Wasn't Richard a fresh-faced young chap back in '85? :)

Wish there was a video of the Bog-Buster's car in the marquee being given the full 'look, no dampers' workout to this tune.

Hello everyone,
I continue to surf around this endless forum and it's very nice to find so many interesting things.
This picture was taken in the 7th 2cv WM at Ericeira and was the only 2cvWM ever made in Portugal.
Real nice 8-)

Cheers,

OK then, here are some pics. This first batch are from the 1987 World Meeting in Portugal, and the 'Save the 2cv' meeting in Paris that we went to on the way to Portugal - this was where the petition 2cv was presented to Citroen.

The 4x4 demo, where one Dutch guy in a standard 2wd 2cv wrecked his chassis. He had to set off back to Holland then next day, so a new chassis was bought in Lisbon, and the car rebuilt overnight in the garage tent.


Well Jono, I must tell you that this overnight rebuilding story is still talked here in Portugal when people comments the "stories" from the 2cv WM.
At that time I was only 14... :oops:

Cheers,

Portugal remains one of my favourite World Meetings - I was only 7 at the time, and that's me in the picture above.

I've come to the conclusion, that I'm not that sad I didn't get to most of these meetings, so no dodgy photos of me to appear!
