Thanks Steve but i do like to take my car to Citroen shows....especially to make up the Xantia numbers as its often strong on older models but not so many newer ones.

I hope its dry on the sunday at least...he selfishly says :lol: ...sorry :P

I'll have to take the car to work and back saturday as im off on the monday so cant take a van home....better not get keyed like it did once before :roll:

Toby things dont usually get going at shows until about 10:30 at the earliest as people are still travelling and campers are still waking up and having breakfast etc.

Personally i plan on getting there for about 9 which i think co incides exactly when the cafe opens :P I'll be dying for a brew i reckon after the drive down :lol:

Everything opens at 10.

Here's the programme. It'll take ages to download as it's a massive PDF...

Due to circumstances, I'm unlikely to be there very early today (Saturday) if at all. It's been a bit of a week one way and another. I'll be there early on Sunday and note the Xantia Tech session on Sunday at 13:30.

A good breakfast sounds like a good idea Vince!!!

I'm making a move at around 2pm, when I get there I'll setup my tent and go searching for food :yeah:
I'll be in a white Xantia with a load of air and oil filters in the rear seat footwells.

Really looking forward to this tomorrow. Glad the turnout is good, whats the weather like though ? Just on the train home from work in liverpool. Not sure how clean my car will be, im falling asleep im so tired...its been a long week for me too...the thought of cleaning my car ready for the morning is not appealing to me right now. Hope there are some good citroen goodies to be had. :)

It's gonna be a good 'un Vince. Excellent day today.

The museum is awesome. Need a couple of visits to really appreciate.

It's a heartbreaker though. To see all that great British stuff and to see the prototypes that did not make it to production that would have been winners...


TR7 estate anyone? Absolutely sensational.

MG ragtop based on a Mini? They had two goes at that and never made it. Absolutely criminal and a crying shame :cry:

Weather is set fair for tomorrow :D

I can completely agree Jim...been several times before but there's always things you think..."I don't remember that!" :)

Change of plan for us...now in the C6 rather than BX.
