Enthusiasts celebrate Citroen 2CV's 70th birthday with a Kiwi convoy

The tiny Citroen 2CV, one of France's most divisive cars, is celebrating it's 70th birthday.

Some love them, some hate them, but Citroen 2CVs are instantly recognisable. 

They come with crazy suspension designed for French farmers to carry a basket of eggs across a ploughed field without breaking any.

"Vive la France's most diminutive, most recognisable set of wheels," says Seven Sharp reporter Michael Holland.

He joined a convoy of Citroen 2CVs which wended its way - a lot of the time on a lean - from Whanganui to the rustic outpost of Ohura in a celebration of the tiny car's 70 years on the road.

Check out his report in the video above.
