Frontal Damage to the DS

Today I went to the Citroen Car Club meeting to get the historic rego signed for my Traction Avant. I am not often able to attend these meetings so it was good to catch up with the members. I even won a prize!

I took the DS and it was running really nicely on the […]

2016 Shannons Eastern Creek Car Show

Late August means its time again for the big eastern creek car show, which is organized by the CMC and Shannons.

2015 Shannons Sydney Spring Classic Auction Preview

The regular Shannons auctions are always a great way to see an interesting collection of classic cars and know what they actually sell for.

There were two […]

2014 Shannons Sydney Late Autumn Classic Auction

This month’s Shannons Auction had a few cars I wanted to drop by and see.

The first was a W111 Convertible – A manual 220SE. The car looked nice from the photos and the price range seemed a bit low to me. ($54,000-$60,000).

The car is nice for that price – I would rate […]
