A BX 16 Valve and afternoon tea

Post by Dave_16v » Wed Apr 10, 2019 7:25 pm

After the long winter I decided to tax the valver and take it for a run. We know Citroen is 100 years old this year but there is another reasonably well known brand also celebrating It's centenary, Bettys Tea Rooms. So we stopped for a tea and a Fat Rascal before a drive around in the sun.

:D No one knows for sure who the Betty was. It was the name the founder gave at the time, could have been his friend perhaps.
