First spot wasn't a car, but infact a FCF Member...! Walking around Cromer and bumped into Chris570 and his family - couldn't believe it...! :o Such a small world! Good to see you Chris, and Ron, and see you at CXM in a few weeks Chris... :)

Then on the way home spotted a Series 1 XM, reckon it was one of MTXMs - will post it up on Club-XM...

He gets about a bit does Chris. I saw him in North Devon on Saturday...

We also spotted a DS down that way too...

Spoke to the German owner with every intention of going back and gleaning more information on it, but failed to do so, sorry.

It was, as you can see, a lovely lime colour.

saw something while working home yesterday.., I couldn't get close but know where it parks.. never seen one before and no idea what it is,,

based on this crap description, anyone think of what it is? :mrgreen:

Maroon with a cream roof, 4 door, 1950's or 60's maybe..
very quirky
Sure it was a Citroen by the way the rear wheels were half covered.

the main noticeable feature.. the back window had inverted rake...

They're very rare here John but used to be as common as muck in France. I don't think they were imported in any great numbers into the UK as we preferred the Ami 8 estate version.

Value for a good one will be high...
