“I shouldn’t have neglected this car,” I thought out loud, with many more verbalized expletives.

I own a 1986 2CV6 Charleston. It's getting painted at the moment. Thanks for the 2CV story. It is a selcome break from the muscle cars and predictable hotrods.
Keep at it Ronan! The 2CV is worthy of the attention, and it will take you on that long-anticipated trip. If you need a boost of encouragement, look up "Hub Nut" on YouTube -- his 2CV6 "Ellie" has been a daily driver and took him on a two week trip to Croatia and back to Wales a year or so ago. His video adventures are fun, and inspiring for those of us who aspire to gearheadedness.
