Salut

I should have posted the dates before it took place (!) but having gone for the second time, I don't think I'll go again. It was practically every car's birthday - Spit', Merc something or other, Renault whatevers, etc. The Elan 50th went practically unnoticed except for a stand of four cars instead of the usual one. Here they are:

Roland's CN +2:

His old S4 converted to 26R spec:

A nice S4 coup?:


JPS.jpg and
A recently imported JPS (sorry about the photo):


11.jpg and
And a nice looking Eleven on a vendors stand:


Otherwise most of the stalls were selling stuff for 2CVs, DSs and other French oddities. Triumph lovers were well catered for and the infamous guy with his spark-increasing-con-lead was there in his trailer.

No bargains to be had - the French are probably responsible for the silly prices on eBay.

You didn't miss much.

Neat to see the 11 copy. My dad built it
over the last few years and just sold it
to someone in France. It's sale is financing
an MGB GT V8 build
