  • I don't know how a 2CV is glorious, but I have to give this to French designers. I think France made several of the very different car designs that were actually successful. The 2CV is such example, the Citroen DS is another one. Not only were these cars different, they also had many innovations to them. All this in an industry that is more afraid of innovation than of anything else. French really have smart ideas - too bad their later cars lack in reliability

  • Top Gear, when it was great (side note: harris, rory and sabine great too) was the most watched Tv show on the planet. Not because it was about cars, but about 3 mates having a giggle. Chris - you have the knowledge, pedigree, humor - crown is yours, sir. Hint: build the show yourself, tho...

  • Chris Harris. Mensch. Also great to see Frankel. I started reading Car! when LJKS was writing, loved the Mel and Frankel years and abandoned it when the millennials with northern accents took over!

  • Doesn't seem like Chris' 2cv has been getting much use lately. Aside from maybe as a drinking shed? These are in their element in fields.

    Bruce LarsonBruce Larsonпреди 2 месеца
  • Brilliant fun. One question: Why is Frankel wearing racing overalls for the first day of hot racing action? In a 2CV, if it all goes wrong at any speed the car is realistically capable of, the driver can simply open the door, step out and run away.
