    Annual hunter valley french car day Sunday 28th August 2016-20150314_143219.jpgAnnual hunter valley french car day Sunday 28th August 2016-20150314_143249.jpgAnnual hunter valley french car day Sunday 28th August 2016-20150314_155428.jpgJust a quick update for the Annual HUnter Valley French Car Day Sunday 30th August 2015

    The event has made it to the relative car clubs calendars so hopefully we will see some club plated motors on the day.

    McCarrolls Renault Newcastle will be attending with new models.
    And there will also be New Peugeot and Citroen vehicles on display.

    Already have the trophies taken care of and of course a french inspired Breakfast and Lunch Menu for the day

    Nightingale wines recently hosted lunch for the vintage and veteran sports car club of Sydney have a look at the pix

    Some of you will remember the Hotchkiss from the Silverwater Day last year. Evidently they came up on the wisemans ferry road and the dirt road took out the hotchkiss rear left fender.

    Will keep everyone up to date as we progress toward the event pix attached from 2014

    UPDATE

    Well we have only 3 weeks and 3 days till the Hunter French Car Day Sunday 30th August.
    The long range forecast is looking positive with scattered cloudy periods and 11% chance of rain.

    For those of you looking for more than cars we will have market stalls selling wood crafts, handbags, art works, shawls and throws, plants, and lots more.
    There will be french toast and bacon available from 8.30 am to 11.00 am and a french inspired Lunch menu through to 3pm.
    Bring a picnic or BBQ Lunch if you want and of course your favorite beverage. There will be plenty of tables and chairs for you all to settle into and listen to the live music.

    And of course bring your French motor so we can all admire it.

    The Renault car club of Australia have a drive day organised and McCarrolls Newcastle have a drive day organised, departing from their Wickham show room.

    Looking forward to meeting you all on the 30th

    It was indeed a lovely day, with lots of cars.

    There was a vast field of moderns (I think it's safe to say that Renault won on numbers there) plus a nice collection of classics. There was even a 1935 Rolls.

    For addo's benefit, there were some Slough Tractions here, but I'm not sure if the Dees were made in Slough, France or Australia.

    Another well-executed event by Don and co. Thanks again.
    Regards,

    Simon

    yes indeed folks a very successful event although I dont think our chef would agree as we where filled to the brim with diners. To those that waited a bit long Merci.
    Note to self next year we will have the French toast and bacon at breakfast then move onto a traditional style BBQ with salads and bread. Plus a French inspired menu.

    This year we saw a plethora of classic cars and as SLC206 has stated a huge field of parked moderns from 1990 upwards.
    The Hunter valley was represented with great numbers of Rural Frogers and Im glad to say that is what the event is all about.
    We had visitors from Canberra, Coolah and Brisbane and destinations in between. I dont think I have ever seen so many Peugeot 403 in one place at one time (PIC).
    Mccarroll's Renault drive day brought an influx of clio megane and a new captur and the Renault contingent swept the pool for numbers.
    Thanks to Daniel from Pacific Euro for the Peugeot and Citroen Display and especially for the two prize volumes on Citroen and Peugeot, very special indeed.
    Enjoy these few images and thank you to all that attended. The 2016 HVFCD will be the last Sunday August so put it on your calendar.
    On a personal note Im off to Hawaii for a break and then on to French Polynesia so hopefully Ill get some pictures of some dilapidated frogs.

    Default Hunter french car day

    Who will be attending this event ? Sounds like a great event. Just going through the process of finding accommodation for the week end.

    The journey up should also be good, planning to drive up on the Friday 27th. If anyone is interested in meeting somewhere past Hornsby or where ever is convenient, McDonalds at Thornleigh, let me know as a convoy could be pleasant. No rush.

    Note that this site :

    http://www.huntervalleyvisitorcentre...french-car-day

    has not been updated for this year's event, still showing last year's date.

    Who do you have to sleep with to get it changed?

    Just a quick update on the Hunter Valley French Car Day for 2016. Unfortunately the viva Band are not available and Nigel whom a lot of you will be familiar with, will be bringing his trio along to brighten the experience.
    Trophies are onsite and we are only three weeks and a bit out. Looking forward to seeing you all on the day
