I'll be there for definite in the BX!!!!

We were cutting it a bit close but my dads mate needed some work doing to his berlingo so he gave us a lift down to the garage today. So of course we gave him a lift back the bx.

Thankfully a kind citroen enthusiast showed us how to fill up with lpg at the local garage. He was impressed with the bx and used to own several himself the last being a gti 4x4.

One thing i was impresed with is how it runs and the ride is amazing. There are no bumps/potholes and its surprisingly flat in the corners too. Its also surpringly good at the shopping run. :lol:

We'll be there on the saturday although dont know what time exactly.

See you all there.

P.S im easy to spot as im 21, have a beard and will most likely be the only person asking everyone about mk1 bx parts!!

Just got back. An epic turn-out of BXs somewhere in the mid to upper twenties I believe. Great stuff.

And Tim's GT won best of show. Not a bad day for the BX. 8)

Well done Tim, my personal favourite was that little dark red Dyanne 6, it was in great orignal nick, very quaint!
