My brother in laws brother worked for a Citroen dealer back when the 2CV was at it's most fashionable,and all the dealers in this area were invited to a competition to try and see if they could turn one over by driving it on an airfield.The prize was a new 2CV,so there wasn't much to aim for(),but although the 2CV used to roll alarmingly around corners,no matter what any of them did,how fast they and how tight a corner they tried to turn,the bl0ody things stayed shiny side up.

I remember trying to move one out of the workshop when I was an apprentice.....I never,ever got the hang of the stupid gear lever.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
