Bumper weekend snaps coming up - and we haven't got to Bromley yet...

Thanks to Mouseflakes for the heads up, I took a drive to Farnham to attend the Citroen GS meet at the Rural life museum, near Farnham. Knowing the fact I may never see so many GS' and GSA's in one place, I took a lesuirely drive up there to show you a selection of cars there. As expected with this type of car, the owners were friendly and most welcoming. Alas there were no Renaults this year though...

Pleased to have seen this arrive. These went up to E reg and of course lived forever as the C15 Van. I wonder if any of the original Visas exist?

Posted Image

Even by Visa/GS standards this Ami van is rare.

Hurrah! First small indicator BX model I've seen in years.

Alfa wheels look quite good on this.

Unsurprisingly, I know a great many of those Citroens and have driven the Jade Green GSA. Deliciously smooth.The CX with Alfa alloys has just turned up on Retro Rides. It's stunning - and I am far from a lover of alloys on old cars.I'm actually off to play with a small-indicator BX tomorrow afternoon hopefully. Can't wait!

Thanks for those Mr. Loud. Love the cream Ami 6. I'd never realised these were booted - always assumed it was a hatch.

Posted Image

I went to Tilford a couple of years back and thought it was a thoroughly pleasant little gathering. There were 8 Renners that year (mine was one of three R30s!!).

I finished the welding on the XM and got it mot'd last week and was all ready to travel to Farnham in it with the family today (were there any XMs present?).

Unfortunately our little lad has spent the weekend projectile vomiting so we had to call the trip off (the XM's interior is far to good to risk that :wink: ).

I WILL buy a GS/GSA at some point. If I can (barely) cope with an Alfa V6, I can cope with anything. Though even I would draw the line at a C-matic...Mouseflakes - the Citroen GS is also booted only, like the Ami 8 saloon. The Seventies really was the era of 'should have been a hatchback' what with the Princess, CX, GS, Ami 8 etc.

The Ami was indeed a LHD model, I think I saw it at Bromley a few years back. The GS is on my list of cars I'd like to have (CILH), the experiences of changing a starter motor (which was a major job) and the rampant rust on a mates 1979 special was enough to make me think twice. I think out of them all, I liked the green one, the colour was perfect and those steel wheels are very evocative.

Here are a few more snaps taken over the weekend:

Here's that Allegro, in stunning condition.

Hey mnde, do you know the owner of this GSA?

Posted Image

I was speaking to him at the event and he's currently waiting in line to join the forum. I can't recall his user name, but maybe you could give the mods a poke to activate his account.

A few examples of some of the Capris on show at Castle combe from last weekend. As I mentioned there were a huge amount of capris, I took snaps about 60 of them, but I'll only post a selection of the more interesting ones. There were obviously a huge amount of mk3 capris, particularly the later models, and lots of well loved mk1's, but curiously mk2 examples were fairly low in comparison. Are they less collectable? I rather like the understated shape.

A few snaps from the already documented Bromley and last weekends Fatha's day knebworth event. I was honoured to have bumped into Seth and his Minx, who was just as trigger happy as me. The quality and condition of some of the cars at that event was extraordinary.

Start off with a small selection of cars at the Knebworth event:

Posted Image

Parked outside the enclosure.

Posted Image

Bizarre fairground ride. I can only assume the TR7 used was beyond saving.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

This Devon had a wrap around rear screen - Seth suggested it was an Oz import.

Posted Image

Posted Image

This was in stunning condition, not only that but I believe the owner had restored and fabricated much of the bodywork himself. It won car of the event.

A few spots from the last few weeks:

Posted Image

I reckon this would have been one of the last beta coupes, a marketing ploy to bodge on a yugoesque body kit and sell them them. Shame really, the normal ones are clean looking cars.

Posted Image

Looks like an American market grill kit. Look neats, me thinks.

You have to be quite insane to drive this. I have a toy majorette version exactly the same as this.

http://farm4.static....baf3a85ca_o.jpg

One thats just managed to avoid the crusher. Just.

http://farm4.static....dea041e8d_o.jpg

The driveway had 3 more cars and I suspect there's more in the garage, backgarden and kitchen.

This toyotas reg looks vaguely familiar.

And over to Bromley, I took snaps of about 400 cars, but I'll only post up a few as quite a few of these cars would have been seen before on here.

http://farm4.static....dd2879171_o.jpg

http://farm4.static....abac6637e_o.jpg

http://farm4.static....1280b6bdb_o.jpg

Those into Datsun know all about this car, but the owner was stationed in Japan in the early 70's. Apparently all his colleagues bought normal versions of the car , he found himself a 1969 SSS twin carb version and imported it into the UK when he left and has looked after it ever since. This car is worth a small fortune! Nice chap too.

http://farm4.static....0efe2f8cc_o.jpg

http://farm4.static....76eccfa9e_o.jpg

Slightly disappointed by the Renault stall this year - previous years have been excellent, but this year had far too many Alpine and modern Renaults. I saw this very car cruising effortlessly on the M27 recently.

http://farm4.static....f2a6548b6_o.jpg

http://farm4.static....d92dce2e1_o.jpg

http://farm4.static....268196d4f_o.jpg

Had a good chat with the knowledgeable owners, the car was originallly plated LYN 1D in the 70's (obviously not age related) the current owner bought the car and let the owner keep the plate and applied for a much more suitable one. The owners also have a S1 Peugeot 305S and Talbot Horizon!

http://farm4.static....e730a53a2_o.jpg

http://farm3.static....fb090da55_o.jpg

Glad this still exists, saw it at JAE a few years back but it looks like it needs a bit of work.

http://farm4.static....946bcc76b_o.jpg

I think I'll take this one home, you can keep your Capris!

Can post of more if you really want to see them.
