Walked past this Mk. 2 yesterday, parked with a Xantia too.

Nice to see it in use.

I also say a 2CV driving about but wasn’t quick enough with the camera and a Pluriel Charleston.

They’ve definitely got a better appreciation for keeping older cars going I’d say. There are quite a few nice old Volvo estates floating about too. Also I came across a classic beautiful Alfa.

The Dutch have a passion for classic cars, despite a punitive annual tax rates for large-engine ones.
Memories of dozens P6 Rovers at a rally years ago.
Hill-climbing competitions somewhat limited, though.

Thanks for the compliments. Suits me, using two XMs, one for me and the other for my wife, for daily use, and a CX in the process of being resprayed and treated for all corrosion and dents, and...... indeed I am Dutch (thought live in total already 19 years in the UK).
