2CV

Found this rusty old 2CV through a hole in a fence, off a wee alleyway in the west end last summer...

Looks rather sad to me. :(

They never stop slagging off French cars (you ready for the backlash Crusty?) on Top Gear, bit of a cheek giving England doesnt really make any themselfs...

Didnt they do that at Prestwick?

I used to love Top Gear but its now less about an honest appraisal of cars and their various merits and more about schoolboy pranks that get Clarkson, Hammond and May face time. Saying that, I think James May should have his own show; something scientific or historic.

You see their daft dog, called Top Gear. What is they changed the reasonably priced car to again?

My personal favourite was the one where they thought they had beat Clarkson. It was the one where James May was flying and he had to land because he only had a daytime VFR licence and Hammond absolutely fucking ripped him to shreds for it.

They have slagged off Rovers for being sh*t all the same... I think I recall them saying we should all buy Nissans or something as at least they are produced somewhere iclose to home.

I do love Top Gear tho, they do such wildy daft things that are a wonderful abuse of the licence fee! (can Nuns drive monster trucks?)
