What Car Did You Hate As A Kid But Now Appreciate?
When I was eight years old and living in Paris, Citroën 2CVs were all over the place. Even then in 1978, they stuck out from the crowd as a strange object from the past. They didn’t look like they belonged. At my school, the kids played a stupid game called “Green Deux Chevaux”. The rules were simple: whoever spotted a green 2CV and yelled “Green Deux Chevaux” first would earn the right to punch the other kids. As a result, I hated the 2CV, but now I find them quite charming and cute. Their antique-like aesthetics have now become their appeal for me. Plus, I really enjoyed driving our fellow Petrolista Dana’s 2CV.
What about you? What car did you dislike as a kid but have come to appreciate?
