Who Wudda Thunk?
Among other things, the Mille Miglia was famous for hordes of Fiat 500 Topolinos which, as Stirling Moss said (I paraphrase) "had no business being in the event and mostly crashed and burned within the first few kilometers."
The Citroen 2CV was even more underpowered than a Topolino. Henry Lobes and Yves de Faily were DNF on those baby buggy wire wheels. The Beauty Part: they were only 30-40% down the list of DNF's, so they outran or outlasted many of the Topolinos. Sacrebleu!
