Citroen owners celebrate the 2CV
Citroen owners travelled from far and wide for the classic car meeting

Citroen 2CV enthusiasts gathered on the Denbigh Moors to show their love of the classic French car.

About 30 drivers from across the UK congregated on Saturday at the Sportsman's Arms, believed to be the highest pub in Wales.

It was the third time the annual run has been held in north Wales.

Organiser Ian Whalley, from Colwyn Bay, Conwy, said: "It's for people to get together and have a good time. These cars raise a smile wherever they go."

Mr Whalley was expecting a variety of 2CVs and other similar models including Dyanes.

Ian Whalley said 2CVs "raise a smile wherever they go"

He added: "The group are all staying in a bunk barn in Capel Curig, so rather than having the meeting and everyone disappearing home, they can all chill out and enjoy the weekend.

"It's for people who love 2CVs and all the different deviations.

"I think I love them because of the simple mechanics. If you go travelling in one across Europe you can always find someone who knows how to mend it.

"They also break down barriers by making people smile, and get a warm welcome wherever they go."
