Post Famous Owners of 2CVs
With the passing of The Stones drummer, Charlie Watts, I've heard he was a collector of cars and had a 2CV in his garage. There's also Chris 'Monkey' Harris of Top Gear fame, and another motoring journalist, Andrew Frankel, who has been the Editor of Motor Sport magazine and has been a contributor to many motoring publications over the years, including Autocar. I especially enjoy his film on the Blower Bentleys he did for Motor Sport...

They're both on record as saying the 2CVs would be the last cars they'd sell.

1988 built (1989 F-registered) Citroën 2CV-Six
2013 (63-Plate) VW Golf SE 1.4TSI BMT DSG7
1932 Morris Minor 2-Seater Tourer (The £100 car).

Cool. Good taste!

I love that Chris Harris thinks so highly of his old 2cv. I have a lot of respect for him anyway because of his love for the old proper AMG cars from the 80's.
