You mean to tell me, I too could have had headlights like this? I wish I hadn't sold the car now. My sons might even have been prepared to let me drive them all the way to school.
You were lucky to have found a buyer for that car. :)No, you couldn't have had that many headlights without a much tougher battery than you probably had. Wait. The alternator was hand-cranked. The crank was down by the foot pedals. And I don't mean brake and clutch pedals. :)
That looks like a Welsh beach to me. Is that the one they used to use for speed cars in the 20's I wonder?
You have no idea how tough my battery can be, Max.
@Adullamite - only you remember the 20s. I was too shocked to see they were allowed to desecrate a beach with cars to guess the location.
I never owned a 2CV, but I've driven a few, and laughed a lot whilst doing so. The correct technique, according to my Belgian friend, Gerard, is to slam the go pedal to the floor and never ease-up on the right foot. When faced with rough roads, ploughed fields, snow, floods etc.... Just keep that foot down. Hear that tiny engine scream.However, I did have a Renault 4, and a Renault 6, both of them a bit bigger, and a bit tougher than the tin snail, but otherwise similar in craziness and nutty suspension and gearchange.Great cars to own and drive, and like a magic carpet over rough roads.Adullamite? Pendine Sands?
Soub, Somewhere in the west country or Wales they had such sand.
You must be at least minimally sober to comment!
