Le Weekend French Festival at Cygnet, February

John Brennan, 4 Apr 2016

These photos are from John Brennan, and had been hanging around in the Editor's In-box for a while, so apologies to John for the tardy posting.

The photos show Chris Minehan hamming it up, French Style, near a Pug, and another of a nice Panhard. It was a good day at Le Weekend, Cygnet.

Bauke's Thing

Bauke Meijer, 2 Mar 2016

Whatever that is, it seems he's doing it again, only this time it's not a D, so he can tell you in his own words.

Picked up this lovely B14 1927 model last weekend. It’s been in a museum for 3 years, then sat in the owner's shed for a bit over 2, with birds and rats and possums doing their dirty work on and in it.  They have chewed holes in one ...

Mystery Solved

Bruce Culliford, 24 Feb 2016

Towards the end of 2013 it was reported that a dark green Xantia had been seen in North Hobart with a Peugeot badge covering the bonnet chevrons which was thought to be very unusual.

(I have previously seen a maroon C5 with the chevrons on the boot upside down.)

Cheryl & I attended Le Weekend at Cygnet on Sunday 14th February and after she had gone for a walk to take in the sights came back enthusing about a dark green Xantia she’d ...

Another D Finds a New Home

Chris Minehan, 11 Feb 2016

Yet again Bauke has been busy...

His broken leg hasn’t seemed to affect the flow of blood to his brain. And, I purchased another D for my wife (really, I’m the perfect husband aren’t I?).  It’s a 1974 DS23 5 speed with air.  Now these two topics actually relate and you’ll see me get ...

XANTIA MAINTENANCE

Bruce Culliford, 29 Jan 2016

Treasurer Bruce has recorded his Xantia maintenance revelations and travails, for posterity.

For quite some time the slide switch for the heater/air conditioning fan on my Xantia CT Turbo was "cactus" & I also felt that the spheres needed re-gassing so when the opportunity arrived I took a drive up to Bauke's in North Motten.

During the week, my job ...

One Street, Two Classic Citro├źns

Rob Allen, 8 Jan 2016

This isn't a sight you'd expect to see very often, even in the 1970s.

...at least, not in Hobart, or possibly anywhere in Australia more than 200 metres from a Citroën garage.

But, there they were, in Goulburn Street, on a sunny Friday afternoon in Hobart.

I'm not sure whose the DS23 is, but the Deux Chevaux belonged to Peter Larkey recently (and ...
