Claudie Avenel: "This is our family's 2CV in a suburb of Paris in 1969. My brother and father were working on it before taking it on holiday to the south of France. My father was really just there for support!"

Kevin Monk: "The 2CVs are wonderful little cars. Here are my 1967 AK350 van and my 1987 Dolly. I bought the van in France for the sole purpose of bringing back copious amounts of wine from Spain!"

Aldo Hanson: "My ex-wife liked 2CVs - so against my better 'Clarksonian' judgement, I got her one for Valentine's day in 1986. We drove more than 100,000 miles through Europe in it."
