    Icon3 Qld Grand Display French Cars July 8th 2018

    Just a reminder, this event is on Sunday 8th of July - yes this weekend

    Despite our current weather, forecast is good for Sunday. The grounds will probably be soft - please drive carefully onto the display area so as not to cause damage. . .

    Should be a good day with hopefully a good contingent of Peugeot 504s celebrating the 50th anniversary

    Cheers
    Chris

    "Déesse" Roland Barthes, 'Mythologies', 1957

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    The Toyota, had a twin cylinder horizontally opposed 800CC (Citroen?) engine. Interesting little 2 door sports car. It was in amongst the Citroens, so someone from that side of the family may be able to shed more light on the engine/car.

    As for the day, it was a good display and thanks to the organising committee for their efforts. Nice to see so many French cars in one spot.

    How about c'mon callipygous why were you not there??????

    I only took a few pictures of the 504 line up. Was great to see so many 504's.

    There was a cream GLD 504 parked on Logan Road Holland Park (Brisbane) last week that I thought might be at the show, but did not make it.

    Slightly off topic but speaking to the 404 owner who received an award at FCD he mentioned a spareparts supplier in Europe that I forgot to write down. Unfortunately I do not know his name so cannot check the web site. Can anyone help me out?
