Normal car go to paradise, 2CV's go everywhere! Personnally I do prefer a front wheel drive that's a bit lighter than the beetle & uses less fuel. Then when you're stuck, 2-3 guys are enough to jack the front, another one puts the ladders under the wheels and off you drive. Besides, with 2 tanks easily packed in the car (40 + 50 liters), you drive almost 2'000 km on the road & probably around 1'000-1'200 on the piste. Tam-Agadez without refuelling, ain't it great?
Now if you talk about style & myth, choice is yours: I made mine! keep us posted!
