Business To Go: 1961 Citroën 2CV Truckette

Conventional wisdom would suggest that the middle of a global pandemic is a bad time to start a business...but that same wisdom would have told Bill Gates to get a job at Radio Shack or Howard Hughes to become a journeyman aircraft I'm going to throw convention into the wind like an empty toilet paper roll and suggest you start a business with this next vehicle.  What kind of business, you say?  Oh...good point.  You tell me in the comments.  Find this 1961 Citroën 2CV truckette offered for $18900 in South Lake Tahoe, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Tim.

  1. $19K?! I want some of what the seller is smoking!

    1. That is legal in CA, so maybe that is the business model. It has also been declared as essential in CO during Covid 2019 if you want to re-locate it there.

  2. 10 mm socket delivery for everyone stuck working on their cars at home.

  3. Inspector Clouseau would approve. But then drive it into the nearest swimming pool.
