I think the first 'production' version #4 was bought by Gerry Fosh in 1999 after it being displayed at a kit car show that year. The prototype #1 is the current demonstrator, #2 built by Ian Hainsworth and #3 by Barry Holden. These two used home built chassis and are 'one offs'

We could have a 20 year event next year - anyone fancy organising it?

Hi, I have no.4 here in France as it needed a new home urgently... It is quite different to the later models in small areas of build and exhaust manifold.but recognisably a pembleton.It was the first one sold to the public and started a good trend...

I think we need to decide what we want to do first. How about a return to the Bell at Pensax, ( perry cider anyone? ) and a visit to Phil's on the Friday, and a run on the Saturday to somewhere in Wales, maybe? Also, perhaps, David, could you split this thread, and put this bit in events?. I'd certainly come providing it doesn't clash with something vital. Also need some sort of consensus on dates. Shouldn't need a huge amount of organisation, apart from the run.

By coincidence 2019 is also Citroen's centenary. https://amicaledesclubscitroenetdsfranc ... s-citroen/
How about we get the largest gathering of Pembletons ever to cross the channel to take part?
