Ebay Finds: The Old World

It's pop quiz time!  What happens when you mix the French and the English?  Usually, the answer revolves around centuries of war, the U.S. sending GIs to save both from the Germans, or a bunch of people with funny accents mocking each other's culinary skills.  However, this isn't one of those times.  Today, we bring you an Ebay find that is as pretty as Kate Middleton and as stalwart as Charles de Gaulle. 

The Pembleton Brooklands is a kit car built in England that can accommodate a myriad of small engines.  A quick Google search will find most variants are powered by 2-cylinder boxers or v-twins.  This particular example is powered by the motor from a Citroen 2CV.  With a respectable 29 horsepower powering the 900 lb car, it sounds like a blast to drive.  Read the full history of the car on the eBay listing.
