You certainly do seem to spot a good few Citroens around your area.

I wish a good majority of people would get out of this obsession with needing a brand new car every 10 minutes and keep some of the older, more interesting stuff going for longer. :lol:

...it's a benefit of not having hills around here - you can see a Citroen on the horizon and I've got time to get the camera and take a picture! :lol:

Very funny, the following is necessary to show how much I laughed:

EDIT: In fact you need one of the above to see any distance round here.

Well that might well be a benefit.

As I headed down to the Norwich area a few weeks back I did spot a good few Citroens at a house/garage by the side of the road, just off a roundbaout I think it was.

It appeared to be the remains on a once used Citroen repair place, there were Xantias, BXs, Xms and even a C5 splattered (literally) about all over the garden of the house. They looked to have been there a good few years. I pulled up and the owner, who was working on his Honda (of all things!) came over and got chatting. Despite the fact him and his home being surrounded by Citroens and their remains, I didnt feel that he liked them. All he kept saying was that they were "alright". I think the new found love for Honda had cut in, possibly, even though it wasnt actually working!
Nevertheless, an interesting scene.

Kev, you did make me laugh with that! :lol:

Cheers Franklin, that's another one to go into the amusing images folder!

I'm in one of those moods Chris!
Something else, I have a distinct feeling we're doing this the wrong way round, Facebook for car chat and FCF for nonsense :lol:

:lol: Your probably right, but doing things the normal way is too ordinary :roll:
:lol:


Maybe I should carry the camera in my car and snap what little interesting French beauties I do spot. Might just do that. :)

I need to sort out my phone, its got a half decent camera bolted on the side of it but somethings up with the memory card as it wants me to format it. At least, I hope its the card so it needs testing. Trouble is, its a micro memory stick something and none of my card readers take ones that small. Typical, you buy a 98 in 1 reader and it never has the one you want.

Me and Toby had an old E reg AX between us the other day!

My mobile phone camera is awful, 2.0mb or something! Plus ive lost the lead thing to connect it to the computer and so transferring pictures means sending them to other phones so I can put them on the computer. New phone before too long though, then I might actually be posting up spotted pictures!

I should hope you did have an AX Kev, what with an Activa and 2.1TD, id be surprised if it thrashed you! :roll: :lol:

Im amazed at how many ZXs are left around there, they seem to have stood the test of time, around here at least, than most other cars. I saw a very nice white estate the other day, it looked immaculate, painted lower bumpers etc so obviously a good spec too, and a TD. Looked quite desirable.

PM me your address, Kev. I'll send you a Mirco SD Card USB adapter if you want.
