    Icon2 2012 All French car day, Sydney, at Silverwater Park

    It's on again, as per usual. The all French car day at Silverwater Park on Sunday, 15 July 2012. The same glorious venue, with food, good company and lots of delicious cars to view and talk with their owners. $10 per car entry that goes towards meeting the cost of the hire fee for the park and the public address system. Trade displays are welcome, contact Ross Berghofer (0409 504 551) to let him know.
    Citroen, Simca, Renaut, Peugeot and any other French marques are welcome. Some golden oldie cars would be welcome, too. This is Sydney's concourse d'elegance for our beloved French marques. No appointment necessary, just turn up on the day, from about 9:30 am to 3:00 pm.
    Silverwater Park is on the south western corner of the southern approach ramp to Silverwater Bridge.

    I hope the organisers note recent grumblings about the Canberra event and ensure there is:

    1. Superior signage and a GPS location offered in advance
    2. Clarity of times (eg; arrive by, judging completed by, awards at...)

    Also, I trust they don't forget to mention 605s this year.

    Not all. A decent amount, but not all.

    I'd hold it at Munghorn Gap lookout, just so everyone had to drive a bit for once.

    Those with the Google Maps App can cut and paste the following coordinates into the search bar and select the Navigation option for the actual venue (not Munghorn Gap!):

    Default Setting up a Trade Stand at the AFCD

    With such a high concentration of Pugs and Cits attending i think i will setup a trade stand for tweed coats, bowls hats and Sound Of Music soundtracks (on vinyl ofcourse).

    How could i lose?

    It's Renault all the way this year!

    PS. Jo Proffi made me send this at gun point.

    With the BX currently purring like a kitten , fingers crossed. If I can juggle family commitments, I will make the trip down.

    I am gutted that now I'm in the market for a gallic fling, I can't make this meet.

    Could anyone that's going PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let the owners of the 205 GTI's that turn up know that I am in the market to buy.

    I've got a 'wanted' in the classifieds but would really appreciate it if someone can wander over to the 205's and just spread the word.

    Merci, mon amis

    LOL, I was only telling my wife yesterday that I wanted a Renault keyring (when offered one with my name on it from the Info Centre Shop at Echo Point) now that I had a Renault (as opposed to her Renault).... and I have the chance to obtain one this weekend! Hope to be there around lunch-ish after church.

    On a bright note, the forecast at this stage is "Mostly sunny. Winds westerly 15 to 25 km/h."

    Hope to see you all there in whatever French car you choose to bring.

    Those without one are, of course, welcome to peruse the ones that are there.
    Regards,

    Simon

    You missed a nice event today, rambo.
    It is always good to meet new faces, and catch up with the familiar ones.

    Was it my imagination or was the vibe more relaxed this year?


    Anyway, a good day and a credit to the organisers.

    First time at a French car show, spotted a few familiar cars, made some new acquaintances lol
    The wrong oil is better than no oil at all.
