    Default Citroens on display

    Having spent last Easter at the Cit-in in Stanthorpe I wasn't game enough to be away again so unfortunately missed Cit-in 2012 at Busselton. I briefly toyed with the idea of putting in an appearance for a day but the ten hour return trip put me off that. Our local Machinery Restoration Group has a display on Easter Saturday so I made the effort to get two of my cars there for the day.

    With the other cars on display being a 1953 Austin, a 1928 "A" model Ford (whose owner is 91 and still driving the car - having owned it for sixty eight years) and a Kingswood I felt that I at least added a touch of class to the day.

    "Queeny" made her first public appearance here in WA and as the photo shows she's not too bad from a distance.

    Thanks Donat. I'm slowly getting bits and pieces done. Having a good base to start on was a help. I've managed to buy a pair of NOS rear lights from the UK and they are waiting for me in Eire the next time I'm there - I'm taking a big suitcase (empty of course) to bring back some of my acquisitions. It is surprising how $50 here and $75 there quickly adds up though.

    Major work still needed includes re-upholstery, external paint professionally finished, new rub strips and gutter mouldings as well as the wheel arch lining in the rear being replaced.

    If we win Lotto then they'll happen a lot faster!

    Wonderful to recall that the A35 was a contemporary of the DS19 and the A30 a contemporary of the Traction and the 2CV. At least I think the A35 went as far as the late 1950s.

    Congratulations. At least you managed to post a photo of a Citroen or two on display at an event in WA.

    Your cars are looking good.
