Yeah, I can't really see a 2CV owner paying £25k for a bloody number plate. It used to be on a scruffy Volvo estate before it somehow got transferred onto that beachcomber. I reckon it will soon be not on a 2CV again.

The one on his C5 is "CV 2" which seems rather pointless.

I do expect the next car for 2CV to be on probably to be made by landrover and have very large alloy wheels.

Not much fun though are they? Closer than a lot of modern cars as they are actually practical at least.

I still maintain that a Berlingo is not this much fun.

Where was the last photo taken? It looks almost like Wales, but then I noticed there was blue sky in the background.

T'was Nant-y-Moch last winter. We do seem to get a fair amount of sun in winter. When it's still bloomin' cold (hence the grille muff!).

another berlingo owner - even if the wife thinks its hers I paid for it; no roll back roof but the multiple roof windows probably can leak just as well.

It does well for what she wants it to.

and why have we got it? my powers of persuasion were not enough to sell the idea of a BX estate. She was embarrassed to be seen in my 1.9dtr of some years ago; no accounting for taste.
