|2CVs are go!|
I like to give the characters in my stories interesting cars to drive, so the superannuated crime-fighters of the Blue Rinse Brigade chase villains in an equally aged and rickety maroon and cream Citroen 2CV.
The same car, with a pink and yellow paint job, shows up in Polka Dot Dreams.
"Do we have to wind it up before we get in?" wonders vintage-clad heroine Natty Smalls?
"No, you just have to put your feet through the floor and run," says boyfriend Matt.
There's something inherently clown-car-like about a 2CV. So it was amusing to find the plucky little French favourites feature in this year's only 24-hour endurance race, in a contest organised by the Classic 2CV Racing Club at the twisty-turny Anglesey Circuit in Wales on August 30 - 31.
