The club is looking for a new permanent home for its collection of workshop manuals, parts books, and other associated documents. If you can help please contact the Secretary.
The next club magazine is underway, so look for it in the post in a couple of weeks time. No sign yet of the all new second generation 308, though first imports of the facelift 3008 are about, we are told. In Europe, the Peugeot name has been dropped from headlines, as company efficiencies, slightly better sales and cash injections have all helped relieve the pressures on the bottom line!
Taranaki member Mike Hodgkinson is in the process of setting up a 203 Register – more in the next magazine. He recently featured in the motoring page of the Taranaki Daily News, and on the Wellington Newspaper’s www.stuff.co.nz web site with his own 203. Oddly we have two of these cars advertised for sale below.
Bolstered by the success of the Pikes Peak hillclimb victory with the 208 T16, Peugeot is to re-enter the Dakar Rally event next year, with a specially modified 2008 DKR.
