Just want to congratulate you for a wonderful video.
Also want to say what an honor it must be for Paul Bracq
to be able to attend these events in his senior years
and see how beloved his creation has become.

Garry...

Yes, we have a plan for next year gathering. For the time being it is the middle of August, and more specifically 16-19 of August 2018.

Hello Artur.

Would be great if it could be 4 weeks later closer to the Euro Event then Garry and I would be able to attest as well ... however, your timing must have there reasons based on location and weather conditions. Gerry can I'm sure stay longer in Europe, however, I can only stay 2 weeks next year.

Best,

Dieter

PS. Garry and I will be driving a Pagoda from a fellow Member at the Euro 2018 event, we are both looking forward to it.

Rolf-Dieter,


The Euro Event is from 27 to 30 September 2018 so an August date could work well for me as I was planning on spending at least a month or two before hand around Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, Czech, Poland and then maybe Scandinavia  before heading home.

Artur,  Where are you holding the event.  Pretty sure Kate and I will be where ever it is.

This is great! Paul Bracq designed so many of the cars we all know and love; I am glad he is getting some of the honor and recognition he deserves, and enjoying the appreciation of his timeless and beautiful designs.

Garry, of course I know the dates of the Euro Event, can't wait :) unfortunately Ii can only devote 2 weeks next year since I have other commitments. I do remember when I was down under in 1984 you folks love to make those 2 to 3 months Euro Holidays every 3 years or so. I've learned quite a bit about Australia on my 4 months project way back then :)
