    Default for the orange peelers ...

    for those of us who remain sans citroen and will be mere observers, what will be the best viewing/enquiring/chatting times?

    LOCAM,

    I presume you won't be in Laos over Easter but will be in Dubbo.

    Looking at the Program, the Saturday morning car display would be a good opportunity for viewing/enquiring/chatting, and you could certainly find most of us at the Zoo on Sunday and some of us competeing in the novelty events that afternoon in our Cits.

    For more opportunities, you would need to join in with the meals and events. I'm sure if you asked around a bit, someone would offer you a lift for the observation run on Sat afternoon.

    Might see you there - look for a silver Xantia wagon with QLD plates.

    Thanks, yes will be in Australia in April and more specifically at Harden with in-laws over Easter, which begs the question of a day trip to Dubbo. So trying to work out best day and times etc ...

    One of these days will again have a Cit to turn up in ...

    C'mon we know you want to bring a CX wagon ......... Just think of all the extra stuff you could fit in to bring with you .... Lots of spare parts .... An air-conditioner for the back window .....

    Didn't you know ... CX's don't break down ... They just get more and more tired as they age without any real upkeep... Certainly they don't break down as such though

    Best chance would be Saturday morning at Ollie Robbins Oval near the centre of Dubbo. Show and Shine there. After lunch there will be various options all of which include vacating the grounds by about 1pm. There will be an obs run, various tours etc.

    BTW - there will be no car use related novelty events at Cit In. Something to do with insurance as has been the case for the past few years.

    Awww UFO,

    If we could arrange some for Maleny in 2003, surely our expert NSW counterparts could sort their way through the insurance issues for Dubbo.

    So who's going to Cit In???

    I know quite a few AF'ers have a fleet of cars to choose from. So, what will you be driving???

    This'll be my first Cit In. I only have one Citroen - so I guess that means I'll be in the DS.

    The car has already been serviced and is ready to roll.

    Bring it ON!!!
    Cheers,
    Michael

    Well I'm going, and most of the mileage will be done in a boeing 747/400.
    Only the last part "might" be in a citroen.....if I'm lucky

    Hi Citroen aficionados!
    It's getting close now and there is a lot that I'd like to do with the CX to get her going smoothly and looking a little spiffy, but she is quite nice especially having moved her from the cosy garage in Lismore to Nimbin where she parks on the muddy grass and is not always polished and gleaming on the daily run to Lisvegas and back, I would have to be the most composed vehicle on one of the most twisty and unevenly rutted roads around.
    I haven't got a Show and Shine cover girl but the paint was redone on the cheap a couple of years ago and shines up well. The main blemish is a small ding to the front bumper from someone reversing into me in Jindabyne one frosty morning....they didn't leave a note (surprise) and they being neighbors in the same block, I was on the look for freshly damaged cars. I had my suspicions that it would have to be a ute or 4wd by the shape and location of the dent. When I spotted the culprit, a Crummydoor ute with the rear corner smashed in really badly, I felt a little less pissed off.
    The interior has the standard damage to the front door trims and the rear seat velour is badly ripped adjacent to the parcel shelf. There are other small things, but overall looks good which leaves me to work on mechanicals; replace left hand driveshaft, redo return line junction at steering rack which was a first attempt and is leaking again (will use smaller diameter hose and the same clamps as I used for the later repair which was successful), drain Dextron out of system and replace with LHM also bleeding air from brakes, dismantling & cleaning height correctors and lowering height, and searching for an instrument panel.
    Michael's DS looks stunning and I will be lining up for a ride in it or any DS if anybody so obliges. It will be fascinating to see so many Citroens in one spot so I am really looking forward to it and the inevitable hyperventillation that goes when seeing any other Citroen, times that by 100! See you all there.
    Andy

    Hi Andy

    It doesn't matter a stuff what your car looks like (Hey, mine will probably be half painted & in a million bits ). You gotta come along and have some fun. Smiffy is going to shout us all heaps of beer (or stout if it's cold ).

    I don't think the 16v is going to be ready The block, sump, liners and cam are in the post on their way to Sydney today.

    It might have to be a 'Pug In'

    NO, NO, NO, YOU ARE

    After all, it was a total nightmare driving upto London in really thick fog, (that's 400km round trip) to get you that exhaust for your CX!!!

    What ??

    So how are Bob and I going to do our duelin' DS19s thing without a motorkhana? One of my best memories of Maleny is him and me trying to beat each other's times in the various motorkhana events. I'm the one with the medal and I bet he's itching to take it from me.

    If you can't make it happen we might just have to get a few witches hats and find a quiet paddock on our own.

    Hey Andy, you're more than welcome for a ride in my D! But don't be mislead by the pix. The car is definitely not a concours winner by any means - which is good 'cos it means I can use it without getting (too) stressed by it getting dirty.

    Hmmm... sounds like there'll be plenty of free beer flowing courtesy of Shane and Smiffy.
    Cheers,
    Michael

    Alright free beer ....thanks John and Shane, I'll pack a case of Coopers as well. And I was thinking that there'd only be red wine and rare French cheeses. Thanks Michael, I'll look forward to a ride in the D, it looks really schmick in the photos so you must be stoked to find such a beauty.
    Pity about the absence of the Motorkana events.....as a trade off there may be Cits seen 'speeding up' for any speedhumps around town to show off!
    Andy.
