All French Car Day , Silverwater NSW, 2013

The AFCD in 2013 seemed a smaller gathering than previous years but again the weather was perfect for Sydney’s display of French cars. The Peugeot Club organised the day which was supported by the all the Sydney French car clubs.


A number of the usual Renault regular attendees weren’t present due to a variety of reasons, and so we were missing some notable vehicles. After a big Easter for R8s and 4CVs only one R8 Gordini and 4CV were displayed. However, there were some Renaults that we had
not seen before including some 1980s and 1990s models.
