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.
