Hi Les

I thought I saw a Citadine on a trailer in the background of one of the shots of the National.  I thought it was Steve Vine's but now you say it came from Southampton all becomes clear!  I helped Steve buy it from a French lady called Nicole Midrouet a few years ago and when I email her she always asks about it.  Please let me know if you restore it or even get it running as she would be very pleased to hear of any progress. 

Regards
Nick D.

Understood Nick! Next year suggest a late Summer camping week end and you'll be alright!

Maybe I'll quote you on that and see if I get away with it!

Hi Nick,
Yes, its the same Citadine all right, I purchased it from Steve bank in June but he kindly
kept it until I came over at the weekend. My message to say I would collect it on Saturday
evening hadn't reached him and we only made contact about 7pm., he was a true gentleman
and cut his night out short to meet us at his yard at midnight and load the Citadine. I will certainly
keep you posted on any progress with getting it up and running. Thanks, Les.

Bond Minibyke perhaps... just wondering what the white car in the last 2 pics 2nd batch? The front looks familiar but I can't remember the name of the 3 wheeler I saw it on.

Both are new to me and look quite nice, with an Imp engine in a small light car it should be quite lively.

Now I remember...I thought the front end of the "Nymph" looked a little like that hideous contraption the 'Ranger Cub'. Though in reality there's little comparison. http://www.minimarcos.org.uk/altpics/ranger/os.jpeg
