Vox Hunt: My First Set Of Wheels

Show us your first car.

2cv

The glorious Citroen 2CV. 0 – 60 in about….3 weeks. Note the gaffa tape holding the right-hand headlight in. I took it to the garage and asked them to put  a new headlight on, but they refused on the grounds that it would double the value of the car.

  1. A 2CV was my first car too – I used to have to carry tin foil, to 'help' the spark plugs make a connection so that it would start on damp mornings – as I live in Scotland, there were a few of them…

  2. 🙂 this one insisted that I put the kettle on and doused the (mind's gone blank…bit of the engine between the carbs and the pistons…) with a kettle of hot water to take the chill off and stop the petrol condensing out before the spark got to it. I didn't mind making a cup of tea for my other half but thought it was a bit much that the car insisted on having one too!

  3. Congrats on your new ride!
    I took my first bike out for a spin today, and I made it 75 miles, and it cut out on me on the exit ramp to my house. Luckily I made it home safely, but it's so depressing that my bike isn't running right. Grrr…

  4. Cutting out is a bind, you lose your trust that the bike will always be there for you. Hope you get to the bottom of it soon 😦

  5. That's the one! Thank you 🙂
