7th National Renault 4CV Muster.
13-16 April 2001, Gulgong N.S.W.
The first Muster of the new century was a great success in terms of the cars involved, the sightseeing, the socialising and the weather.
In total there were twenty eight 4CVs, making this certainly the largest gathering of these vehicles in Australia since production finished in 1961. What also made it remarkable was that the cars present were a large proportion of the roadworthy 4CVs in Australia. Entrants came from as far as Adelaide, Melbourne, and Cairns in Far North Queensland – distances comparable to the length and breadth of western Europe! There also were a Dauphine, a Floride, three R4s, and a R10.
The 13th was “arrivals” day, with plenty of socialising and car washing. On the 14th we grouped the cars, then drove in convoy to display them at a park in Gulgong, before driving to Poet’s Corner Craigmoor winery for another display and lunch. That night we had our official dinner, with entertainment by the group “Lawson’s Mates”. On the 15th the cars travelled in convoy to a picnic spot in the country (“the bush”). Finally, most people returned home on the 16th.
