optional extras Model T style

Not many #cars make you question the historical development of footwear but, unless you're particularly slight of foot, the width of 21st century shoes can make engaging reverse in a #ford model T tricky.

Step forward the reverse pedal extension Simple, reliable and far more comfortable than wearing shoes several sizes too small.

1965 #Citroen 2cv Sahara

The Sahara is one of the rarest (and arguably strangest) of all 2cv variants, the four wheel drive 2cv.

The standard engine wasn't really cut out for powering all four wheels, Citroen's (ingenious) solution? Fit another engine in the boot.

What I didn't realise until seeing this photo was that you engaged all wheel drive by starting up the other engine (does that mean you could run the Sahara in rear-engine, rear drive mode too? Making it potentially the only rear wheel drive production 2cv too.)

There are only 100 2cv Sahara remaining, with only 30 in roadworth condition. This car is for sale +Classic Car Auctions sale at +PC Restoration Show at NEC
