Wrong end of the country for me sadly. I would need to tack it onto some sort if holiday or some such to justify it.

Should be a good weekend though.

Hoping to be there tomorrow but I appear to have a leak of some sort and can't trace it.

Fingers crossed and bus fare home.

It was a very enjoyable weekend putting aside the rather rubbish weather :( Citroen people (which I guess I now technically am one) are a lovely bunch of helpful freindly souls.

Shame about the weather. Looked a good attendance and a good selection of cars including the interloper. I'm sure that's allowed as it's a fellow shitter.

Must try and get my GS to more things next year.

And Gabby is sleeping in a motorway service hotel, bloody expensive, just less than 1/2 way home. New owner, me, happily skint lol. There are plans afoot for a bit of a change of character for this old French shitter, but I shall start her own thread in a day or two. All I am letting on right now is that at 54 I should be sensible but I am not haha

A fine selection of Citroens but who dumped that old Maxi there?

 

Hard to pick a favourite. The CX Loadrunner was brilliant but far too big to be practical, the Light 15 Faux Cabriolet was interesting if a bit odd, and the DS Decap was stunning but way out of my price range. There was something very likeable about the red Ami Break though and we both agreed that would be the one we'd take home.
