A Bit Of Sunshine

I think this is going to be my next car. Benoit might get jealous. I better watch for road trip antics.

This little cutie is called a Citroën Méhar and it was built between the years 1968-1988. They were only sold for one year in the states. They must have been super popular in France because they are literally everywhere here. Most of them are in excellent condition, too. The original body was made of plastic, but I have seen refurbished ones with steel bodies.

I could so see myself humming around town in this thing. By the looks of it, the freeway would probably be off limits.

I was finally able to realized my dream of living in France when I moved here in 2010. I love to read,I love history and road trips. I want to be doing anything outside in the fresh air. I want to have an entire room devoted to a personal library.
