OH, I love the picture of your Ami6! Mine was the same color, the pale green. Yours has French plates? Mine was one of the rare ones sold here, a '65 that I bought in 87. I'd love a 2CV, perfect for tooling along on hwy 1. sigh. There is a guy up here who has a number of Citroens and Panhards, his name is, I want to say, Dennis something, lives in Schooner Gulch.

"but I can do tedious things like remove old gasket, uncomplicated things that I can be shown how to do and then set loose"

Sounds good. That's kind of what I was thinking, learning from each other on the small, tedious things. I had a nasty time with the gasket on the door and the one on the skylight, the ones I bought didn't fit properly, and shaved them to work. The look awful but work for now. Next little project is resealing the windows.

Where are you in Alameda? I moved up here from North Oakland, and grew up in Piedmont. I know Alameda well.

thanks

Ingrid, we need something to do on Saturday afternoon at the Casini rally. Get your shell on and bring it with you so we can have a hands on demonstration.

Peter, here is link to read about our local Citroen club:
CITROENSANFRANCISCO.COM

I grew up in Berkeley, attended grade school in both Berkeley and Oakland until the mid seventies.

Thanks for the link. What a great calendar. I'm torn between a 2CV and something to pull the Airstream. Maybe an SM? You don't pull with a DS, do you? I thought because of your avatar. Hey Jeff, did you go to Berkeley High? I tried to escape Piedmont High in 1978 to go to Berkeley because I knew a lot of people there.

Peter

Peter;

There are lots of us in northern Calif, including the group that started a few years ago, and loves to get together on the Russian River each spring.. I've managed to tow 25 Excella into and through Sea Ranch parking lot for lunch on run up the coast, and friend at work just bought home up there..

Best "rule" for get-togethers here is to decide on a place and date and announce it, and see who shows up.. If you pick spot with some hookups and interesting activities you should find lots of takers.. There are also lots of WBCCI Members from several units here, including northern California and Santa Clara Units, among others, who organize events north of SFO.. Forum Rallies a little less formal.. (or a LOT less formal.. )

Hey Condo,

I like that thought, throwing out a date and place and seeing who responds. Where did your friends buy up here? We're at the south end, above lodge and north a bit. That was YOU with the Airstream in the lodge lot! Just kidding, it would've been a tight squeeze, turning around, right?

Peter

Peter, I left Berkeley in 1976 and attended High School in Carmel.
I don't tow an Airstream with a DS but this is what the two look like together:

That is awesome! I saw a picture of a tow hitch for a DS, I think it was the entire length of the car, like an additional ladder frame.

Funny, we used to take my beater VWs to Big Sur to camp in '79 and '80, just before graduation. We'd hang out with friends whose parents had a cottage in Carmel. I love that area. We just went to Asilomar in June for an overnight on the way to LA. The beaches around Monterey and Carmel are kind of dreamy.

You don't happen to know of anyone with a '70-71 Peugeot 304, do you?

take care

Peter

Peter, thats a tall order! Very few 304 Peugeots ventured to the states. I'll put a word out for you. I'm looking for a 404. I have to agree about our local beaches, my office is right arcoss the street from one.

No, I don't know anyone with a 304 either. A teacher at my elementary school had one, in 1972, but I'm surprised that I haven't seen ANY, even in Berkeley, since then. I saw a neat 404 on ebay a while ago. I'd love to have an R16, among other things. I've always loved the French cars, especially after hitchhiking back and forth across France in the early 80s.

Dennis Ice is the local guy with the Citroens and Panhards. Do you know him?

take care

Peter

Jeff, Peter; Just wine for you two Peugeot nuts at Casini. The margaritas are just for the Airstream conversationalists. 'You wanna talk about big block Buicks.

Neil.

hmmm, how about Cognac? I see that 455 Buick.... I helped a friend, or rather 4 of us helped a friend pull his Olds 455 once. I'm partial to engines I can lift by myself, like the Citroen 602cc, or my Saab 850 3-cyl. I wonder how much a Peugot 604 V6 can tow?

Very funny Neil. We shall talk big block shop at Casini, yes?
You know there's no replacement for displacement!
As for the 3 cylinder 2 stroke Saab Peter, I'd be lost thinking where to put lube for the bar oil

that would be a heck of a chainsaw! It might be better suited to one of those gas powered blenders, 55 gallons or so? I can taste the salt and lime already.
