CX Road Trip to Paris

Post by jwalshe » 07 Feb 2014, 21:45

Went to Retromobile and the Aulnay factory in Paris this week with Practical Classics - a road trip with my CX and a Renault Alpine owned by one of the magazine contributors.

CX was faultless (of course!) whilst the Renault was... troublesome!

You can see some of the CX pics here:

The CX trip to Paris is in this month's issue of Practical Classics. Hopefully I did it justice!

Great article. The pictures were good and the good old CX behaved itself, flying the flag for Citroen hydraulic reliability ! Did you see many other CX's when you were over there? I am thinking of a trip to France myself this year.

Not one single CX Jon. Not one!

Franklin was talking about gathering a group of us together for a convoy drive...!

I would be up for that ! I am amazed that there are so few left in France although I suppose they never had the same following as the DS. Love the picture of your car with the Paris Pylon in the background, you need to get that framed. I had Practical Classics here a couple of weeks ago and I believe my car will be in the next edition and I am a bit nervous about it.
