Spotted this Dutch Traction Avant going up the A1 today so couldn't resist a few pictures.

...and out of the back window (of the C6) - those Yellow Lamps are excellent!

Image

Obviously over here for the ICCCR I would presume...

Also a few other Citroen Spots:

Yep, I'll guess we will see that Traction in a few days time 8-)

No doubt there are many Citroens venturing North over the weekend and next few days, what a thought! 8-)

There's a distinct lack of Xantia's around here - where are they all?

Good spots Franklin, that green XM estate (P208 CMO) is a regular sight at CCC events. We had an XM with P104 CM), so I always remember that green one!

That 6H was very nice to see at the ICCCR, one of the 74 6Hs built in RHD at slough, you could count the remaining cars with a few fingers :lol: Shame it no longer lives in the UK.

Anyway, while away following ICCR, I spotted in Windermere but had no Camera an ICCR DS and the 2CV with the very "artistic" paint job on it - the screnery one...

I did get a shot of this C6 in a car park is Keswick..

Image

Not you steve is it?? :-D :-D

Later in the week, we went to Ulverston Motor Museum.. in the Car Park we spotted another ICCR candidate..

Image

With ICCR full event sticker in the front window, and over the other side the White BX 16 Valve from france was with it. Didnt take a pic of that...

However, IN the Museum there was One DS that wasnt at ICCR....

Image

Image


Can be described like most DS at ICCR.. Immaculate

But, though not completely french, this rare beast was there...(Just had to share this)

Image

Image

Note the steering wheel position (No its not a reversed picture). At least it has a PRV in it...

And.. whats this?? ....

Image

Answers on a post card.. I do know what it is... ill tell you later experts.. :wink: :-D :-D

Well that was a turn up for the books! :shock:

Heading back from the Anglia Car Auctions Classic Car Sale today (blimey it was hot today...!) and at the "Elme Hall" Roundabout at Wisbech, Cambs when that Silver C4 Coupe I spotted the other day went across (here http://c4owners.org/plugins/forum/forum ... php?170433" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ) and couldn't believe it...

THEN another C4 Coupe was behind him, in that lovely blue. Amazingly we was all going the same way although we turned off about 400 yards up the road...

A few pics (sorry for poor quality!)

Image

Just see the Silver one here:

Image

Image

Image

They must be enthusiasts of the C4 though as they were definitely in convoy...

Wonder if they noticed the Loeb behind them?!!
