First Day thread-C1.C2.C3.C4.C5 (originals please)

Post by NewcastleFalcon »

How about a new tradition, a first day of the month new thread.
So today October 1st 2020 and today only,
Can you contribute an original picture taken today, to assemble full set of Citroen cars spotted today from C1 to C5 to make it easy. :?:
C6's and C8's arent an everyday spot but bonus points if you manage to photograph one of those.
Originals only so I'll start it off with an October 1st C1 "Platinum".....must be the creme de la creme of C1's :-D
Ive already got myself a modest Brag hand Ace High Pair of 3's

Here's a sad looking C1 in Elsree airfield car park and today's shot of my steed.

For some reason I cannot add the pictures from the phone so I will edit them in tonight!!

So here are the pictures plus some Citroens found on the way home!! :-D

There you go, that’s Mrs Michel’s C3 Picasso complete with the lazy neighbour’s recycling boxes, shot about 10 min ago.

C2's are a bit thin on the ground, but I thought I would get a C4 pretty easily....not yet but the light hasnt quite gone yet and one more dog walk to come :-D

I had already got myself a modest Brag hand, Now a poker hand but not the straight I was looking for.
Three of a Kind, an Ace and a 5

Looks like the combined resources have missed out communally on a C2 and any of the various incarnations of the C4.

I will not be adding to my own contributions tonight so I end up with originals of C1, C3, C3, C3 and a C5.

I conclude from that that the C3 is indeed Citroens most popular car on October 1st 2020 in Northumberland.

C2 and C4 owners please get your flashes out and do a couple of selfies to complete the set.

This thread will close for valid entries at Midnight tonight.

couldnt pick it out from the photography!

Whats the blue one?

I photographed a CITROEN C-CROSSER EXCLUSIVE HDI 2007 next to the C5 but was just looking for the C number series :-D .

Looks like the C2 is the only one missing

That would definitely be worth a few points for their rarity value. Just thought the task of getting in a single day original photos taken that day of the C1.C2.C3.C4.C5 would be achievable obviously bonus points for C-Zero, C6, and C8 which are rarely spotted.

Looks like the C2 has beaten us :-D

Sorry about that but I was driving so it was taken on the move with remote shutter release and phone on its edge on dash!!

I don't know for sure, I think it's a C4 3dr hatch.

You've got the C4 nailed Mick Well done. Normally I see plenty C4's out and about but today literally none!
Haven't seen a C2 for ages so not surprised I drew a blank on that. The C5 was a bit of a bonus too

Just looked up Wiki to see what Mark it was its an 05 reg so Gen 1 I presume. Have a look at the places where the C5 is/was manufactured. One of them is particularly notorious now.

i call that a Mk2 but I could be wrong. My thinking is 2001-2004 Mk1, 2005-2007 Mk2, 2007 onwards X7, but I know nothing after that!! :-D
