of Resources On the Slough BIG SIX
When I moved from the Netherlands to England in 1984, I came over on the ferry, with a French LegŤre (CitroŽn 11BL) and a French Normale CitroŽn 11BN). Quite soon after my arrival I picked up the trail of a 1948 Slough built and therefore Right Hand Drive Six. This was a very rare car as only 7 were built that year, out of a total production of Slough Sixes of 1671. (Source: The British CitroŽn, Malcom Bobitt). About 6 years later 'L'histoire se repŤte!': I come on the trail of an even rarer Slough Roadster. So the beautifully restored Six is put on eBay to pay for the new purchase. Four years later I bitterly regret the sale and would like to buy it back. In fact it comes up for auction in Paris and I am on the phone bidding for it. I get Cold feet at Ä 24,000 and hang up the phone. Wracked by remorse I buy a 1949 French 15/CV Six from my Friend John Gillard of Classic Restorations in the vague hope I will meet the new owner either in Dunkerque (70 ans de traction Avant) or the 13th ICCCR in Interlaken. No such luck :-( Come on someone must know where this car is now languishing and suerely the new French Owner would gladly part-exchange it for my beautiful new French Left Hand Drive 1945 15 CV/SIX?
