Auto Bourse in Grand Pressigny

Yesterday morning we attended the annual Auto Bourse in Le Grand Pressigny meeting up with friends Tim and Pauline who were exhibiting their 1956 Citroen 2 CV.


As usual the event was well attended, with its display of old cars, motorbikes, tractors and static engines, as well as numerous stalls selling everything to do with vehicle engineering. If you are looking for spares for your precious old vehicle, these events are definitely the place to find them.

These are three of my favourites...

 I used to make 'trolleys' as a kid and this, at the time, would have been the Rolls Royce!

Ahh the Citroen SM what's not to love about this V6 Maserati powered Gran Turismo car.

Finally this would be just the job for sawing up all the tree branches we have cut down and are planning to cut down next winter...

We will be back next year.

From the Bourse we went on to Le Petit Pressigny, to a splendid lunch provided by our friends Gaynor and Tim .  It was a great afternoon and a chance to catch up with some of our friends and also meet new ones.  Our thanks go to Gaynor and Tim for hosting a really superb get together.

We were expecting you to turn up with a winter restoration project! Never mind, Colin could always build another trolley...

We were invited to lunch too, but sadly we are still in the UK !!

It was this event, five years ago, that virtually sealed our fate in the village. We were in the middle of our house-hunting mission and we had a day off. We went to this do and decided that what would really suit us was a house in Le Grand-Pressigny. The rest is history !!
