I usually don't do this. But in this case I'll make an exception. I've decided to post this one although it's a car-related topic. I was so amazed after I crossed upon these pics. I just had to  post'em up !!! If you exclude the muscle cars, hot rods, lowriders, gassers, dragsters, sleds and the big rigs then I'm not a car guy :)

The Citroen 2CV  (literally ''two tax horsepoer'') was an economy car.  It was designed to move the French peasantry on from horses and carts. It is considered one of Citroën's most iconic cars. In 1953 Autocar Magazine in a technical review of the car wrote of  "the extraordinary ingenuity of this design, which is undoubtedly the most original since the Model T Ford''.  (-Wiki)
Nevermind that. Massive work needed to be done to make the car looking like it does below. The Art Deco coachbuilt style from the 20's and 30's is present for sure. To all those who said that 2CV could never be a hot rod...
(Notice the original canvaz roof top)

No more infos, tried my best :(
