Citroen Clubs Concours 2016

We had perfect weather for the concours in April at Bundoora Park. The range of models on display was considerable and the quality of restorations proved challenging for the judges. The winner of the show for the people’s choice award as well as the Traction class winner was John Grieve with his Big6H. It gleamed in stunning black. Early models included three 5CV’s and a B2 from the early 1920’s, some undergoing restoration and needed to be trailered to the show. Congratulations to CCOCA for hosting the event and to all the CCCV committee and members who helped out on the day.
