Are you new to the 2CV?
If you are new to the 2CV then you could be about to
discover something very special. Arguably, no other car in
motoring history has ever achieved higher levels of
enthusiasm and sheer passion from its owners. The fact
that this was achieved by one of the cheapest cars on the
market makes it even more remarkable.
2CV owners always feel that they have somehow beaten the
system, and seem to have a permanent smile on their faces
when driving their pride and joy - which invariably has a
name and is just one of the family!
Yes, the 2CV is more like a pet, a living creature, than
it is a heap of metal - or as a major motoring magazine said

could never die, and it was inevitable that a number of
independent specialists would set up and provide owners with
a level of enthusiasm and service that Citroen themselves
seemed to have lost.
The very nature of the 2CV's construction and the
extensive supply of parts saved the day. Short of crushing
it, there is not an awful lot that can happen to a 2CV that
renders it beyond repair. 2CV's can be restored or
completely rebuilt, and whilst this does involve significant
costs, it is still possible to treat yourself to a
completely rebuilt 2CV for the same money as it would cost
to buy a modest new modern "box". "Smiles per Pound"
there is still nothing that can come close to this wonderful
