BX register

Post by Kitch »

Hi all,

Those who read my scribblings in the Citroenian will know I've been setting up an online register database for our beloved BXs.

It's taken a while, but it's finally live! Here:

https://forms.gle/psd2mgSyN7ZyEgBA8

It's a fully online entry form for the BX register. It's up and running, and live right now. It's fully encripted, and nobody can see the results except me. I'll report back occasionally on here (and more frequently in the column) with interesting ("we'll be the judge of that!") statistics.

So far we have about 30 BXs past and present accounted for. :)

There will be more info in January's column. Not the one you're about to receive in the post, the next one!

Enjoy

There are now 350 BXs listed in the register, some still with us, and some now bean cans. The next step is to separate it into cars that are still 'live', and ones that are no more.

Keep sending them in! Even if you just spot one for sale somewhere, the point is to add as many cars to it as possible.

I've had a look on howmanyleft and according to their listing there are approx 250 bx's of various models currently roadworthy in the UK with a lot more on SORN
The most popular being the tzd turbo with 40+ and the 16v with a surprising 20+ and a further 100+ 16v on SORN-not sure about that, sadly quite a few models are showing 0 and a fair few into single figures.
I'm not sure how up to date these figures are or where the info is obtained from
Would be interesting to compare the 2 lists if poss.
I expect there are bx owners out there who are unaware such a list as Kitch's even exists so these cars will never make the numbers up.
