Date   

spaghetti Picnic ...

Chris Beebe
 

Greetings every one !

    Emily and I have been unsure of this picnic we've been hosting on for decades,   this corona virus has had its effects on everyone and most everything.   But, since I suspect we've all been fully protected by now with vaccines and time since,  we are safe to open our lives to outings again.    We decided to first wing it on just some of our musical friends,   and I thought to include (even at this late date) an invite to the Citroen folks,  just in case some of you might enjoy a visit, an outing or destination this coming Saturday afternoon, the 29th of May.

    If anyone thinks they'd like to make the picnic this Saturday, we'd like a RSVP so we know what to expect, lowering the surprise factor and let us better prepare. Previous years we asked folks to bring a dish to pass.


    ALSO, ...

I have considered to make the 100th celebration gathering of Citroën cars and folks an Annual thing when combined with the Botham show in August, but instead of someone providing the food and effort, (like the Vogel's did) everyone brings their own picnic goodies and wine to sip. Taking their own trash along with them also helps out.

  I'd like some feed-back over the Botham show weekend gathering.     Thanks !   Chris
 
Hi all,

If you are without plans Saturday 5/29 (Memorial Day Saturday), you and family are welcome to come to our place for Spaghetti. I'm hoping to have something ready by 4 or 5 pm; You are welcome to come as early as 2 to hang out and play tunes. Feel free to bring salads, garlic bread, dessert, beverages. Food contributions not required. 

We are expecting our son Graham and his three roommates from UW Milwaukee (all fully vaccinated).  We will also open this to some musical folks from Moldy Jam. Hoping to keep the numbers below 20 so I can share tunes with y'all.

Chris was asked to be at the Microcar museum re-opening in Mazomanie earlier in the day; he spent many hours/months restoring the little cars that got flooded in that terrible rainstorm several years ago. 

Please let us know if you think you might join us for our resurrected spaghetti picnic.

Emily

Hey folks,

I was surprised to discover that no one has started a Renault Email list. There are several Facebook pages, but we all know the drawbacks.

Here's a link. New members with be first message moderated, same as here.

That would make a grand visit !   They have a wonderful collection,  and there are fine places to eat in Mazomanie. Nice destination and roads.   Chris

More good news. A few years ago, we included a stop at the Microcar
Museum in Mazomanie. They suffered the death if its founder, a flood
which inundated the museum's ground floor, severely damaging a large
number of their cars and then, to top it off, the Covid mess.

This week they announced their re-opening  this month.

I think we should plan on some sort of ride out there to take it in.

Yes, that would be me. I use the same folder for all incoming local car emails and I should have looked more closely at the incoming address. For some reason, I assumed it was from Citrowisc and everyone saw it.

Thanks to Chris and his wife for a grand day.

See you later this summer.

Hi Leslie:

I am still debating whether I will bring my 2cv at the Botham Vineyards event.  I have done it a couple of times.  But if I don't I will most probably come anyway to see the cars there.

Sad that we have not been able to see you recently.  While I keep track of what happens at the French House as I am on its Board of Directors, there has been no public events there for more than a year.

Jill and I have been fully vaccinated more than a month ago, so we are hoping to have a more normal life soon.  I will go to France in June unless there are last minute problems.

Cheers.

Alain Peyrot

Re: Whitelaw French Car Report

What a fine selection of vehicles described here!    I'll be interested in seeing any of whatever shows up anywhere.  I'm sorry I didn't get the word out properly to this club of my gathering at my shop near Brooklyn last Saturday.   I'll do better next time.     Chris Beebe

Quick French car update from up here in Whitelaw (Manitowoc):

 

  • ‘ 83 2CV6 remains on Washington Island - drove it last weekend, answering questions at every place we stopped.  This is the wife’s car and she really likes it for Island use. 
  • ’73 DSuper5 was blocked in by equipment this winter and needs the same final bits sorting out as when Mark helped me.  Winter plans didn’t happen.  Surprised that the wife is really "meh" about this car, so uncertain if I will keep it around.
  • ’81 CX Athena 5sp got dirty this winter as one of our employees uncovered it to move it and then left the cover off.  By the time I noticed that had happened it was already dirty enough that the cover couldn't go back on.  With a couple hours detailing, ready to go.  If I narrow down to just one CX then this one gets sold. 
  • ’61 Panhard PL-17 is ready to go.  Some minor trim still being sorted out to be show ready.  Wife doesn't know about this car, as I had one when we first dated, so she will get to see it around our anniversary this summer.  Some unique parts came from France during the lockdown and pretty happy with this car.
  • ’65 Panhard 24bt is ready to go.  Again found a couple trinkets for little details during the lockdown in France.  Even though my wife thinks it cute, I am too big for this car and  it is going to be sold once I put together an ad. 
  • ’69 Dyane-6 is mechanically ready to go.  I haven't put in the new door cards yet to finish the new interior, and remain undecided about my repainting plans.  I'm likely to sell/trade this one too. 
  • The Peugeot 504D sedans (’75 & ’76 )remain projects.  Green one had a fresh rebuild engine and the sable one has a rebuild that isn’t timed right and may need to come apart again.  They are going to go away once I get around to advertising them.  Simply lack of time here. 

 

Coming in late in May from extensive renovations at Citroen Andre's shop in Holland, is another ’81 CX.  This is a CX2400 Pallas Automatic a buddy bought for me in France last year.  Andre's shop did a very deep dive into the car getting it ready.  Everything from new main seals to radiator to headliner to all new brakes, to the usual spheres, tires and such.  This one is ready to go & show. 

 

I’m watchful but not aggressive, about finding a PL-17 wagon, either a PL-17 Cabrio (I should have kept the one I had) or 504 Cabrio, or a minty 604.  Kind of have given up on the idea of a C6 given the difficulties maintaining them in Europe much less here.  Wife thinks we should have a traction at some point.

I think a Panhard would draw a lot of attention. We never had one here in all these years! If you can bring two, my second choice would be (drum roll)....Aw, I'll let one of you other guys pick one too!

Well,   Chris Beebe here, 

     Let it be known that I have offered a tour stop at my shop near Brooklyn, Wi.   on Mother's Day.

  The group is based out of Lake Geneva and No Chicago,  they tell me,   and asked if I was willing.  I agreed if we'd all have been two weeks after our final vaccine,  stayed masked and prudently apart as guide-lines suggest.

   Just a thought if anyone else would like to join in,  carrying your own food and drink,  I would provide facilities and a place/destination we can share ideas and stories.  

  If interested,  I could offer specs on what they have planned.        Chris

I sure hope that the Botham Vintage Celebration will be back on for this year. It is usually the second Sunday in August.

Got some bad news. Botham Vineyards Vintage Celebration has been cancelled under the burden of covid precautions.

Bummer. This will be the first year since 1996 that i will not go there in August.
