H van, Parte Deux

Last year we published a post that featured, within SL, a Citroen H van. Disappointingly, I didn’t get my own photo taken beside it at the time and the location no longer exists in SL (I just checked).

I love these vans, because there’s some quintessentially French about them (hardly surprising as Citroen made them). Citroen’s DS car (below) is another iconic model, as is…



…the 2CV (2 cv stands for ‘deux chevaux’, two horse (power) 🙂 )



I love the 2CV, and my fondness for it is in part due to this car being the first car I ever owned. It was a wreck, cost £100, and never let me down over a three year period.

Incidentally, the French do paint cars in colours other than green, the similar colours above are coincidental.

So why a post about French cars? The photo below explains all. It’s not just me who likes the juxtaposition of nude model and French chic.



I think my next task in SL is to locate one of these vans and see if I can finally get photographed beside such a unique piece of automotive engineering.
