A Citroën Ami will always struggle to go up the hills of West Yorkshire, but if you’re a barber in a small town, you couldn’t ask for a more fitting company car.

There aren’t many Amis left on this planet, mostly because these basic Citroëns were barely more than rebodied 2CVs, which meant nobody cared for them once they started to show their age.
