    Default Official 2011 Perth French Car Festival thread

    Hi all, things are well underway to make this years event bigger and better than before. Here is the official flyer. If you can think of anywhere that it should be stuck around town go for it. The more people we get the merrier. Perhaps you live near a French Restaurant or French language school etc etc.

    Email me if you need a pdf version.



    If admin can make this thread a sticky that would be greatly appreciated

    PDF for me too please, so I can decorate a few notice boards, etc (will pm).

    Poor timing for the event though - We'll be coming back from Rotto on the day so will only just be able to check out the show if we leave in the morning.

    That's assuming I can convince the troops to take the detour on the way home.

    Hi all, bit of an update. All the organising is in place and from what I have been hearing we are going to see some new & very interesting cars this year. We have confirmed at least one Bugatti will definitely be on display with other TBC.

    Hi Justin, flyer looks fantastic... Well done, pity I won't be able to attend this years, as I will be 'hot-footing' the Clio Gordini RS around France on French car day... Wanna swap places???

    I shall have my recently acquired 'Familiale' there and it is far from concours

    Bring it along. Even works in progress are fine. I've taken the C-matic with odd coloured panels (due to rust and repaint repairs a panel at a time) along. If you lift the bonnet people won't even notice the exterior!

    erv504,
    Wot he said.

    My '79 504 should be there. Has lost a bit of its "OOH" factor over the years. Now fast approaching the "blind man on a galloping horse" inspection criteria.

    Will dust off and bring along the 14" French Dunlop 504 mags I have for a reasonable $100 for 4.

    I've taken my 505 that's in rather less than average condition for the last few years and no one's complained.

    This time I'l be there with my much worse condition 403

    Mind you, one day it'd be nice to not have the worst condition car at a show.

    Sideways,
    It will be good to see an "As Found" 403. You've got it mobile then?
    Psst, Throw in those special inlet manifolds, should create some interest.

    Deltone,
    Don't lose any sleep over gezza's new aquisition. Unless it's got wings and flys it will blend in with everything else. c-:

    No, but I got the head back from the machinist and have been waiting for a nice day (somewhat like today) to put it back on. She'l be going by then for sure, I get my Ps in 2 weeks and I need a running registered car to run around in!

    Dual carb manifold will be going back on for sure, I might even rig it as dual carbs.

    Thanks

    Hi all, here is a link to some more info on the aircraft fly in which is on the same day and will be our neighbour. http://www.showmeperth.com.au/event/langley-park-fly

    This should help us get more people along to the event and really add to the atmosphere on the day.

    I can also confirm that amongst many new rare cars on the day we have confirmed the attendance of a Bugatti which is great.

    Not long now, see you all there!

    Hi Serge, welcome to the forum (and 2CV ownership!) You are certainly most welcome to come along on the day. Entry is free and ALL are welcome. All you need to do is turn up between 8:30 and 9:30 for a 10am start. Should be a great day. Look forward to seeing your 2CV.

    You might want to check out www.2cv.com.au also and www.citroenwa.com if you haven't already.

    Cheers,

    Justin.

    Bumpity bump! One more sleep people! Come one, come all!!

    Get that Frog you own down there no matter the condition or model, also don't be afraid to come for a shorter period. We are not that strict on cars coming and going.

    Mostly though, I cant say this enough......



    THE MORE THE MERRIER!!!!
