Sorry I forgot to mention the location. That was in Vienna Austria :-)
On top of that black board where the "menu" was written, there was red colored text: "HY Kitchen Wien - London".
More information in her facebook pages (German language) :( https://www.facebook.com/HYKitchen" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I was in Eastleigh today, and saw 2 Mauritius Blue Xantia hatchbacks within a couple of miles of each other, an S reg and a W reg. No further details as I was driving in the opposite direction.

Only one genuine HVan spot so far from overseas, so your Vienna HVan is more than worth the standard 50 points for an unusual spot :)

I think I have just about exhausted the North East, but the Tour de France is coming to North Yorkshire just down the road next week, and I expect a few Citroen-H's will be making an appearance either in the Caravan or feeding the crowds!

at least 51 points waiting for you here!

Well, although I spotted a few Citroens today, the one that stood out was a black Citroen Traction in Eridge, East Sussex.

Schoolboy error from me. "Look there's a Xantia Estate" ....... " Nah! Its a ZX" ....or words to that effect were used in Thirsk North Yorkshire today :-D

I just saw two 2CVs & a Peugeot 304 convertible in convoy. No picture as I was on my bike, I think they may have been French registered black plates with white letters.
