They are certainly an aquired taste, however so much fun to drive and not at all to be taken seriously. Most of our cars are too serious!
I love the Activa but I only really start enjoying it when on winding roads at speed, serious speed. In a 2cv its fun always! Well, avoid the motorways then its fun

Well, as of this morning our 2cv search is over
Excellent news Chris
We're all itching to know the details...
Well ok then ....
Its a 1983 A-reg 2cv special edition 'Beachcomber' - so obviously its white with blue strpied exterior, roof and seat fabrics. The Beachcomber is fairly rare to find now.
Its been owned by the same lady for over ten years, she had it restored by 2cv City and another well known but more local 2cv specialist nearer to her buying it. Its got the must have galvanised chassis too. The owner also has another 2cv at her house in Spain and has run them here for over 20 years, its a well looked after and well loved car.
It is in excellent condition, which makes a change from the horrible ones ive seen recently. It was obvious that for £2000, our original 2cv budget, only just passable ones are available. Some better than others I suspect but the few ive seen for that money were rough. So this one was a bit more than that, in fact I could have bought my Activa over ten times .... but good 2cvs are getting to be worth serious money now. We were originally thikning of getting one as a project to tidy up but the ones we looked at didn't appeal.
It has long tax and test, needs nothing doing and drives superbly. Im really looking forward to getting it and have already started buying things to slightly personalise it.
Im just about to go out and find a 2cv shaped hole in the garage for it to fit into. We should be collecting it towards the end of the week, so expect a few pictures at the weekend ... I have one somewhere which ill post up soon.
I know its not a popular French car on here, but its something we have been looking to get for ages now. Our plan is to keep it a couple of years, enjoy it, take it to some events, 2cv rallies etc and then probably move it on.
This isn't it, but its virtually identical
