In 1954 they produced the world's first hydro pneumatic self-levelling suspension system then in 1955, the revolutionary DS the first mass-produced car with modern disc brakes and, in 1967, they introduced in several of their models swivelling headlights that allowed for greater visibility on winding roads; these cars have received various national and international awards, including three European Car of the Year.

Citroen has been selling vehicles in China since 1984, largely via the Dongfeng Peugeot-Citroen joint venture, which today represents a major market for the brand. In 2014, when PSA Peugeot Citroen ran into severe financial difficulties, the Dongfeng Motor Corporation took an ownership stake. Citroen Traction Avant

The Citroen Automobile Manufacturer Andre Citroen built armaments for France during World War I; after the war however, he realised that, unless he planned ahead he would have a modern factory without a product. There was nothing automatic about his decision to become an automobile manufacturer once the war was over the automotive business was one that Citroen knew well, thanks to a successful six-year stint working with Mors between 1908 and the outbreak of war. The decision to switch to automobile manufacturing was evidently taken as early as 1916, which is the year when Citroen asked the engineer Louis Dufresne, previously with Panhard, to design a technically-sophisticated 18HP automobile 1919 Citroën A 8CV Torpedo for which he could use his factory once peace returned. Long before that happened, however, he had modified his vision and decided, like Henry Ford, that the best post-war opportunities in auto-making would involve a lighter car of good quality, but made in sufficient quantities to be priced enticingly. In February 1917 Citroen contacted another engineer, Jules Salomon, who already 1923 Type C 5CV had a considerable reputation within the French automotive sector as the creator, in 1909, of a little car called Le Zèbre. André Citroen's mandate was characteristically demanding and characteristically simple: to produce an all-new design for a 10 HP car that would be better equipped, more robust and less costly to produce than any rival product at the time. The result was the Type A, announced to the press in March 1919, just four months after the guns fell silent. The first production Type A emerged from the factory at the end of May 1919 and in June it was exhibited at a show room at Number 42, on the Champs-Elysees in Paris which normally sold Alda cars. Citroen persuaded the owner of the Alda business, Fernand Charron, to lend him the show-room, which is still in use today. This C42 showroom is where the company organises exhibitions and shows its vehicles and concept cars. A few years later, Charron would be persuaded to become a major investor in the Citroen business. On 7 July 1919, the first customer took delivery of a new Citroen 10HP Type A. That same year, Andra Citroen briefly negotiated with General Motors a proposed sale of the Citroen company. The deal nearly closed, but General Motors ultimately decided that its management and capital would be too overstretched by the takeover. thus Citroen remained independent till 1935. Between 1921 and 1937, Citroen produced half-track vehicles for off-road and military uses, using the Kegresse track system. In the 1920s, the U.S. Army purCitroen H Van 1955 Citroën 2CV chased several Citroen-Kegresse vehicles for evaluation followed by a licence to produce them. This resulted in the Army Ordnance Department building a prototype in 1939. In December 1942, it went into production with the M2 Half Track Car and M3 Half-track versions. The U.S. eventually produced more than 41,000 vehicles in over 70 versions between 1940 and 1944. After their 1940 occupation of France, the Nazi's captured many of the Citroen half-track vehicles and armoured them for their own use. Mr Citroen was a keen marketer: he used the Eiffel Tower as the world's largest advertising sign, as recorded in Guinness World Records. He also sponsored expeditions in Asia (Croisiere Jaune), North America (Croisiere Blanche) and Africa (Croisiere Noire), demonstrating the potential for motor vehicles equipped with the Kegresse track system to cross in hospitable regions. These expeditions conveyed scientists and 2 journalists.

16th 17th 18th October — Extended Mid-Week Run for CHB VCC Scarlett and Rod are putting together a three-day trip into the bowels of the King Country and Taranaki area for mid-October. We will be away for two nights and three days of motoring with a few interesting visits and things to see and do. This run will obviously entail some fairly full days of motoring [eg up to 350km per day!], so it will be more suitable for P45, P60’s and P80’s vehicles, but that is not to say that you shouldn’t drive your Vintage or PV vehicle on the run if you know it is up to it. But, if you must, bring your TPV*. You will need to have a good road map [AA road maps available at Waipukurau Library] or electronic GPS at hand when you start the run. It will be cheaper if you pack a picnic lunch for our first lunch stop before you leave home. The run will be in the form of a “Tour” and will be non-competitive. Visits will include shopping and sight-seeing in Te Kuiti [eg. Colin Meads statue], lunch at the Whangamomona pub, and a visit to the Tawhiti Museum near Hawera.

