HISTORY: Louis Wassmer worked to the Fessenheim nuclear power station. He had always owned 2CV’s, up to the time that Citroen launched the Ami Super in 1973. He allowed himself to be convinced by the local Citroen dealer to order one of the bottom of the range models. But once in possession of the car, he realized that it did not suit him. He was not able to get used to the floor mounted gearchange and the reversed gear shift pattern. He drives no more than 2000km by 1980! He goes out in it sometimes on a Saturday or Sunday to go shopping.

In 1980, he goes back to his first love and purchases a 2CV AZAM of 1966, which was in good condition despite already being 14 years old. He uses this car in place of the Ami Super but without driving an enormous amount. He does not get rid of the Ami Super but keeps it well protected. Several years before his death, the 2CV and Ami Super are placed in a garage 30kms from his home.

After the death of the gentleman in 2012 at the age of 83 years, his nephew inherits the Ami Super as no one else wanted it. He gets it back to being roadworthy but as he is heading to the United States, he has the good idea of asking to place the car at the home of my friend Etienne Musslin, chief editor of the excellent magazine ‘Planet 2CV’. Etienne knows of my museum and knowing the way I work, he realizes it is the best destination for this car.
