Open Day at the Panhard defense factory

Gérard Nayme and some friends were able to go to an open house at the end of June 2017 at the Panhard factory in St Germain Laval a few weeks ago.
It was an opportunity to visit this site, rarely open to visitors, in a small sympathetic procession which included, besides the X 72 of Gérard, a Dyna X, a Junior, two PL 17 and a very rare 1897 wagonette equipped with the engine M2F

It’s still Panhard material, but 120 years separate these two mechanics !

A sympathetic buffet had completed this day of discovery and the participants warmly thanked Mr. Jammes Director of Panhard Défense who had embellished this visit of his person. A warm welcome and a good atmosphere made the success of this day, thank you again to the management of the factory for having opened the doors of the workshops.

Avignon Motor Festival, Les Doyennes were there …

On 24th, 25th and 26th of March, the traditional Motor Festival was held in Avignon, where passengers of ancient mechanics and locomotion gathered every year. Indeed there are for all tastes: luxury cars or popular, military vehicles, trucks, motorcycles, miniatures, not to mention the stock exchange and an auction on Sunday.


A beautiful lineup of Juvaquatre !

Despite a sullen weather, the exchange has kept its promises

A Hispano-Suiza auction that has little airs of panning.

Being beautiful like a truck, that’s it …

If the Deans did not have a stand, it was an opportunity for the “Southern” members (but not that!) To meet and for some to meet for the first time.
Alfred Morenas and Gilbert Blossin members of the Deans recently had come to neighbors. It was an opportunity to meet Gérard Nayme, who had come from Saint-Etienne with other panhardists, and Gilles Vayre from Narbonne.
We also met Stéphane Leminier, who was also a member of the deans and animated the Peugeot 604 booth.

The meal was taken together in the van of Gilbert, in a good atmosphere that the weather fails to start …

Rendez-vous was taken for next year hoping that other members will join this friendly team …

The club also has a new website (PL etc) together with a new Bulletin. This year all the Panhard clubs are invited to celebrate the 125 years of the marque at Compiegne (France).

This will take place at the beginning of October.

The pretty X19 with tourer body is a 10HP model from 1918 with Poppet Valves. Until recent times the Sleeve Valve engine was generally misunderstood, but their advantages are once again appreciated by collectors. We now have members who are passionate about their cars for the last thirty or forty years.

Today, Sleeve Valve Panhards can be sourced in good order at reasonable prices compared to other quality makes of car.
