Citroen's Ugly Duckling, the 2CV6

It's the crudest, ugliest, thriftiest, four-wheeled production car in the world, as French as champagne and as popular too. You need a sense of humour to drive it and if the humour is latent it will drag it out of you in the first few miles. It is the Citroën 2CV6, the latest version of the remarkable Deux Cheveux, an anachronism in the world of motoring, the Gallic "peasant" car which has become...

Browsing through the Bubbles

Although we have been told that "You've never had it so good," there are still many people who haven't got it good enough to afford a new motor car. The cheapest four-wheeler costs nearly £500, while the high cost of petrol, oil, tax, insurance, garaging, servicing, and so on can knock a very large hole in the weekly pay packet.
