une francaise perdue aux etats-unis

I spotted this Citroen car and wondered whose it is?! I think our Montpelier CDP blogger friend, Marie, took a wrong turn and ended up in the Twin Cities! Zut alors!

  6. Une 2CV, en francais, aka deudeuche. Late 40es, early 50es, I'd guess. Very well preserved! C'est une beauté!

  8. It's very rare that you see a French car in US. I've seen a few Fiats in California but no French car. Nice

  11. There's also one back in Athens, waiting inside a street for many months now to move.
    In Germany people would call this car as well "Ente" - "duck".
    A wonderful Tuesday for you.

  12. What's really strange is seeing a Minnesota license plate on it.

    Well, maybe not, what with all the strange people up there in the north country! I won't name any names, though.

  13. I had one of these in Paris in the mid-seventies...it dated from 20years before....and finally gave up the ghost in front of the Eiffel Tower.

  16. Very funny, Leif, and thank you for mentioning me. I have just found your comment on my blog. I work so much that I avoid visiting my own blog not to spend too much time far from my ladder (I want to get rid of my work as soon as I can, which could be in a week or two). I am sorry for not seeing your comment sooner. I will be more "vigilant" now.

  20. Gosh I love those cars. Around here there are still plenty of those. I think they call it "dos caballos" in Spanish refering to 2CVs
