Bond Cars

The first car I can remember my parents owning was a Citroen 2CV. I adored that car - so much that somebody at some point bought me the Corgi version, or perhaps bought it for themselves and had to surrender it?

I got rid of all the other beat-up toy cars from my childhood, but I always hung on to the dear old 2CV and kept it near me.

I have only just found out it's the James Bond For Your Eyes Only model. (It's not marked as such, but as far as I can gather from the internet, if it's yellow with a red interior it's the Bond one.)

So I guess a) this is the first 007 collectible I owned, and b) it's moving from my desk to my Bond shelf now.
