    Default See the 2016 update - Sydney French Car Day - Silverwater Park, 12 July 2015

    See the update for 2016 on 17 July.

    It's all over for 2015. A great day out and thank to those who came along after dodgy weather in Sydney overnight. We will start planning for the 2016 event.


    BUT please keep the photos of July 2015 coming and uploaded. They look great.

    Do we need to register beforehand or just turn up on the day with the fee? I think the last one I attended which was the 'Allstars Eurofest' I had paid in advance.

    People and their cars can turn up on the day, pay the $10 entry fee into the field. If they want to enter their car in the concourse (there is no additional cost), you get a judging sheet from the club that represents your marque.

    And there is a medallion for the best dressed man and one for best dressed women. Come with your favourite French outfit, best poodle, or Tour de France cycling gear (although could be a bit cold, but will be taken into account).

    Just a reminder - next Sunday (the 12 July) is the NSW All French Car Day at Silverwater.

    Live music, coffee van, food from Breakfast Point Rotary Club, raffles, merchandise, new cars, old cars, vintage cars and of course - your French car

    Come along and have a wander around.

    Here's a map.

    Perhaps we should all wear name tags on the day with our AF names on them!

    And there is a medallion for the best dressed man and one for best dressed women. Come with your favourite French outfit, whitest clipped poodle, or Tour de France cycling gear (although could be a bit cold, but will be taken into account).

    I'll bring the 306 rather than the Lynskey. Not if it's blowing 35-40 knots however!

    OK first round of photos from today. Peugeots... I didn't take one of every car (or even every model) but it is a reasonable cross section. Being a peugeot owner there may be a few more than the other marques to follow I thought I took some 205's too (there were some very tidy ones!) but I only seem to have the racing one... I was sure I took one of RAT 205 but it is nowhere to be found...

    Now for some Renaults. Seems to be about the same number as for Peugeots, with a leaning to the older models... perhaps I'm a closet Renault fan

    Finally a few that didn't fall into the above Big three, except perhaps the restoration project, which I was unsure of the lineage....

    Well it wasn't quite finally. We have some pictures of the Peugeot display (ie the commercial one) and some wider shots showing rows of cars

    Good to meet you today, wintermute!

    That car on the trailer is a Simca Vedette Beaulieu.

    Looks to have been a fantastic day. Wish I was there, but Family duties took over. Next year i'll try much harder.
