The Houston French Car Club
"Dedicated to the pleasure, frustrations, and double-takes that French cars provide us!"
Chances are if you are at this page then you have found it via a card or flyer that I left on your car.
I am an owner of two French cars, a Peugeot 505 STI and a Renault 18i. I love French cars, and chances are that if you are driving one in Houston in this day and age, you do to. I have long debated starting a Peugeot club in Houston, but have decided after purchasing my Renault to form an all-inclusive club.
If you drive an Eagle Premier or Medallion, or even a Dodge Monaco you may be wondering what on earth does this have to do with me. Well, I love to break it to ya you own a Renault! Chances are you have figured this out so welcome aboard. Ditto for owners of Winnebago LaSharos/Itasca Phasers, (Renault motors) welcome!
It is my intention to organize a regular meetings and events for the club. It is my experience that most owners live inside the loop. Based on this and other factors I am leaning towards having the meetings at Hungrys Bistro in the Rice Village. The parking is sufficient, the accommodations pleasant and the food and drink excellent!! I wanted to find a place that could meet everyones needs. Hungrys has indoor and outdoor dining, smoking and non-smoking sections, wine and beer, drip coffee and espresso, hamburgers and veggie-burgers, etc you get my point.
I am still undecided on frequency and day of week. (Chances are Friday, Saturday, or Sunday)
Please email me regarding the status of meetings.
