I'd have to consult the Board on that one... :lol: :wink:

Best "Citroen by Loeb Edition" would be a good one too...

Managed to sort a few pictures out - here's some of the Saturday.

This little C1 caught my eye when it rolled in - sporting that twin exit exhaust it didn't sound bad at all, especially with it's 1/2 a V6...

Image

The start of the glorious weather, and cars slowly filtering in.

Image

Good to see Mr Emblem's GTi Turbo again that he's had for a very long time - bought from Roger "back in the day" and still wears the CX Centre Plates. Aftermarket Wheels are due to the TRX Tyres cost, although original T Slots are in the garage...

Image

Image

Some more XMs...

Image

A different view-point from the back of the field, note Andy filling up his Xantia!

Image

This ZX Volcane 3 Door was a cracking car to see - didn't manage to chat with the owners I don't think but a lovely lovely car...

Image

Mr Seabrook's Green Tiger BX stands out a bit in the line-up...

Image

The starts of the formation of the convoy drive to Bletchley Park. We had 39 cars start off, and 35 made it... Never saw the other four...

Image

And some more at the back including Chris' V6 and Dean's Activa:

Image

Convoy (I agree with Andy's comments that we should have had the theme song playing...):

Image

Image

A quarter of the line-up at Bletchley Park:

Image

Another quarter:

Image

Matthew's XM V6:

Image

Will's XM 2.1 SD with others behind and the mansion:

Image

Steve's C6 looking particularly nice:

Image

Another part of the line-up:

Image

Jim's Activa, Dom's Safari, Will's XM 2.1 SD and Penny's XM:

Image

Jim's Activa:

Image

Back on-site, and Steve and Ron's C6s:

Image

Matthew taking Chris' V6 for a spin:

Image

Maurice's and Penny's near identical XMs:

Image

French registered CX 20:

Image

Dean's and Jim's Activae:

Image

One corner of the camping area:

Image

A few Gs:

Image

Nice sunset above the C6s:

Image

Couldn't resist a few night shots again this year, this one was at 21:10 Saturday Night:

Image

Sunday pictures will follow once they've been sorted out...

He didn't hang around for too long Chris as I think he was working in the area so called in. Was chatting with him and Jon (DS3R) and he runs the CityBig forum apparently.

Thanks Chris - I liked that one too! I can send the full res one over if you want...

No worries Chris - just sent it over.

...and here they are. Manage to whittle them down to a much lower number so here's some from Sunday:

En route to Little Horwood from the hotel on the Sunday Morning we had an impromptu convoy with Sandre/Caffiend with her BX TZD Turbo through all most of Milton Keynes finest roundabouts...

Image

Also spotted James in his Prestige coming the opposite way so had to take a quick snap...

Image

The field was filling up nicely, and here's a view from the back of the field...

Image

Jason's V6 looking very smart indeed, and Darren's XM V6 in the background. Both went to go onto win 1st Prizes for Xantia and XM...

Image

My C4 looking deceptively clean. Eagle eyed people will spot the XM Bodykit stashed in it...

Image

Was great to see this CX again as it used to be one of ours - a DTR Turbo 2...

Image

...and this GTi Turbo 2 as well:

Image

This particular CX won Best CX this year - the owner has owned it from new!

Image

Lightly modified XM...

Image

Lovely CX Safari...

Image

This CX 25 Pallas IE was a lovely car:

Image

A trio of Visa GTi's!!

Image

BXs were out in force:

Image

As were the XMs and owners:

Image

This S1 XM was tasty...

Image

Great Xantia Line-up, with most being V6s and some Activa's!

Image

Jason's V6 again:

Image

Dean's Activa:

Image

A sea of Citroens:

Image

Image

A very early CX 2200 Diesel!!

Image

CX Line-up:

Image

Image

XM 2.5TDness:

Image

Some more CXs:

Image

Prize-giving and Raffle:

Image

Image

Ron's Monkey got a new home...

Image

Bon Voyage...

Image

James' Prestige:

Image

A nice pairing...

Image

Want... Jon's DS3R:

Image

Image

Chris's V6:

Image

A Family Re-union: Roger's V6 and Roger's Sister's V6. Funnily enough Jason has bought the Silver V6 from dad - a fitting new home!

Image

James leaving:

So Jason now has two V6s! I would love his red S1, a stunning car.

Behind me in the queue! :lol: I can see us owning it again one day, and definitely a 'keeper'. A V6 with LPG is the ultimate combo', and what with it being Roger's car too...

Definitely, I would have to put that among my top favourite Citroens, the rare colour, condition, engine, spec, its an S1 and it is on LPG. It's superb!

What are Jasons plans for the silver S2? Daily driver?

Well Roger's V6 will be off the road for the winter as to preserve it and his wife Chell will be selling her Focus and using the Series 2 (she can only drive Auto). Jason's got a work van so will use the S2 a bit but not that much. His and hers! :-D :lol:

That sounds like a fantastic idea, and what an upgrade! From a Focus to a V6 Xantia 8-)

Good to hear the crimson beauty will be out of the salt, my Xantias will be too.
