    Citroens lost in fires

    The ABC news last night showed some of the damage to property in the Blue Mountains and they showed a bunhc of Citroens that were lost in the fires. Was quite a sereal shot with burnt out DS all over the place. Would be a great topic for a photography shoot, but is sad at the same time to see all these beautiful cars destroyed.

    Is the owner of that property on this forum? I recall looking at a Citroen owner site who looked like he lived in the mountains and owned a bunch of cars...if so, I'm deeply sorry for your loss.

    Talking to someone up here who thinks it could be Les Francis.
    Tells me that if it's any consolation that these cars would have been unrestored ones which he parked under trees. It could have been worse as he apparently has some restored and good lookers which he shifted to the Hunter Valley some time ago.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    oh that's a relief. Would've been a tradegy if we lost some good condition Citroens there. I mean it's bad enough that people lost their homes, but to lose some Citroens! That's a tradegy

    Apparently, the 80 something year old bloke who died when trapped by the bushfire, in his caravan, had a yard full of cars, according to media reports.

    Similar thing happened in fires at Menai about twenty years ago...

    An old bloke was pushing his cars out of the shed and died of a heart attack.

    The cars were only Wolseley 24/80s, though.

    As for Citroens in fires, the ID with the fibreglass roof would be asking for trouble, wouldn't it?
