|May 1998. The French 2cv-clubs organised a big meet near Paris to celebrate 50-years "Deux-Chevaux". With a big parade on the Champs Elysees as one of the highlights of the event.|
|To stand out of the foreigner-crowd, this eyecatcher was mounted on top of my 2cv.|
|Because we thought it was safer to travel in numbers, we
teamed up with the "einetters" from Holland. Unfortunately at the first
tankstop, we lost track of them.
At a certain moment we followed another (blue) Belgian 2cv at high speed (+120 km/h ;). Tom was right behind us in his DS. Quite a sight, 3 2cv's chasing eachother on the highway and a DS anxiously trying to pass. Great fun!
|Noush from America was the proud driver of the second 2cv. This car has by now already left the old continent, and sold on to a young American 2cv-driver.|
|And what do you do if you get thirsty in the biggest 2cv-trafficjam ever? Drink a Joe Pailer!|
|And after 3 hours standing in line, some engines got overheating problems ...|
|Only solution for "vapor lock": Park the car in the "no-parking zone" and go for a walk on the Champs Elysees.|
|The guy with two dead engines in his Sahara, came to help us with 1 dead engine.|
|All's well that ends well!|
