Loving everyone's pics, I should have taken some instead of trying (and failing) to conserve phone battery. Oh well, it's easy enough to steal 'em. *upgrades avatar* thanks Ian :D

A few more pics…

The wonderful 2CV engined mini version of the H van from Citroen's Conservatoire

One of the two fabulous Citroen GS Birotor – the engine is buried amongst the various pipework



Image

Rather nicely done up GS in rally trim – rather fancy something like that myself…



Image

And if I had a limitless budget a DB Panhard might be very high on my list

I just love the sculptured lines of this Panhard motor

Nice to meet you all, and finally put some names to faces!

The crazy LED hat man from Finland had to be the best moment for me...

Each to their own, not my choice of course and ruins your rearward vision but are a godsend if you have tailbalzer and very useful for resting a cuppa on!.

I would never remove one that was factory fitted but prefer the lines of the BX without it.

Saw this lovely 16v on the way back to the campsite on Sunday, looked stunning so had to jump out and get a pic or two, looks like it has had a full re-spray, anyones on here ?

Tailblazers don't always work with those rear lights though. I think that looks quite smart. On the spoiler debate, I like all three but would probably vote Valver Ph2/Hurricane spoiler as my favourite, though I'm very keen on no-spoiler too.

Thats ACE! STill prefer the black door surrounds but for a 1.4 thats a job well done!

A bit cheeky to fit a 16v badge, wonder what the Insurance man would say!

Its has a sunroof deflector which is odd as you couldnt have a factory fitted roof on a ST Tropez just a pop up one.

Arse.

Waste of effort. Nicely done... but c'mon... why not a St. Tropez with a 16v set up ;)

1360 or not, that looks lovely!
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...
