Welcome to  the Citroen DS New Zealand

DS 60th Tour Final Update.
At the final close of entries last Friday 18 Sept only 3 registrations had been received for the full tour.
Because of sponsor commitments and commitments to motels and ferry crossings etc, the organising group have made the very difficult decision to cancel the tour.

However we understand that the three who have registered have decided to do the tour independently. We trust that they have a great time and thank them for their interest in the tour.

The boys in the shed have a new challenge. Fixing up a DS23 bvm. This challenge will be featured on ' The Shed' page. Visit the page by clicking on the image

Jeremy just cannot stop pulling gearboxes apart. This time a BVH.
