citroen 2cv on spring and broadway
the citroen 2cv (or “deux chevaux”) is my favorite car of all time, although i’ve never had the privilege of driving one. just looking at it is enough to make you smile. and, appropriately enough, i saw one last night in manhattan after a great cassoulet at jardin bistro.
and, though i did not know this until i googled for the link above, billy joel drove a deux chevaux in that famous crash into the side of a long island house.
great design and celebrity cachet. what else could you want in a car?
