    I should have the Baccara there. Hopefully the only other one known to be in Oz at the moment will be there too I hear it lives very close to Canberra!

    Dont think the Megane is special enough to bring, but I have my 1970's Peugeot 10speed racer Luckily its only a couple of kms from my place!

    So is it on Saturday the 2nd, or Sunday the 3rd?

    Here are some photos of the day. The first shows Rob Wooley's immaculate REnault AX 1909, the second is Luke Drady's R25 Baccara which won best Renault, the 4th photo is Gerry Carson's Light 15 which tied for best French Car, the 5th photo is Alistair Browne's misty green R16 complete with French onions, the 6th photo is my Alpine GTA stranded in the middle of the display for reasons outlined elsewhere, the 7th and 10th photos are Paul James SM Citroen which won best Citroen and best French Car (tied with Gerry but decided with a toss of a coin), the 8th is yours truly with the Ambassador for France, Stephane Romatet, who presented the prizes and the Ambassador's prize of two bottles of French wine (won by Paul James). Great day had by all with 29 cars present which is a bit down on previous years. My GTA did start at the end of the day and eventually made it home.

    Which car was yours? I only took 14 photos of which 11 are posted. The others were the Pug 203, another of Alistair's R16 and a shot of the engine bay of the SM Citroen. Perhaps Lisa (reweave) might have taken one and ail ask her after your response.

    The white BX Estate parked next to the SM you can see my doors in the SM's image..

    Was Lisa the lady with the yellow Renault running things? after driving up from Melbourne that morning she was one of only two people to come up to us and say hello, and we said hello to a few others, including the lovely gentleman with the 2CV who took us for a spin around the block..

    Lisa is the one with the yellow R1.4 wagon helping me run the show. I did not specifically take a photo of your car but will check whether Lisa did.

    I've looked through my photos and only one with a glimpse of your car. Will post it here if I can find the appropriate button.Canberra French Car day 3 November 2012-img_2538.jpg
