    I gather that's one of the cars that operated as a wedding car in Sydney some years ago.

    How many have survived? The Commerciale from that batch is being restored and I've seen or heard of a few Family 9's. I'm sure there was a similar thread on these cars the last time this one came up for sale. Was it a year or two back now?

    A wonderful car. Michael with Froggy name IDEAR is in Castlemaine. We have a Big 15 so we'll catch up with you sometime. There is the odd car event Castlemaine way and ofcourse round Ballarat.

    Congratulations, John Paas.

    Yes there is a growing interest to use club permits - and some clubs are responding to ensure new members are actually becoming involved in club activities and not just using the system.

    One club in Gippsland requires members to attend a certain number of events every year - this is a trend that will grow I think as many clubs are not interested in just being used.

    Yeah i agree, you can't have poeple driving there own cars right ... These will be the same people that tried hard to stop the new permit scheme too I wouldn't bother being a member of a club that tried to have "power" over there membership like this. If the CCCV or CCOCA tried this, that would be the last time I'd ever bother being a member.

    The clubs need to bend over backwards, even if it's just to get new members that don't get to club meetings. The club stays viable while it has members. Unless you want an ever dwindling club with the average age of it's members of 80years ........ Especially clubs like the Citroen car clubs. A lot of members are to regional to go to many events. The younger demographic with kids will struggle to get for example to the other side of melbourne so simply won't bother.

    Clubs need to bend over to make it easy to attract new members, not make it harder.

    That is fine for the members who live locally but an impossible requirement for members who live a distance away from the venues for monthly club runs. I am in that situation. If the CCCV ever took that attitude I would leave! Sadly the local clubs here are not worth a Crumpet! The Warrnambool club does not want to know you if you come from any where other than Warrnambool. Pat and I went to one meeting and were pretty much ignored all night! The Colac club which I actually joined is not much better. Needless to say I am no longer a member! Camperdown has a Restorers Group which is fine if you are interested in stationary engines!

    Half the citroens on here have stationary engines Gerry. He He

    I agree and assume that is why CCCV and CCOCA haven't gone down that path. In CCOCA's case 50% of members are interstate so it is not an issue.

    But all car clubs still need active membership to survive. They can't just be a post box for disinterested members just using them to get a club permit. That was my point.

    Sure it's important to encourage members to participate & in some cases lack of membership participation can lead to the clubs demise. I have been a member of CCOCA for the best part of 30 years & my involvement has been minimal most of the time ( in the earlier times due to work commitments & for the last 16 years due to moving 2000klm away from their home base) If clubs were to consider a " minimum involvement " condition on membership/permit scheme then I'm sure attendance at a " alternative motor car clubs official event" could qualify under the rules. Anyway, unless I'm wrong you can't put a car on say, CCOCA victorian permit scheme when you live 2000 klm in nth nsw. cheers Dave

    Your assumption would be correct as the NSW RTA (now RMS) would not recognise a Victorian club. However you could join a local generic club or you would likely be welcome to join the NSW club and be invited to local events of other car clubs. NSW Club has some non Sydney members who utilise the scheme.

    This is all fine by me , if you don't want to occassionally involve your self in club activities ,even to a minimal exent fine, just pop out and pay pay full rego and you can do what ever you like including getting a RWC from some one whom knows nothing about CitroŽns

    Thankfully my RWC guy comes to your door in a CitroŽn and he used to work on them in the UK! He knows all the keywords like 'spheres', 'LHM', and so on.

    Car club events don't work for me as I work on Sundays.

    All of my cars are on full rego so I can take them wherever I want and when I want to. Being thrifty and owning a Cit' always ends in tears.

    I think if we had the Victorian scheme here in QLD, I'd still stick with what I've got. I'm happy to pay the price for 365 days of absolute freedom

    That's the decision I made in 2008 when I realised I could not drive my D whenever I liked. It also means I can take it for good long test drives not just a limited radius from home. Plus I get to keep its UFO plates!

    I am happy for you that you are able to cope with and justify the expense of four fully registered Citroens. There are some of us on fixed or limited incomes! In this case the Victorian scheme is a godsend. We get to use our cars and no longer have that use restricted to short test drives and occasional club events that may be in range of home for a days outing!

    You'd stick them all on club permits in a heartbeat ..... Being 2nd/3rd/4th cars .... THere is no restrictions on the permits other than you can only use the car 90days a year. I managed 39days of use for the CX last year ... that was using whenever we needed a 2nd car too.

    If it wasn't for the permit scheme, there's not a hope in hell I could afford to register the ID19 or the old pommy car I just put a deposit on that can legally tow 4tons.

    Look at it this way. If I was to fully register the ID19 ... well it simply wouldn't happen I might as just as well get rid of it. You would be looking at $600 a year for registration, maybe $400 a year for insurance, so $1000 a year just to have it parked in the shed, even if it's not driven, this is before any upkeep is performed on it. In victoria I can comprehensively insure if for about $10,000 for $78 a year on a club permit, the 45day permit itself is another $67.00 a year. So for about $140 a year you can enjoy driving the car whenever you feel like it.... Old ID's nearly stop traffic these days when people see them on the road. The bottom line is it's on the road rather than rusting away in a paddock.

    The tow barge... There is no way I'd even have dreamed of looking at it if I had to pay $1000 a year to have it sitting there so it could be used maybe a dozen times a year

    I've never met a car I didn't like! However I'm flat out getting my Packard roadworthy, and the Citroen is due late next week, not to mention that I've run out of shed space (gotta stop buying these long wheelbase models!). Plus the ongoing rust repairs on the 997 Cooper........

    All good fun.

    Thankfully, the wife pays for the Xantia rego as it's her car. When problems with the car arise (however small), then it becomes my car!

    Yes, it's very expensive to register and insure 3 classic cars on full rego. If I was sensible, I'd be offering to sell one as the garage for one of the cars is 80km away from my house!

    OK Shane, are you going to tell us what " the old pommy barge " is? My first guess is a Humber Super Snipe ! May be 50s 4ltr. side valve, around 2 tonne weight ?

    It's easy. There is probably only one brand of vehicle ever made in the UK that has a tow capacity greater than 1000kgs Think of stuck up snobs towing horse floats back in the 70's & 80's in the UK ... And you'll get it in a heartbeat ( and made pretty much unchanged from 1970 -> 1995 ... ). It seems to have even more bodyroll than a 2cv to drive too ... and some weird bloody rear suspension with 3 springs across the axle... that seems to self level when you dump a massively heavy car trailer on the back
