Post Re: My 2cv
I bought a Portugese built Special in 1988, after taking delivery, before I drove it anywhere, I used over 10 litres of Waxoyle on it ....most of which went into the chassis, the rest was painted onto the underneath, wheelarches and injected into any cavity I could find.
It needed the chassis welding for its MOT in 1995 ....so it was fitted with an early non-galvo'ed SLC chassis, which is still good.
It needed new rear seatbelt mounts in 2012, so I had complete new inner rear wings put in {these are still good}
And aside from those two jobs, my car is virtually rust free.

About a week after the 2CV passed its MOT on the 2nd September I put it back into storage in west Herefordshire, about 32 miles from where I live, because I only have space in the garage for one car. I've had my 1932 Morris Minor here at home during the last 3 months but today I pootled over to Leominster and returned with the 2CV which required only a minute of cranking to get it to fire and run. It performed brilliantly all the way home, keeping up with a 2016 Land Rover Discovery with ease. I've missed the ol' girl.

Aw I'd hate to have a car so far away. Great you have storage available though.
