Count me out dudes, England are playing at Old Trafford on the Saturday I believe and I`m pretty sure me and my lad will be getting tickets for it.

People in the SD1 club know me well enough and that I have a odd taste in cars!

I bet you it will get alot of interest at the CCC even though its not a Citroen, I can park it next to a CX and we can all comment on how alike they are in many ways!

Always loved SD1's so I for one will be very pleased to see it. They are really, really rare round these parts these days.

Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Yeah, rust buckets :lol: sorry Tim :oops:

Saw a guy there last year in a Hillman Minx, he was telling me it was the oldest Minx in existance, chassis no 00015 or something, then I told him about my mate who was restoring one, yeah but it wont be like this he said, I assured him it was the same but he wouldn't have it. So I rang my mate and asked him to check his chassis number, a few minutes later he came back and told me it was 00006 :lol:
Next time I looked the guy had packed up and gone off home to Manchester. :lol:

The GT's ORGA number is 3230 which, if my maths is correct, means it celebrates its 21st birthday next Tuesday (12 Sept).

Hmm, interesting. Any complaints if I show up briefly in a non-BX? Promise to hide it in the car park somewhere!

probably better than nothing at all i guess! And if your sharan has a towbar then perhaps you could tow a BX along to the show? Or i know a very nice one going cheap you could tow home!

Which one would that be then, Vanny? Not that I`m wanting another one you understand!
Push comes to shove I`d consider taking my TZD 1.9TD if anyone wants to buy it?

Count me out (again!). Saturday is fleet reduction, and may be addition, day too.
