    I've long had an admiration for "more with less" automobiles, and the deux chevaux​ certainly fits that category.

    Until looking it up for this post, I was not aware the 2CV was manufactured for over 40 years, putting it squarely on par with the Ford Model T and the Volkswagen Beetle.

    I know little of Norev apart from the usual collector mythos, Norev being the reverse spelling of Mr Veron, whose brother started Majorette. Both companies are now in other hands, but there is no denying the focus on French automobiles - which is something I enjoy as otherwise few French models would make it into the mainstream makers. I don't have many Norev models but consider myself fortunate to have acquired a few over the years. Recent issues seem on a similar level of detail and construction to contemporary Schuco, which overall is very good.

    The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

    Thank you for your understanding.

    When I lived in Germany as a soldier these were everywhere. Were they three cylinders?
    Due to the recent budget cuts,
    the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
    current state of the economy, the light at the end
    of the tunnel has been turned off.

      I can't speak from experience. The wiki says they are 2 cylinder air cooled front wheel drive.

        I see the new ones after these were the three cylinders.

            Norev models are very nice pieces to have in the collection. The deux chevaux has always been one of those funky looking cars that get my attention. Have a few of them in my collection.

                    Not surprisingly, I learned another NEW thing about MY collection just now. I never really wondered, but now I know where the brand name "NOREV" comes from! Little bits of information like that fascinate me for some reason. I may not remember "Veron"....but I do remember "Norev", and the few models I have from that company are treasures to me because of their scarcity in this country.

                    DG rules, AGAIN and forever.... Here's a reminder of what I've shown somewhere at DG in the past year or two:

ID:	515777 I believe I mentioned the Gendarmerie being the first vehicle in that livery in my collection; and, still the only one.

                      This if I recall is a Dacia. Dacia is one of those Eastern European makes that is roundly missed by other makers. I presume this is some kind of first responder vehicle though I am not certain what exactly...perhaps the equivalent of a Fire Chief?