The Motels we intend staying at are as follows: The night of Wednesday 16th October, is in Te Kuiti: Panorama Motor Inn ph 07 878 8051 The night of Thursday 17th October, is in Hawera: Kerry Lane Motel ph 0800 537 795 You are advised to have your bookings done well in advance, but you are free to stay at any other motel or camping ground as you see fit. It is suggested that you phone your booking into the motel so you can tell them you are on this trip, and they can place us all closer together at their complex. You will, of course, need to budget for all of your smokos, tea/coffee stops, lunches, evening meals, and other motoring costs, etc. Initial Instructions: Leave from your home in your own time on the morning of Wednesday 16 th October, [we suggest 8.00am if departing from Waipukurau] and pass through Napier and Eskdale to ultimately assemble for morning tea/coffee in Tarawera [about 10.00am] at their café. If you haven’t taken your lunch with you, you will need to pick up something from Wairakei or Whakamaru, where we will regroup for lunch. fuel is available there too. Once at Tarawera, we will hand out the instructions for the rest of the journey/ Adventure. But as you can see above, we will be over-nighting at Te Kuiti and Hawera. 3

16th 17th 18th October — Extended Mid-Week Run for CHB VCC It would be helpful to confirm with Rod and Scarlett [ rod.mckenzie.wpk@xtra.co.nz ] if you intend to join us on this trip so they then know how many instruction sheets to print out and also to advise people, at any of the stops we intend making, how many of our folk are likely to turn up. Additionally: should you desire to enter the King Country Branch VCC “Journey Through Time Rally” around Taumarunui district on 19th October, contact John and Shirley Foot who are holding “Entry Forms” for the event. Phone them on 06 858 8301 for details, or email them at jsfoot@xtra.co.nz

By the way, “TPV” is a “Tin and Plastic Vehicle”……a modern! Sunday 20th October 2019 —Club run to Lemon's Museum—organisers Rod & Carol Naylor PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS A $10.00 DOOR CHARGE PER PERSON AT THE LEMON MUSEUM. Members are asked to meet at Silky Oak Cafe, Links Road, Waiohiki at 10.00am Sunday 20th October. From there, we will do a run through Puketitiri Road, Seafield Road and left into Hedgeley Road to the new Lemon Museum. Adrian and his daughter have done an out-standing job in relocating this collection. It has been set up in such a way that it is going to give pleasure for generations to come. On leaving the Museum, and to continue the program for the day we will head out to Eskdale highway, then proceed to Napier waterfront, through Clive, onto Tuki Tuki Road, then Kahuranaki Road (which is also the Elsthorpe Road) for 5.2ks. You will come to a small bridge and as you come off the bridge, turn directly left up Raratu Road and travelling carefully, veer right over the cattle stop and continue another 900 metres to the very top to No.39 where you will end up in the back yard of our home. Please bring the savoury (sandwiches etc.) part of your lunch and we will provide the dessert. Also bring chairs, hats, dessert plates cutlery and a thermos for tea or coffee or a cold drink. Also bring an appetite. We will circulate more detailed instructions on the day as to the exact location of our house. Looking forward to hosting you on the day,

A big thank you to all VCC members that turned out for the Ongaonga Spring Fling and Fare About twenty cars in total and all looking immaculate as did those people that were in period costume. What a great day weather wise and the atmosphere was electric. The public attendance was about 6500 and cars were parked to a kilometre away from the Village as well as any spare paddocks in the vicinity. The Historic Society raised nearly $8000 towards the restoration of the Old Coles Factory but we have a long way to go yet. For those of you who could not make it I think we are doing it again next year so watch this space. Once again many thanks for your support, it is really appreciated — Robin Mackie. 4

Chairman's Report — October 2019 We are coming back to earth now with the Daffodil Day for Cancer Rally is out of our hair, although there remains one cheque still to come in from the Waipawa Lions Club, as at our debrief meeting on 12th September 2019. The branch committee meeting of 10th September moved to present a cheque of $4,500 to the Local Cancer Society. This will be done when a suitable time can be arranged involving, VCC, Cancer Society and a CHB Mail photographer. Our usual September run (formerly our daffodil run) was postponed from 8th to 15th September due to inclement weather forecasts and this was the right decision as the 15 th turned out to be the fourth fine day in a row, giving the ground time to dry out and a pleasant time was had. The joint meeting with the Manawatu branch was held at Dannevirke on 18th September. It was well attended with 38 members of our branch and 22 from Manawatu. There were two guest speakers, Tony Haycock speaking on the upcoming International Rally in New Plymouth and Tony Blackburn talking about different oils for vehicles. Members of our Branch provided a good turnout for the Onga Onga Historical Day on 22nd September and it turned out to be a great day for all with numbers of the public surprising the organisers. Next month promises to be a busy one with Rod and Scarlett having organised a three day run into the wilds of the King Country and Taranaki. The following Sunday is our monthly run, this time to the new Lemon’s Museum in Eskdale Valley followed by a picnic at Rod and Carol Naylor’s property and a viewing of their collection. Guaranteed to be a good day out. Club Captain Rod seems to have plenty of runs in mind for many months into the future. It will doubtlessly please a number of our members (Ford owners) to find that Sandra and I intend to visit the Henry Ford Museum at Dearborn next year but it might be overtrumped by the following visit to Auburn, Indiana. I hate to admit it but history has shown the supremacy of the V8 over the straight 8 and recent years has shown the same trend of V6 superseding the flat 6, but let us not forget the flat 6 either, which is very compact. Whatever the shape of what propels you along the road, keep at it while you can. There are fun grinches lurking everywhere.

