If you like travelling in your 2CV, you need the

Apua-Help - The International 2CV Road Service Booklet



The Idea

The Apua-Help is a small but useful booklet, which contains addresses of 2CV drivers all around the world, who would help other 2CV drivers, if they had any problems with the local language, their car or anything else. Since 1975 (when the 1st International Meeting of 2CV Friends take place in Finland) the Finnish 2CV Guild publishes the International APUA-HELP 2CV Road Service Booklet. In the beginning it listed mainly Finns, but more and more foreign helpers have appeared time after time now listing nearly 1000 names from 33 countries all over the world (A, AUS, B, CDN, CH, CZ, D, DK, E, F, GCA, GB, GR, H, HR, I, IL, IND, IRL, L, N, NL, NZ, P, PL, RA, ROU, S, SF, SLO, USA, UZ, ZA). All people listed will give their help to other 2CV friends in trouble in true 2CV solidarity. The help is given on a volunteer basis according to the possibilities of every individual helper. Since the actual issue also includes 2CV and Citroën club addresses

The System

The booklet is based on the following ABCDE system, that means every entry in this little helper begins with a listing of a combination of these characters.
A B C D E
I will help foreign 2CV friends if the have problems. I know where it is possible to get spare parts (new or used). I can take a 2CV in tow to a repair shop. I know a place where it is possible to spend a night for an economic price. I will show the interesting places of my home locality to other 2CV friends.

The Next Issue

The next Apua-Help is planned to be published in the spring of 1999 for the following two years. The deadline for the Apua-Help 1999-2000 is winter of 1998
