Ageism

Post by Jaba » Thu Nov 10, 2005 2:42 pm

I was browsing Planète Citroën and came across this < Age of BX owners survey >


Image

Interesting results so far. Seems to mirror what I have deduced are the popular age groups in the BXClub as well - i.e the BX is most popular with
the 20s age group. Presumably because they are cheap to buy.

Unless we run our own survey which will prove me wrong ???
The Joy of BX with just one Citroën to my name now. Will I sing Bye Bye to my GTI or will it be Till death us do part.

22 here! I think we have the most mixed bag of ages about really!

Simran of the BX16v club has two BX's and i think is 18, possibly making him the youngest owner?



Personally i like having a car of the 80's and more importantly its a car i grew up in, and have learned a lot about. It was handed to me on a plate, though i suspect i would be a very different person if my dad had bought an escort instead of a Citroen!

I'm 27, soon to be 28!

And the first car I bought and had my own insurance policy on, age 24? My GSA. Hopefully I'll be back in my BX, or another, soon, while the G is away!
