Patrick Koscianski did this once, and I keep meaning to go but there always seems to be a problem.
This year we have friends staying who may not be impressed by a 800km return day out to look at old cars :|

Never had the chance to visit, but it's a big event on the agenda for classic cars ... so I may give it a go this year :wink:

My friend Jean-Paul from Uzes is going on the Sunday - a day trip by bus with his club - and my other friend Xavier (the one who writes articles in LVA) is going on the Saturday. I might drive down on the Friday afternoon after work and go on the Saturday as well :wink:
Ian, if you wish you could drive down to Lyon on the Friday and stay at my place ... then we could attend on the Saturday and possibly meet up with Xavier on site :wink: Sunday would be free for tourism in the morning and driving back to our homes in the afternoon (...)

Do you fancy a 'bouchon lyonnais' ? :lol:

That sounds nice! I will see how the car is performing after the Montée des 3 Cotes this weekend, in Bourgogne, also how the bank balance is holding up, the I'll be in touch again. Thanks for the invitation :D
