/\ Yep, have a good one chaps. Next one may be in N. Europe? Then that's one I should do instead. I should have a BX/Citroen by then. :)

Lovely car and excellent job you've done.

Second (and last day for me) of the show and today was much better - the attendance really is getting high now and some sight. Much more people there and I can only imagine what it'll be like in the remaining two days what with it being the weekend too. Back home from Yorkshire now and good to meet up with old friends and make new ones. Roll on CX, XM and Xantia Rally.

Excellent pics and the weather looks fine too - that certainly makes a huge difference. Anyone get anything of interest out of the autojumble area?

Home and knackered, best £50 I ever spent, even asides the comical glasses wearer tan lines!

DTR ran great, a few surges on the way home after the fuel filter change (thanks Vanny!), but overall shes a diamond.

BX parts were a little disappointing.....I think Paul296 is still searching for all those new tailblazers hiddens under a pile of DS bits

I counted over 30 BX's which was rather poor, oh look there goes another black traction and wacky painted 2CV.......................

Great time, and as a bonus I still have some eyebrows left after the BBQ incident! We had a BX convoy round the site

Image

Image

I'd even washed the car prior to arriving, and Tim took a clay bar and polish (thanks) to it to get it looking pretty good for the mileage!

Image

A shame about the suspension problems, sorry if I seemed a bit cheesed off with anybody towards the end, but it was (or should have been!) directed towards the car.

Very glad you got home safely Mat :D ,

GB has just handed over the Olympics to Rio, and the ICCCR 2016 goes to The Netherlands.

I am going to the Netherlands ICCCR!
- had a really brilliant weekend - met up with old friends, made new friends and got to know current friends better, and the weather was great, so no mud-wrestling was possible (sorry Paul!)

See some of you again soon - pics to follow.....

Too tired to be especially coherent, but ..that_ also, except I mud-wrestled every time I washed my hands/showered, the water was distinctly BROWN owing to high iron content. Not sure what I expected except that it would be good, but the whole weekend exceeded expectations, I had a wonderful time, thank you all.

Men of the weekend: Mark for providing BX HQ, Ian for the parade idea (THE high point of the proceedings!) and Tim for the awning, very necessary on the sunny days.

I'm sure there'll be "oh, yeah, do you remember the French guy talking (for no apparent reason) about 'Ecosse' and blowjobs, and how we all went 'WTF?' until we worked out he meant bagpipes. That was funny." recollections for weeks!

Really lovely to see everyone, catch up with some of you again at one or more of Ludlow/CXM soon :)
