If so, what is the tradition and cerimonial procedures?

From the Archives: Here is a picture dating back to July 4th 1970, of the very first CH 200 being officially christened the "ZENITH". Records indicate that mineral water was used; Champagne was kept for the toast (see table in the background). Pictured here doing the honors is the official God-mother of Zenith #1 (F-PPZY), none other than Mrs. Robin, wife of Pierre Robin (Chris's boss at the time). The presiding priest seems quite amused with the nature of this "new-born"; little do the two young boys looking-on realize that this is just the beginning of a life full of "Zeniths" for them... Can you identify them?
