    We rode on the winds of the rising storm,
    We ran to the sounds of thunder.
    We danced among the lightning bolts,
    and tore the R10's assfromunder.

    Oui... I shall be attending (read with a French accent)...

    A quick question (or a few), is there a fee to display your car? Nick, are you displaying yours?

    Or is the day organised so anyone who has a Frog can park together with all the other Frogs who are there and be a part of the display?

    Richard, that is a very good question. I assumed anyone could just park their car with similar models (I think they are going in order of make and within that by time period). I am certain there is a small entry fee, but as I have not attended any recent PCCV meeting I do not know.

    I guess we'll find out on the day

    $5 per car entry, or if making multiple entries talk to Dave C prior to negotiate a fee.
    Usually laid out in Makes and age order.
    And yes my R10 BEAST will be there, on a trailor though not running yet.

    cheers! Damien

    Fellow Froggers,
    If you intend to display your car, please be at Essendon before 10-15am so that we can get the cars positioned, before opening the show.

    Are there any requirements in regard to the condition of the cars to have them on display? My car is in pretty good condition, but it isn't like it has had a respray or anything like that.

    cheers.

    Not really NJM, if its got 4 wheels and an engine it qualifies. The more the merrier.

    OK, I'll try and answer a few questions.

    If it's French it's welcome, age and condition are not an issue, it's a display of French vehicles and not a concourse, (although PCCV are holding there own concourse on the day so you will get to see the best Pugs Victoria has to offer). There will be prizes awarded for best car of each decade, plus best Renault Peugeot and Citroen, plus best of show. RCCV have a special treat, we're holding a raffle and the prize is a must for any Renault fan, especially Gordini fans

    Cost is $5 per car, but car club members who wish to display more than 2 cars can register them with me and pay $10 to bring in as many as they like,(as long as they are the owner and I know the rego numbers)

    Cars will be displayed in decade order and not by make; eg. all 50's cars will be together, all 60's and so on, the idea is to show what French vehicles were available during the 50's/60's etc.
    Previous AFD's have shown this works because it also gets owners of different makes talking to each other. In past years when cars have been displayed in makes we end up with one make not talking to other makes and it ends up being 3 separate car shows, (boring if you ask me).

    To find Essendon Airport, Melways map 16 C8.

    And finally, the secret Renault. No Simon it's not the white Traffic van.
    NOW EVERYONE, STOP ASKING ME, I AINT SAYING NOTHING.

    David,

    I have talked to Vicroads and got permission to put some signs up.

    I will put one at the "airports" exit (both east and west)

    one at the matthews avenue exit,

    and one at the top of the matthews ave exit ramp.

    All signs just say "FRENCH CAR SHOW -->" I'm sure people will get the point.

    I'll put them up on Saturday evening.

    Thanks Richard that sounds great, send the bill to RCCV. Also, as you come in the main drag to the airport from the freeway, the airport administation building is on the right and the carpark entrance is right next to it, (just before Chris and Maries Plant Farm), a sign there would be great.

    I should be able to make it. Do we have to register/pay in advance, or can we show up and do that on the day?

    Will there be anyone from the PCCV there to join up? I've been meaning to do so for the past 18 months ..

    You can pay on the day.

    Yes, even though RCCV is organising the day, someone from the PCCV will be able to help you,
