Ruim 100 oude Citroëns staan in de rij voor de veerboot IJmuiden-Newcastle. Ze zijn op weg naar het Schotse Kelso, waar van 26 tot en met 31 juli de 16th Meeting of 2CV Friends plaatsvindt. De organisatie verwacht op het landgoed Floors Castle meer dan 2000 'lelijke eendjes' uit 28 landen. Ook vandaag zullen ongeveer 100 bejaarde Citroëns het ruime sop kiezen vanuit IJmuiden.

Hans' Ami6 1962
    This is my AMI6 Berline Grand Comfort 1962.
    The car was built in the Citroën plant in Vorst (near Bruxelles), Belgium.
    The colors Jaune Pamplemousse and Noir for the roof are original.
    I bought the car in 1983 from Julien Vlaminck in Belgium and imported it into The Netherlands, and got the licence plate PZ-85-LY in 1986.
    during the Citroën Summer Party in 1992 it completed the 100.000 km.
    Right now it is under reconstruction, the engine has been adjusted for unleaded fuel.

    The AMI8 replaced the AMI6 in March 1969, it was redesigned, had simplified and smoother bodywork and better visibility, also the "ugly" rear window of the AMI6 had disappeared.

A VIEW IN HISTORY
(a little story from the CCNL-clubmagazine 't2PKtje):
In the early sixties the strange carbuilder Citroën had 3 extraordinaire looking cars in production: the 2CV, the DS and the square HY-van. To fill the gap between the "duck" and the "goddess" they introduced a fourth: the AMI6. This was technically based upon the 2 cilinder 2CV and it's outlook was dominated by the extraordinary lookung "rainfree" rear window. With the AMI6 the French carmaker had a car which was attractive to the biggest group of customers. In the 19 years that the AMI6 (and 8) was delivered in Nederland, Citroën sold 44.000 of them. The top-year was 1969 with 4.178 Ami's.
