Clarkson and friends stirring up post Brexit crap about Europe? That's about as innovative as the France Surrenders meme. Still, I'm sure the Gammons will love it.

As for me, I love Citroëns , particularly ones with the hydrodynamic suspension.

So we're just going with the default YouTube recommendations and submitting them for a green now? As is, very much not the first time.

Cool, cool.

Joke's on them because French cars destroy themselves.

However:

This one...was so ridiculously ahead of it's time and innovative, I'm willing to forgive the French for all the other weirdness and craptacular disasters that have sprung forth from their loins.

You're gonna need to be more specific. All of them have muppetish qualities.

I would love one of those. I had a relative that owned one many years back, and I fell in love with it the minute I saw it.

True, but for a  guy who's spent a lot of time biatching recently about how much it sucks to get old and infirm he could try to put in even the most basic effort to mitigate it. Take a farking walk, do some stretches, maybe put down that sandwich

He's farming now. Sorta funny that he's taken up a job that requires long hours and physical exercise and still looks like he does.

He's just old I figure.

I've missed those guys. As someone who loved Top Gear. But hasn't found the time for The Grand Tour, this was like a trip down memory lane.

My father had this exact same car. Some of my oldest memories. It has the same engine as the 2cv, but there is an improved version with the GS engine. You could easily go 150kph on that one

You should. And if you get tired of the car reviews and celebrities racing, skip to the last few years. They have been focusing on having adventures around the world.

Jeremy Clarkson continuing to have a career is a damning indictment of the British people.

I think it would be great if Richard Hammond became the next well known narrator for animal/planet documentaries. Thankfully, David Attenborough will live forever and we won't seriously have to consider anyone else ever. EVER.

But where would they find a talking racist animal for him to enable and/or nod along with?  Wait a second...

When I was much, much, younger, the two cars I wished that I could afford were the DS and the 928. I still do.

I love Citroëns too and these Little Englander xenophobes need to get lost. Clarkson and his friends are between 900 years old and dead. Just hurry up and die, losers.

Speaking of French car weirdness...the Citroen Ami is a boxy little urban runabout.  The nifty innovation is that the designers have minimized the body panels to 2;  the front and back panels are identical, and the door is the same door panel regardless of which side it's on, since it opens from the front on one side and the back on the other.

Hmmm, every time those guys talked about old French cars, it's always been with affection. The worst I've seen them say about modern French cars, is that Peugeot are boring compared to what they used to be.
