in bigger motor and all sorts of great ideas. And I was also playing with a lot of other cars as well and still do. It will not stay in the lounge for ever but for the time being it is nice, dry and cosy where it is.

    It's a novel look. I like it. Hopefully it doesn't leak oil or coolant onto your carpet!

    Might I suggest you disconnect the battery incase she goes up in smoke one night and take your lounge room with it.
