Hi Rancho drivers
The first Rancho “get together” will take place this year between 17 and 20 May. The venue is St. Tropez!!
(That is a bit far to drive in the rather slow Rancho when you live in the Northern part of Denmark)

ahh come on! - its downhill all the way down there. It is making it back up here that's the real problem :-)

Very sweet event, - is it really the first Rancho meet ?
and is Mr Gukelberger involved ? (he must be)

Côte d'Azur is beautiful in May, well worth a visit. But yes, it's a long way in an old car, and no, Lennart, it's not downhill all the way!

I think I'll be going there in March/April (in the Grand Espace with the family), but I'm afraid we will be occupied in May. Would have been nice, though, to experience it...

Yes Lennart Phillippe Gukelberger is the organizer.

Maybe we should consider making a convoy with all our Ranchos (two?)  from Denmark.

My wife is actualy supporting the idea of going to St. Tropez. So maybe...

I wish my Rancho would be ready for that I'd go, my brother lives in central France so I would have a half way stop.

And gravity is towards the centre of the earth, Lennart. Come here my boy, and let wise man Anders explain it all to you! Grin

Thanks for the posting, an impressive gathering of Ranchos, and it seams that most versions were represented incl Grand Raid and the extremely rare Midnight but non Decouverable soft tops.
It seams that they are all late years Talbot Matra (with the cheep looking plastic mirrors) but there are non Matra Simca from the early years.

However as the venue was St. Tropez I am rather disappointed that you do not have any girls in bikinis on any of the pictures.

Nice pictures. Its good to see that someone still cares for these funny cars (they must be funny, course when I drive mine, it makes people smile) Like Hans, I am a bit surprised, that theres not even one single early Matra-Simca Rancho. Are they all gone?, or were they not that attractive?. No matter what, the early years must be rare. Maybe I should go out this evening and give mine an extra smile and a pad on the hood.
