    Redex cars in Melbourne

    Quoted from Torque magazine.

    Friday July 18
    The cars in the Redex Rerun field will assemble at Balwyn Park (opposite Regans in Whitehorse Road, Balwyn) from about 8am on July 18.

    There will be a display of new Peugeots (from Regans) and you are invited to bring along your pride and joy as well.

    The Redex truck will be there, and Peugeot will have merchandise for sale too.

    Come along and show your support.

    That sounds cool.

    Will the cars be comming through Sydney at all? and if so I wonder if they will assemble for a day as they are going to in Melbourne...?

    May see if I can look it up on Peugeot's site or google.

    HRM....I just found the Itinerary:

    Sunday, 20 July 2003 * CANBERRA TO SYDNEY

    9-00 to 10-30 Time Control at Old Parliament House (French Car Day near OPH!) Old Parliament House, Canberra

    from 10-30 Travel to 1953 'Horror Stretch' Marulan, near Goulburn
    from 14-00 Travel to Sydney *

    14-00 to 17-00 Publicity Finish at Parramatta Park Parramatta Park

    It sounds like this is a public event, as in I *think* we can bring our own pugs to Parramatta Park and display them....
    Any froggies interested?

    Speaking of French Car Days, how come most states in Aus are having them and we aren't having one here in Melbourne or have we already had one?

    We had our French Car Day back in February.

    I think we're the only one that managed the Renault Vel Satis :p

    I know that Doug Brockfield used to own the 106, but I don't know if he has sold it or not. Anyway, it has an Aussiefrogs sticker on it, and AFAIK Doug isn't a frogger, but maybe he is...
