Vintage Car "Dolly"

Used Yellow Citroen 2CV Dolly in the streets of Palermo, Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires has a lot of old vintage cars driving around on the roads. This rare example of a Citroen 2CV is not in a show-ready condition, still it looks adorable. Does it not? I wonder who owns this classic car.

Ah, the 2CV, such an icon. Do you think the Smart Car will reach the same legendary status as this and the Fiat Bambino? I think it will!

A great shot - is it a co-incidence that it has been posted on the "Yellow" theme day?

It is not quite "adorable" in my eyes. But it is certainly interesting and would be a challenge to someone who wanted to restore it...

It appears to be losing its color, too, so if you did post this for yellow theme day, you lucked out. It may be all gray tomorrow.

Lovely old classic. We've a few of these here in Seattle, too.

I think there is some magic elegance going on with natural
decay of things and I really adore these signs.

I love it! I found one and snapped a photo in Tunisia last Summer.

I guess from the number of bumps at the front of the car it is owned by 20 teenagers and one old lady !
