Remember you don't have to drive a Citroen to get in.! 

I think I'll give it a miss this year. There's a replacement Valeo alternator on the way for the CX, so I'm not going to risk poisoning myself again with the  oul hydrogen sulphide gas until this is fitted.

Turning up in a shiter's diesel Borat just seems a bit inappropriate given that Chevrons means Citroën.

what day are you going Chris? Both? I am now thinking of coming up on Sunday, and bringing the 2CV back in SUN!

Both days. In fact starting 5 pm Friday night and looking for volunteers on site before they consume alcohol to help me get some of my cars up there.

I have nothing but work planned this weekend, but have no money to come along sadly. Maybe next year!

Plus I need to do said work or I am financially worse than usual in about 4 days time when I've spent the £30 I have left

I'm probably about on Sunday after I finish work at 12 if you want a hand bringing some back from the show. 

I will need some help or driving a car 6 miles walk back for the next one and repeat 9 times is not going to work!

My Citroens are gathering, champing at the bit to see who gets to go first!

The MX5 has been sent to Coventry the lay-by across the street for not being in with the the in crowd!

And yes that is the Allegro hiding in the corner pulling a sicky to stay around! Indicators don't work so I am not keen to drive it at the moment.

The defence line need to be on their guard as the Maxi will be trying to infiltrate the Citroen ranks once again :)

If we get any problems we will simply remove or cover up the M and the I on the badges and tell everyone it's a kit car based on a Citroen AX 😊.

I will tell them to measure the length of all AXs so you will get found out!

^^^ I remember going to an Alfa Day at Stanford Hall some years back, where someone had dressed up a small red Japanese car (I forget which model) as an Alfa Romeo, complete with fake badging fore and aft. This impostor was parked up quite happily with a set of 90s/00s Alfas and to be honest, it was hard to tell it wasn't one...

I spent this afternoon inputting three months worth of invoices into quickbooks. Tomorrow will be spent recording which of these has been paid and which bills we have paid. We are STILL being ignored by our so called accountant though, so the next words I speak to them will be “ you’re sacked”. £3000 a year and they can’t reply to an email within a week?!

but this leaves my Sunday free for cars.

No need to book, just turn up and enjoy! :-)

The weather will be good and the venue is delightful. Lots of great Citroens, friendly folk, a bar and a BBQ.

I was last there 2 years ago, doing a collection which would have made a good thread on here. A lift to Inverness airport, easyjet from there to Luton, picked up in a citroen XM by a member here, driven to the rally where I collected Gabby, a xantia 1,9td which was previously owned on this forum. Then a 550 mile drive home, on 3/4 a tank of derv. She served me well for a year running various ratios of veg/derv mix. I still own said xantia, however she is in a coma, not quite dead but only a slight chance of recovery.

Still need a hand tomorow Dude?

Mrs andyrew may join but the last Citroen owner experience she had when she came to collect a Dyane part once involved a jam making spandex wearing nut job so she has her concerns!

Anyone there with a yellow Dyane selling jam?

      This years NEC Classic Motor show November 8-10 is almost with us.
      Who is going?
      Myself and No1 son are looking at going Saturday 9th, I haven't been for about 9 years.

      I have mentioned this to a few shiters over the year and there seems to be some interest so I thought I would make it happen. It also gets the date into the AS Calendar before anything else gets organised for the same weekend.
      The location is half way between Lemans and Tours in Sarthe, Pays de Loire, France, approx 300 miles and 5 hours from Calais, or 120 miles and 2.5 hours from Caen. The date of 3-5 July is the Lemans Classic weekend, where there are great cars on track (where else will you see pre-war Bentleys power sliding and GT40s with glowing brake discs at night) and the car park is probably the biggest and best classic car show in Europe. The AS site is about 25 mins drive from the circuit, with easy access.
      The format is basically whatever you want it to be. The AS base will be at my place in France that a few shiters have visited. I am afraid the bedrooms are already booked, but there is 6 acres of level camping ground,  We will be travelling down from West Sussex via the tunnel and a combination of peage and back roads in a convoy of classics. You are welcome to join the convoy at any point or meet at the venue. We will travel down probably Thursday 2nd and most will return Monday 6th, but some will stay on for a week or two and you are welcome to stay on if you wish. The nearest bar is about 1km away, but 3km away is the famous "Hotel de France" in La Chatre sur le Loir (google it). You do not have to attend the Lemans Classic, if you would rather sit and drink beer (hopefully in the sun) that is fine.
      It will be up to the individuals to organise ferry/tunnel etc and getting there, I can provide camping ground, bogs, showers and a fridge for the beer. No commitment required especially at this stage, If you fancy a foreign trip with your chod, put your name down on the list. Nearer the time those still interested will get further details and the hidden location by PM. If anyone would prefer a B&B obviously they are in high demand around the classic, but I have a few contacts and could possibly find a room or two, but they would need to be booked fairly soon. No booking for camping is required.
      To give you an idea, whilst nothing is yet confirmed, the convoy down is likely to include a Gordon Keeble, a Rolls Royce 20/25, a Westfield, a Mk2 Jag and a Fiesta 1100. It will not be a fast convoy......
      Oooh La La, I'll help destroy the French wine lake

      I've not been before but apparently it's a bigun.
      If I go I'm happy to look out for unobtainium frogchod bits.

      Any shiters going to the Beaulieu International Autojumble this year? Always an interesting day out even if its mainly overpriced Austin 7 parts. 
       I have generally found that although pickings are slim for 70's/80's/90's shite, that if you do find it it is normally a bargain as it's just shite to the seller and "not for a real classic".  The paddock is always a laugh to see how much someone rekkons they can get for a well polished MG Midget made entirely of Bog, and the Bonhams tent is just funny to see how the upper 3% live.  What are other peoples experiences? 
      I'll be going on the Sunday from Oxford, would be good to meet up with other shiters at the Ale tent
