[quote="citroenxm" BX turnout was impressive..[/quote]
I thought it was just me noticed that. A good showing.

It's true that the XM turnout was rather low. I didn't get time to go anywhere but the XM line. :roll:

p.s. How's Ray's thumb... :lol:

BX turnout was impressive..
...............and?
Citroen meets were traditionally very pro DS/GS/2CV and to an extent the CX but then other than meeting some friends i came to the conclusion there was no benefit to attending a Citroen only meeting. I am going to make more of an effort to get to some proper car shows in the XM next year, some venues with a bit more diversity and get the XM out and about, if it will make it.

It was a fantastic weekend, by far the best show I've attended. Everyone was walking around with smiles on their faces, the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. It was good to see Russ there too. A special Thank You to Matthew for recharging my spheres free of charge and also to Will for letting me use his sphere pressure tester, of around 10 spheres which I was going to throw away 9 had not lost pressure and the other 1 was only 5 bar down....

I very much enjoyed hanging out with my XM buddies on the Saturday. I particularly enjoyed driving Matthew's petrol XM (lovely and quiet) and Ray even bought me a burger, and took me for a spin in the CX he was looking after. Next time mate a burger and a C6 thrash for you Mr. Noon.

Russ it was nice to chat to you too and I'm pleased I caught Paul for a few minutes as he arrived and I left. Pity I missed Will-- I follow your V6 project nearly every day like a soap!

There is a small chance I will make the Chevrons Rally-- I am at work then but think it might be the last day of a holiday to Scotland my wife has planned.

What! Ray was giving CX drives????!!! Missed that!

It was good to see you there too James. I like the C6 very much. You don't often see petrol ones. They do sound good.

I'm sure we asked you if you wanted to come to McDonalds Russ, and you declined!
