France’s answer to the Volkswagen Beetle, the Citroën 2CV, sold nearly 4 million copies in its 40-plus years of production. Now fans of the Deux Chevaux are gathering to celebrate the car at the 19th international “Amis de la 2CV” in Salbris, France.

Organizers expect more than 6,000 owners to bring their 2CVs to the July 26-31 event, where they will compete in a disassemble-reassemble competition, check out four of the original prototypes designed in the 1930s and get a look at the Citroën Revolte concept introduced at the 2009 Frankfurt motor show.

There will also be a bring-and-buy sale, children’s events, driving simulators and, of course, a few 2CVs on hand for those wishing to get behind the wheel.
