The 2CV was an economy car produced by the French automaker Citroën between 1948 and 1990, designed to move the French peasantry on from horses and cars. It is considered one of Citroën´s most iconic cars. The 2CV was a great commercial success: within months after it went on sale, there was a three-year waiting list, which soon increased to five years. Popular French nicknames were "Deuche" (duck) and "Deudeuche". If you zoom in the photo, you can see that this 2CV is decorated with various ducks in reference to this nickname.
