Patty Schwarze Conquers the Alps in her 2CV

The Wall Street Journal profiled Citroënvie member Patty Schwarze on July 30, 2022, publishing a story about her adventure driving over the Alps while participating in the Liège-Brescia-Liège classic car rally in 2018.

Patty shipped her 1962 2CV to Europe where she and her girlfriend, both used to 2CV driving on the flat land of Florida, had to deal with Swiss mountain passes while watching out for bicyclists and motorcycles. To top it off, her girlfriend got motion sickness on the switchbacks.

Nevertheless, they managed to get to the finish line and ship her little grey 2CV back to America.
