    Default Couldn't resist

    When I saw this piccy on the International Friends of the 2CV forum I just couldn't resist sharing it.

    I'd love to see a photo taken a second later!

    Cheers, Pottsy

    Lovely! Using my Widows Phone measuring device I find that the R4 is about 15.7 degrees and the 2CV about 21 degrees to the horizontal. Yes, I'd like to see the next picture in sequence too!

    There's something extremely elastic about that 2CV. It's RH front wheel appears to be about 90 degrees to the direction of travel. The R4 front RH wheel on the other hand appears to be pointing in the correct direction, The reason the R4 is in front is that the 2CV has far too much toe-out.

    I note that they appear to be on a public road, i would have thought the inside wheel would have tucked in with the radius of the tie rod movement, but not that much ,as both cars dont have limited slip there not going to slay up there for long, pugs

    Nah! The 2CV is about to lap the R4 for the third time. . .

    Hmm. Maybe it's JBN trying to beat the other guy to the last Viagra pill at the chemist's.

    But I too think there's something wrong with the Ackerman on the 2CV.

    In the movie red dogs 2 a 2cv got squashed between two buildings, as my 9 year old mate said and his quote "leave metal rubbish bins at home" and use the recycle bin its plastic and bendable and re useable and my DS3 is gay, guess who is walking to School next term.

    How do you know your DS3 is gay? Is it chasing other DS3's like the 2CV was chasing the R4?

    That 2CV is really checking out the 4CV's bum. Mardi Gras parade going about business as usual?

    In the spirit of fair play.

    Same source as the others, in fact, the same thread.

    I never realised there was a political undercurrent between these cars!

    PS. If the previous one was entitled: "And the winner is...." as fivedoor suggests, then this one could be "Revenge is sweet!" ?

    PPS: I'm tempted to print and frame all three as a triptych! Beats the hell out McCubbins "The Pioneer"!

    Well, this was kinda of a forgone conclusion. The Renault has more CV than the Cit.
