VISIT TO THE MONTE CARLO CLASSIC CAR COLLECTION
to Monaco in 2001 I took the opportunity to visit
the Prince Rainier
Classic Car Collection which was housed in a smart Museum near to the Fontvielle
yacht marina. The main reason for my visit was that the Museum houses three rear
drive Citroens all supposed to be Model C's, similar to mine. Two are,- one being
a Cabriolet like mine and the other a Tourer. The third was a Cloverleaf but surely a
Type B variety! Museum was very helpful and provided me with an Engineer so that I
could climb all over them and take some useful video of various original bits. I then
took a lengthy wander through the rest of the Museum which was well worth a visit.
The resultant pickies are 'still scans' from the video 'film' so they are a bit grainy
and the quality is not brilliant. Many of the cars were subsequently sold by his son
Prince Albert to international dismay and the site was due to be developed !
