    Default Ran When Parked

    Came across this pretty sad website today

    https://ranwhenparked.net/2014/12/18...e-renault-4cv/

    Pretty sure this one didn't run when it got there though ....



    anyone care to take a guess at what this poor ol Frenchy is?

    Belly up 2CV.

    I reckon it would scrub up well enough.

    Thanks, I nearly missed that, I am sure that 59Floride will have a spare drain plug, if not, he can make one in a jiffy

    The latest Preserve magazine - the newsletter of the NSW based council of motor clubs had some old pics of Americans playing polo in modified 4CV's. I'll see if I can somehow post pics here or at least a link.
