The 2CV Driver

lundi, octobre 6th, 2008

The Citroën 2CV is to the French like the Ford T to the Americans : an icon. It was the most successful vehicle produced after WWII and it was most famous for its unforgettable design and the legend that they would never roll. Nowadays, you still can see a few ones through the roads of France, yet in Paris they are mainly used to drive tourists in sightseeing tours. This shot was taken on the Place de la Concorde with the building in the back being the famous Hotel Crillon.
