    It’s actually a Citroën 2CV.

    Oh, that’s right, the _other_ Renault.

    I’m not hooked up right.

    Corrected, thx!

  3. Thanks for posting the picture of me. I remember the day this photo was shot; I was thinking to myself, “That’s a pretty cool little car in front of me.”

    If you dig Ferraris, check out http://www.FOGRally.com.

    This year, 2012, FOG will be raising money for Blue Planet Network (BPN). BPN provides clean sustainable water for countries that need clean sustainable water — even for the US.

    Please check us out.

    BTW, that front plate on my car is illegal — my car was in a photo shoot, and I forgot to remove it; I always drive without front plates. See y’all around.

    Check 6.

    Actually both the original post and Andrew are correct. The Deux Chevaux (two horses in French) refers to French taxing horsepower (this model with a larger engine is actually “three horses” but never mind) but the name was abbreviated to 2CV in English to aid speakers, like me, who have difficulty getting their tongues (or spelling skills) around Deux Chevaux.
    The 2CV is mine but I don’t remember the incident, which is surprising since I spend a good deal of time looking in the rear mirror to avoid being run over by speedy BMWs or Ferraris.
    At 28 horsepower the 2CV isn’t often seen in such elegant company. I love the tongue in cheek caption which suggests the opposite in San Francisco.
    And thanks, Alfonso, for the reference to Blue Planet Network!
