    Default Apart from Cits; who else is going?

    I don't know how many of the others apart from Cit owners are aware of the Cit-In 2004 at Canberra.

    Might be a good chance to put names to faces & catch up with old aquantainces.
    I was thinking about it until yesterday, but our local friendly Cyclonic storm has put paid to any plans I might have over Easter.

    Well of course UFO and Mrs UFO will be there. BOTH Cits this year - XM and D Special - although the XM will be making irregular appearance as it will also be in Cooma for a High School Reunion.

    I am a bit surprised at the lack of response from the Pug & Reno owners.
    What is it about Cits & their owners that they seem to go on long trips like as in the Raids, Cit-ins etc yet everyone reckons they're a "radical" or "Quirky" car plagued with unreliability, yet it seems that Pug drivers never seem to want to venture more than 10 klms from home??

    Hi Alan,

    think about it though, would you bother to drive to a reno or poogoe meeting any distance away I probably wouldn't bother.

    Now now cyclops .

    I'm heading up to the Pug Easter pageant at Lismore, which is a bloody long way. It's also going to be our first family holiday, only I'm not sure which car we're going to take.
    My in-law's are taking their 404 ute up there as well and Graham Wallis is going as well.
    BTW I did put a thread on the pug forum the other day about the pageant, but I spose reading other forums means reading about something apart from quirky upsy/downsy cars.

    There's about 105 entrants for the Pug pageant as well.

    Bathurst to Lismore a long way! ppphhhttthhhh!!!!!!!!

    Here's some history for yuz:

    Cit In 2003 - Maleny Qld, whole trip over 5000km in the XM (went north to T'ville etc after Easter) Also, the longest distance travelled award for this Cit In went to a couple with a CX 2400 C Matic from Geraldton WA and two 2CVs came from Perth in convoy across the desert via who knows where.
    Cit In 2002 - Richmond Tassie - About 3500km in the D Special
    Cit In 2001 - Barossa Valley SA - About 5000km in the D Special with return home via Great Ocean Road
    Cit In 2000 - Jindabyne - about another 5000km in the D Special as we went to Clare Valley etc after Easter

    Oh, and in between 2000 and 2001 Cit Ins we took the D Special to Qld (where I first met Alan) and did about 5500km - just for a holiday.

    Now them's some long ways

    Apart from the Lismore trip; how far is Sydney from Canberra?
    Surely not all Pug owners are going to Lismore?
    Anyway, it gives the A/F members a chance to catch up with fellow A/Fers who will be down for the do, so it's more than a paroachial thing isn't it?
    Plenty of other froggers turned up to Maleney as you well know.

    Sydney to Canberra is about 300km, depending from where you start in Sydney (my place just north of CBD)

    Hmm... where to go for Easter... Lismore or Canberra

    Of course, assuing I don't have to work over easter

    Hi Alan,

    sure if there was a french car club meeting near me I'd go, but would you drive interstate to see some poogoes what about reno's

    It's nothing to do with being a unicorn, I just couldn't see it happening (well not unless SWMBO loves spending time at car gatherings ).

    seeya,

    One day I WILL get my CX running again. I hope ...

    What made you think I was talking Interstate?
    There's a heap of owners of the other two marques within a couple of hours drive who could easily do it as a day run, they don't have to do it as a complete Easter thing; just slip over for the day like I did at Maleny.
    Also, how many of the others are already in Canberra?
    That's what I meant!!

    BTW: What are you doing !!!!! Advertising your CX for sale is crazy talk

    The answer is simple, hook that caravan of yours to it's towbar and bring it down to Canberra at easter (and chuck a 4sale sign in it's window).

    seeya,
    Shane L.
    PS: If you have advertised it to sell as SWMBO is getting really p!$$ed you just advertise 'em for $10,000grand or something stupid. After all, you just can't sell these citroens
