Biography:
My wife and I have been associated with the French Marque for decades. She is from a Gippsland farming background that got around in Peugeots and Simcas!
I rallied a Simca Arondde in the 60's - 70's, boy did the Cibie's complain.
We now have a C5 2.0 HDi and 1974 DS 23 to be restored. We also have a Audi 1.8T Quattro; the "Motor Car" has come a long, long way!).
Location:
Essendon
Occupation:
Retired Civil Engineer
Interests:
Aircraft, Motorsports and of course "the Motor car".
Car(s) - Current:
C5 2.0 HDi, DS 23, Audi A4 1.8T Quattro
Car(s) Owned - Previous:
Fiat 1500 Mk 2, Simca Aronde, Mitsubishi Magna, Holden Commodores (Company Cars) and Peugeot 407 in France that had to be handed back upon leaving Europe. It provided living proof that exceeding the speed limit by 5 KPH does not kill you.
