Just got back myself - great day out, and good to be back in France. With hindsight if I'd have known I'd be taking my car I'd have done some preparation on it beforehand. Well, I'd have put some more CDs in, and given it a wash...

Am now ready for bed, so uploading photos can wait 'till the morning!

Arrived!

Blue seems a popular Mk1 colour

No, the smoke isn't Timex, it's the Ourane behind

Mark and Hilary's valvers find some friends too

Image

There it is, next to Mat's estate. As well as the one in the collection, there were only 3 estates there, and all were british!

Image

Image

14RE

Image

I believe this is Xemes lovely car

Image

The digit with the bumper strips from the rear - not convinced about them myself

Image

Love these colours!

What a great day, shame we couldnt stay longer, being up for 40 hours without sleep really knocked me sideways but it was worth it, thanks to Chris (Xemes) who made us all so welcome and organised it.

See you at the 40th anniversary??

What an exhausting day, but well worth it. Many, many thanks to Chris (Xemes) and Mark Smith - not to mention the host with the most: Sandre - for making it possible for me to attend.

Have some pics... here are a few, but much of the Conservatoire was covered in pics from last time and the dozens likely to exist from this one...

Some reading matter was obtained :)
