Happy birthday, Citroen 2CV
The Citroen 2CV, France's answer to the VW Beetle, turns 60 in Oct. This vehicle, possibly the ugliest, most under-powered piece of garbage ever foisted on the auto-buying public, has symbolized French engineering skill and expertise for since it's introduction in the late 40's.
Almost every Frenchman has owned a 2CV at some point in his/her life. Surprisingly (or not), no one else on the planet can say the same thing. Draw your own conclusions.
