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

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.

Sorry if i sound like a fool, but do you need to book beforhand to attend this event.....or is it just turn up?

kinda feeling like a ridiculous road trip tomorrow......

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?

      It didn't happen last year because I wasn't fit enough.  This year, and on the wave of having done Inverness for Christmas, I'm feeling up to a south-coast trip again.  This of course means there will be the usual Shiters' lunch meet at the burger van on Portsdown Hill, most likely on Wednesday May 13th.  I'll be in the wheelchair bus, sorry; MrsR has vetoed taking Hairy Pussy even before I've got it home.
      We will also be stopping each way at a Travelodge or Premier Inn somewhere in the Midlands, so there might be an opportunity for a Midlands Massiv Meet too.  Or even two of them!  It worked well enough at Cumbernauld!

      Anyone else going? UKSaabs is having a show there again this year, so do stop by and say hello.
      One of the advantages of having a stand is you get a code so your club members can get a discount on admission prices on the Saturday and Sunday. Not a huge amount of saving but anything is welcome. They insist that only members can get the discount code, but as you lot are all* members of UKSaabs if you want the code, drop me a PM and it will come back by return.

      Quick poll to see who is available when.
       
      Happy to update the polls with any suggestions!

      For the first time this year we were actually able to attend this show. It's only 8 miles from home but in previous years we'd always managed to avoid finding out about it until a few days afterwards A free event in the Market Square and High Street, there were probably about 150 cars there including a lot I hadn't seen before, so here's some highlights.

      Hi all,
       
      Bit of a random one but do any Manchester/Derbyshire/South or West Yorkshire based Shiters fancy a meetup sometime in Glossop?
       
      I know it's not exactly a sprawling metropolis but it has a reasonably priced car park, a Wetherspoons, a caff, etc.
       
      Main reason for suggesting it is it's a nice drive in from most directions - over Holme Moss from the North or Snake Pass from Sheffield direction.
       
      The A624 from the south isn't too bad either.
       
      Something like a Thursday evening would be best for me but open to suggestions.
