Mondays in Iceland - #19

2CV, Reykjavík, 2004

For some odd reason, I thought that Iceland would only have a few brands of automobiles, I supposed that because it is a small country, there would be few dealers and not a lot of variety.

Boy was I wrong. All sorts of vehicles, from all over the globe, including the somewhat frail looking Renault 2CV (pictured above.) This French "answer" to the Volkswagen had some of the earlier specimens powered by engines with as little as nine horsepower! You never see them in the U.S., no way could they meet DOT standards.

This wasn't the only one I saw there, either.
