Citroën Kofferbakverkoop (car boot sale)

Today I went along to a meeting of the Citroën ID/DS Club Nederland. It was a kofferbakverkoop, essentially a swap meet or car boot sale, and it was held in Grubbenvorst in the Netherlands. I wasn’t interested in purchasing any parts. I just wanted to meet a few people from the club and see the cars. There were a few very nice ID and DS models there including 2 Chapron convertibles. Below are a few photos for your viewing pleasure.

Not all the DS's were in such a good state...

It was good to meet with and talk to the members of the club. They have an awful lot of knowledge about these very special and unusual cars. I plan on joining the club and attending future meetings.

  1. Fantastic cars, especially the Chaprons. Any decisions yet on what you’re going to do with your DS?

    • Almost decided. Will certainly repair, just not sure where. Calling someone new tomorrow to determine availability.

    OMG! Do they have ratlooks in the DS-scene too :-O

    • No I don’t think so. That was just a genuinely crapped out DS.

      (Ratlook means cars that are technically perfect but look like crap on the outside – apparently it’s a “look” in the VW Beetle scene…)

  1. No trackbacks yet.
