Icing on the cake the weekly quiz presents a valve-free, but the question was not very difficult …

 



 

RETROMOBILE 2018 avec les Doyennes…

Many candles were blown for this 43 th Retromobile! 120 Years for Renault – 70 for Honda, Porsche, 2 CV and 203 – 50 years for the Mehari and the 504 …
105 000 visitors this year (against 118 000 last year) down, probably due to the snowy episode and weather conditions in Paris this year. Perhaps also because of the price of the ticket which went from 18 to 20 € …

The Doyennes had a booth at the bottom of the pavilion 3 … It really had to want to come here to discover our booth, but the presence of a ham restaurant on the alley just last us, finally helped to drain a crowd compact all around the stand …

Jean-Michel Rongione our friendly member had done us the honor to lend us his beautiful X 57 of 1928, he is already thanked!

We can see in the photos the interest of the public for our stand and it did not take too much to answer the questions of the public, meet the members of passages (we had the pleasure of chatting with American, Spanish or Italian members !) and … monitor the various items exposed or the mascot of the radiator …

Notre stand jouxtait celui du Dynamic Club P& L qui présentait une bien rare Dynavia

 

Vidéo of the exhibition

The Mulhouse Automobile Museum presented the P & L archives of 1934. During the inter-war period, Paul Panhard wanted to give the brand a sportier image. It is natural that he decides to turn to the records. At this time, monsters of 8 liters and more are in vogue.
Paul Panhard decides to modify a Panhard of 35 CV of 1926 at the initiative of a record hunter: the Englishman Georgs Eyston. They push the engine to 290 hp, deepen the body to make it more aerodynamic and remove the brakes on the front wheels.
February 4, 1934 George Eyston rushes to break the world record of the hour. After 60 minutes it returns in history having traveled 214,064 km.

Among the aisles a visit to the artists’ village allowed to discover beautiful original works on the theme of the car of course:

 

 

 

Retromobile are hundreds of booths where sellers of spare parts and books are also present …

So thank you to everyone who helped with the logistics so that we could hold the stand for a week, which is never obvious …
The 2018 edition has been for our club rich in encounters and emotion, we now give you an appointment on the roads of Anjou for the next Rally Club Brand we will organize next September …



RALLY DES CLUBS DE MARQUE 2017

Travel Notes, by Daniel Marachin.

The Lorraine-Dietrich Club and its dynamic President Philippe Leroux
took the Brand Club Rally in … Lorraine, what a surprise!
Another nice surprise, the ten cars of the organizing club on the road,
including a 1908 race car that went beyond everyone and everywhere!
A beautiful program of discovery of gently rolling landscapes,
and visits to emblematic places: mirabelle museum,
craftsmen town of Remiremont “in almost original condition”,
museum of the images of Epinal, castle of Lunéville, …
All the brands of the association were represented, except … the Deans!
due to lack of space at the hotel. Fortunately, I was able to represent
the club as a member, and participating with a Facel – Simca sport coupe from 1951!
(at the request of Arnaud, who had written a beautiful word of presentation of the Rally 2018)
Beautiful Bugatti, Facel, Hispano, Salmson and Talbot whose Clubs are always well represented at the Brand Rallies, with Hotchkiss “guests” and the 15CV Family Traction of the Céréde Family (see photos)
The organizers, the couple Philippe and Christine, assisted by the faithful Patrick Saffier of Bard,
were warmly applauded and congratulated … on Mirabelle, before the passage
relay at the club des Doyennes for 2018 in the region of Saumur.

EPOQU’AUTO Lyon, les Doyennes were there !

The Epoqu’auto Lyon trade fair has just ended and the time has come.
With more than 70,000 visitors in three days and attendance increasing by 20%, this show has become a must and the second largest in France.
There will be an increase in fans for “youngtimers” (cars from the 70s-80s) Youngtimers are future collectors and must now have their place in the world of the collection, despite the nostalgia of the old car …

The Rhône-Alpes team, led by the devoted Gérard Nayme, had been working for several days to set up the stand.

Our booth was shared with the Panhard & amp; levassor France. The theme was the holidays, and the two little Dyna’s got their wheels in the sand surrounded by small boats and other beach accessories. the spots in hall 5 did not replace the sun of southern France, but the illusion was very real …

Mr de Saint-Vis, a member of the Doyennes, had kindly loaned his X 45, a chauffeur-driven 1925 chauffeur, which was very successful. It is rare to see such cars in this state. Many people would have liked to hear the 4 cylinders without valve purring …

The president Arnaud Blanc had also made the trip as well as Mathieu Cognet in charge of the organization of the exhibitions.

It was an opportunity for the team to meet lovers of valves, to create new links and make two club memberships. The two models who brought a retro touch to the stand also had their small success judging by the number of visitors who literally strafed them for 3 days.

It would take 10 pages to describe everything that was exhibited in the various halls, but the plateau was of quality and the number of sellers of impressive pieces, here are some stand taken at random aisles …

Scooters do you want it here …

Sellers of parts and accessories were not left out and offered a lot of objects

Beautiful as a truck … hotchkiss

Peugeot 203 Dar’l Mart please …

That’s Lyon 2017 it’s over! Thank you to all the team who did not spare his time to present this stand which was very successful, with a special mention to Gerard Nayme who ensured the logistics with brio and sympathy! A big thank you to Mr De Saint Vis and his son who were kind enough to entrust us with their magnificent chauffeur coupe.

Thank you also for the club Panhard & Levassor France who helped us for logistics, meals etc, a big thank you to them too!

 


AUTOMEDON – Le Bourget 2017: The Doyennes had stand

 

Last October 14 and 15 Panhard’s & levassor shared a stand with the CPLF at Automedon. This was an opportunity for the team who had the opportunity to hold the booth to meet and chat with members of the club who had visited us.
Arnaud Blanc, our president, was pleased to lend his magnificent Dynamic of 1939 for the occasion. It attracted many visitors and raised many questions, particularly concerning the operation of the engine without a valve.

Our friend Michel Rongione, member of the club, for his part, saw his magnificent X 57 exposed next to a Delaunay Belleville and another P & amp; L of 1913 of a light green of most seyant. With French bodywork being honored this year, the Dean brand was well represented!

Michel’s X 57, converted and seen from the rear: magnificent !

Alongside an ancestor of the same brand, with its fuel cans.

At the turn of the alleys, the magnificent Torpedo Sport 6 DS, type X66 by Alain Coustenoble was also honored in the company of two ancestors loaned by the Mulhouse museum.

At his side a coupe driver Rothschild of 1911, type X8 loaned by the museum of Mulhouse

On the same stand the museum in Mulhouse presented a Kellner driver coupe of 1906, with its large 4-cylinder engine of 5319 cm3 which propelled this car at 80 km / h!

On the parking lots were the popular French cars, but also American ones … For the pleasure of the eyes …

Une autre Panhard rendait encore hommage à la carrosserie française au détour d’un stand.

Finally, a beautiful lounge with a tray of choice and a good atmosphere within the booth of the Doyennes !

On the booth Gérard Nayme had made a display with the different pieces that the club is doing to remake (see on the site the re-manufactures in progress) this display has been very successful and some members have ordered. A nice display however not wide enough to hide a bottle that was there only for the welcome of the visitors of course ….
