Babette's journey across the English Channel in 2007

Babette, our 1964 2CV AZAM was imported from Germany to the UK back in 2007. 

We've only owned her since last month, November 2015, but she came with a huge collection of photos from previous owners. This is really great as it also shows she slept in a garage all her life and was well looked after.

Mr B, the man who imported her in the UK and who I've recently been in touch with, was a loving owner for the 5 years he had her.

Here are some photos of Babette arriving in Calais to board the ferry:

After an overnight crossing, here she is in the UK with a very happy Mr B:

And here she is finally at her new Oxfordshire home:

It's incredible to think these photos were shot eight years ago as when you look at my recent photos, she just has not changed one bit, kept in perfect condition.
