Excellent picture Luke, they set eachothers styling off nicely.

I saw a Avantime parked one car infront of a Vel Satis on Saturday in France, not often you see them together.

I saw a Silver Activa today on the island, it was parked up outside the Ponda rosa pub next door to my brothers house, i was there in the van and for a second had thoughts of going home to get mine and the camera to get a nice matching pair photo until my brother pointed out that would be rather sad AND that it made me look like some sort of peeping tom/car pervert, he was right of course, so i didnt :roll:

XM Prestige PRV6 92
Talbot Express Autotrail Chinook 89
Mitsubishi L200 Trojan 14
Xantia Activa 95, sold (missed)

Service Citroen is awesome, it shows me pictures of all the parts i used to be able to buy............

Ah, the Avantime. A pointless, bonkers car. I'll have one some day.

It was the car that put Matra in the poor house, wasn't it?

I just spotted a C6 this eveing on a 58 plate in a usual C6 shade of grey/blue. Seemed to have the Alezan interior.

Wow Dean, I'm surprised you resisted that temptation, not sure if I could have :lol: It must be getting on for two years since I last saw a Activa on the road in the UK.

Deans brother is right, going back for your camera would be sad in the extreme, its just a car and not a very special one at that especially when you have the same sort of car at home.
