    Default 205 Swap Meet

    Just a thought.

    Has there ever been an organised swap meet (possibly Melbourne area) through the forum?

    Or say...a once a month get together to discuss 205's (or anything of interest) and share a bit of knowledge?

    I supposed that's what the clubs for...but i was thinking maybe a little more specific.

    Would it be plausible? Or a straight up silly idea?

    Again...just i thought.

    Great idea but I think the model is to few and far between. I'd love to put together a track day for the Queensland guys but I only know of 3 - 4 205's in the SE Queensland corner.

    Bit of a bummer for any kind of get togethers.
    ....now watch a Peugeot turn into a corner!

    I guess its wishful thinking that made me pose the question of whether it were possible. But I'd like to think it would be an open invitation to anyone with a pug.

    Ill drive to brissy!

    Hey Pug-life.
    I can understand where you are coming from, as it would be great to have that wealth of 205 experience available to help for those niggling jobs, and to catch up on all things 205.

    Biggest problem is that most 205 owners have other cars too, and if they joined a specific club for every car, most would need to quit their day job!

    Why not just join the Peugeot Car Club? There will be other 205 owners in the PCCV as well as those who are knowledgable about them.

    I agree on the swap meet thing too. If we can organise ( see meets thread ) the Australia wide meet would be a start!!

    I think there are little gatherings between cities everynow and then. Perhaps start with that and see how you get on!

    The trouble is this forum is like a big swap meet. Swap meets were big before the internet. You could look for parts and have social interaction. Now we all just stay at home, hiding behind a phony forum name & avatar, and get parts posted/delivered by couriers. A step forward?

    I'm down for a 205 get together in Melbourne.
    I'm sure there are a few others that would be keen too.

    I'm down for a 205 meet in Perth.

    Look at it this way: you get to drive your favorite cars further.

    I can understand if others a skeptical about a '205' swap meet (even though that would be ideal) but even an 'Aussie frogs' swap meet could/would more appropriate.

    Like peter said, "You could look for parts and have social interaction", was exactly what i was thinking. Now i know Jezwillow had a few things to clear from his garage and it could be a good opportunity to see all the great things he has to offer.
    (named again Jez sorry)

    Often there's threads that go up trying to offload parts & often they get missed. I guess Im just saying that you can see things in real time, and share a few stories.

    Lastly...I was thinking maybe Albury/wadonga. Somewhat central between NSW and VIC forum members.

    still...just an idea.

    Do like the idea, and any time in august would be great for me, just need to wait for it to be old enough for club rego.

    Also I have joined PCCV, which is a great resource and meet tool.
