Deux Chevaux – the Citro√ęn 2CV

Posted in Fun, Project with tags , , , , , , on May 26, 2011 by FullLockAndTwoSmokingTyres

Such a simple car I can quite honestly admit that I thought the 2CV was just one car with no variations and little interest to me until I decided to take a dig about to see what was out there ad boy did I like what i found. I was completely shocked to find a convertible coupe that’s for sure and definitely didn’t expect it to look good!!!

The humble French farmers car rumoured to have been designed to “traverse the ploughed fields without breaking a tray of eggs held by the farmer’s wife” now I’m sure a lot of car designers would love such a simple design brief like that now a days LOL.

I believe this could be my next project if eBay can turn up a cheap decent example, I really feel it perfectly suites the ratrod/hotrod kind of look and have found some superb examples and renderings for your viewing pleasures and my ideas box alike.

I’m off to buy myself some eggs and looking for a plowed field to test them on ūüôā

The Limo!!!

When I think of a Limo it’s either full of School leavers or a Hen Doo, window down with some¬†in¬†comprehensible, almost Tourette’s like screech bellowing out or half a body¬†holding a bottle of cheap sparkling wine “Woowing” like some overgrown child pretending to be a steam train rolling into station.

Out of the blue i stumble across this SuperBus on the Daily Mail¬†website and it made me rethink my whole idea on the Limo? Maybe there is a Limo out there that would change my view and convince me that they have their place and boy oh boy did I find some different Limo’s all with different appeal.

Next special event I have to make an entrance at I’ll definitely be ¬†looking to see if I can’t hire one of these Unique creations
