I enjoyed this story. I've never driven a 2CV and have only been driven in one once. I have to say, looking at them, I don't know if I'd like to be in one while it was having an accident. I don't know what they're Euro NCap rating must be.

What did strike me at the exhibition was how relatively little the design seemed to change in 40 years, compared with how much some models change in a short space of time.
