    Thanks for that. Found it on French Car Festival. Would have thought it would have been advertised on aussiefrogs but perhaps I missed it.

    Hope to see plenty of froggy cars out on Sunday. Forecast is for late showers with a top of 30 - let's hope they hold off until late afternoon.

    Wow, you had a Renault 4 turn up .... One of them was my first ever car. I can't believe there is still that many running driving R16's on the road in the whole of Australian!

    Who won all the trophies on offer? I know Rob Sealey won the trophy for best sporting Renault with his R5T2.

    A few shots of cars from the Auto Paris display at the FCD 2014
    https://www.facebook.com/autoparis

    Images have been thin on the ground, finding good overall images on the victorian french car day 2014...

    I like the R16's... great they are coming back with owners restoring them in good numbers...
    also was that a citroen DS Ute in one of the images, crazy and awesome...

    I only found out about this today, from the owner of the red 205 pictured above. BUGGER!! I had been checking the boards and Google for info on this event but couldn't see anything and assumed it mustn't be annual or that it travels around the country. Guess I searched too early. Oh well, always next year

    Thanks for the snaps, Balwyn is always so well supported! The veteran Renault looks cute and in good nick. All we need now is some more Citroen images from the day..

    Here are some more photos of the Festival. Great day and weather. Lucky I returned to Canberra late Sunday as Melbourne was belted by a thunderstorm the next day.
