The classic Citroën 2CV—designed in part to transport up to two farmers and 100 pounds of potatoes—is the engine powering a new self-guided driving tour of northern France. Organized by Les Belles Échappées, the trip includes use of your own 2CV, a map marked with bistros, one night at La Sapinière hotel, breakfast, and a dinner (expect foie gras appetizers and lamb chop entrées). You're on your own for lunch, and the car is perfect for picnicking: The backseat can be removed and placed on the grass. les-belles-echappees.com, from $199 per person.
