Citroën 2CV

One of our favorite things about spending time in Argentina is the chance to see cars that are rarely or never seen in the U.S. There are many small models that have never been introduced to North America like the Ford Ka and Chevrolet Meriva. Then there is the Ford Falcon (a family favorite) that lasted briefly in the U.S., but was wildly successful in Argentina (and in Australia). Finally, there are several European brands that found little success or never entered the market up north, but are some of the most common in the Southern Cone: Citroën, Renault, Peugeot, Fiat, Seat, and Lada (in Chile). That means there are many new cars (such as the Renault Mégane) and old cars (like the Fiat 600) that we are unfamiliar with and that make an ordinary trip to the supermarket an adventure for even an adult's less-curious eyes. So, here is a car Enzo drew inspired by an old Citroën 2CV.