Rod’s Rattling's — October 2019 Around 20 of our branch vehicles turned up at “Taniwha” on a run organised by Bruce Poole and Mya Wairau on Sunday 8th September to view the daffodils. Most of our members had to find somewhere sheltered from the cold and lazy wind to eat their lunches, prior to a walk around the park. There must have been the best part of another two or three hundred modern cars there too, belonging to the general public. Apart from the cool breeze, the weather was good. And I saw several of our folk with bunches of daffodils clutched under their arms. On 22ndSeptember, quite a number of our club cars attended the “Ongaonga Historic Village Spring Fair and Market” with crews looking for a good day out. The weather couldn’t have been nicer as we wandered among the crowd of many hundreds of people. Several of our members also took part in the show by dressing for the day in period costume which adds to the fun in an event such as this. Thanks to Robin Mackie for promoting this event to the branch. The October monthly meeting will be held once again on Tuesday 15th at the Waipukurau Bowling Club rooms off Mt Herbert Rd. Make sure you get your names in to Eva Gollan in good time. We have had a good response from members to go on the “Extended Mid-week Run” that Scarlett and I have put together, with 15 vehicles and their crews going to make the trip starting on 16 th October. Only two will be “TPV’s”, and the drivers of those have good reasons for not being in a VCC acceptable vehicle. On October the 20th, Rod and Carol Naylor will be taking us to see a recently established museum close to Napier. This uses material from the Les Lemmon Puketitiri Museum which closed with the demise of its proprietor some years ago. This will be a run not to be missed! You will need to read the notice within the “Bleat” for times and where to meet. I have heard some wonderful reports from people who have been along to see it, and they are most impressed with the stock and the layout. See the notice in this issue of the “Bleat”. On Saturday 16th November, Gavin and Vivienne Harris are taking Veteran cars and drivers on a tour south of Waipukurau. This event promises to be another fun day out, and to add to the occasion, folk with vintage “Two-Wheeled” braked vehicles will be invited along too. Some marshals may be required, so if you do want to join in as a marshal, give them a call. The next day 17th November, our Branch is combining with the Hawke’s Bay VCC Branch on a locally based “Homestead Run”. We will be going to two Homesteads, one near Springhill at Ongaonga for a picnic lunch, and then on to Oruawharo at Takapau, where you can purchase afternoon tea and have a wander around the premises and buildings. Peter and Diane Harris will be our hosts, and Peter will be sure to give us a talk on the “Oruawharo Homestead” and their passion for what they are achieving with the homestead. Our Christmas Party in December will be at the home of Gary and Janet Weaver in Waipukurau, and more about his will surface in subsequent issues of this magazine. Also in December, Seton and Judy Thomsen will be arranging a “Reliability Run” which will likely be the last CHB VCC outing prior to Christmas.

Rod McKenzie. CHB Branch Club Captain

Thank you to our speakers — written by Rod McKenzie At our monthly meeting which was held at the Services and Citizen Club in Dannevirke, we had two speakers along to address the meeting. The first was Tony Haycock from the VCC Management Committee, who gave us a very good run-down on what is being planned for the International Rally being held in Taranaki in January, 2021. New Plymouth will be the centre where the rally will be based for the week we are there and runs for all of the VCC Categories of vehicle will be catered for. When he asked for a show of hands for those likely to attend the event, he was surprised to see as many hands up as he did. They are hoping for 10% of the total VCC membership to attend, however, if the rest of the country supports the event to the tune of the numbers of hands we saw raised, then it will be a huge rally. Watch for more information and entry forms coming through in future “Beaded Wheels” magazines. The second speaker was Tony Blackburn, a specialist in the field of lubrication, who informed us about grades of oil, what some of the lettering meant, and what type of oil would perhaps be the best to use in our various older motor vehicles. He also had a huge number of “Giveaways” including umbrellas and hats which we drew names for once the monthly raffle was drawn. Incidentally, it was Tony who won the branch raffle this month taking away an interesting basket of goodies, pickles, jam, baking and other items donated by members of the branch. He thought a gift like this would be most acceptable by his partner upon his return home late in the evening.

Sunday 17th September—Our trip to the Taniwha daffodils. — Written by Colleen Duncan We met at the Tavistock Corner at 11.00am. There were about 20 cars. The sun was shining, although a cool breeze was with us. We drove out through Hatuma and safely made our way past the half marathon activities. We were going to offer a couple a ride in the Rolls. They looked pretty tired but decided against it. We travelled on to Arlington Rd and past the Silver Ferns Farm. Then turned right onto State Highway 2 and onto our destination Taniwha Daffodil Farm. Many families were their taking advantage of the lovely spring day . We managed to get a park and enjoyed a lovely stroll through the flowers. Then we found a sheltered spot to enjoy our picnic lunch. A very pleasant day out. A big thank you to Bruce Poole and his granddaughter Mya for arranging this lovely Sunday drive.
