Looks like a grand day out - I had it earmarked but I was already otherwise engaged, went to watch the TCR UK event at Knockhill. Shame they were the same day.

I had plan to drag the family to this but cort jr wasn’t feeling very well so it was aborted . Looks like a good show .

.... "the only way to learn it is by doing it"...


Trouble is that people increasingly lack the patience / attention span to do so.

The visa/GS/GSA/2cv all seemed to draw people who's parents/grandparents had one - was nice to see them remembering trips out:)

We need that Visa down here in Buckinghamshire on September 8th! :-)

What's on the 8th September?

I really need to sit down and get all the Citroen shows in my diary so the Activa can get to them... she's been a regular fixture at many for many years and it will confuse people if she's not there!

Current fleet: 1996 Citroen Xantia 2.0T Activa. 1993 Lada Riva 1.5EFi Estate. 1975 AC Model 70. 1985 Sinclair C5.

Went out for a tasty Mexican dinner in this tonight.

Parked in the 'hipster' spots, by the door, naturally!

Yes! :-)

 

The Citroen Car Club's 'Chevrons Rally' at Little Horwood in north Bucks is going to host a special get-together of as many Visas as possible, to celebrate their 40th anniversary. Six-cylinder rather bravely volunteered to take the lead on organising this part of the event, so I know he'd welcome the support. More details here:

In for an MOT..

A failure, but only 2 wee patches of welding.

1 on offside front floor, one on offside rear sill.

Boys at MOT centre were impressed!

Yep, shouldn't be too bad.

I had a look under it when on the ramp - properly solid thing, and no real areas of concern beyond the welding.

Shouldn't take much to gitter tiptop.

In celebration, I treated her to new wipers in the correct size (16")

That sound you can hear is the anguished cry of Dollywobbler as he sees the flat blades:)
