Image

1993 BX 19 TXD - off the road since '99!


Image

Now on to the others...

Image

Image

1983 2CV6 Beachcomber


Image

Image

1956 2CV (Made in Slough)


Image

1972 Mehari - should look more like this....

Image


And finally, just sold this....

Wow. Some I know and many that I don't! Somehow missed that you owned a Slough-built. Blimey.

I like the look of the Visa GTi, looks like a proper pocket rocket and quite similar to the AX GT.

Don't even start me on what other Citroens I'd like to own!

In answer to Mulley, I'm not sure in particular which are the sorry looking ones - that's pretty much all of them as cameras are good at telling lies! The Slough 2CV is undergoing a full mechanical resto but will still be shabby and functional on top. The same goes for the Mehari. I'm really not one for show cars, having the C4 taught me that!

As suitable parts turn up I tend to make use of them to make something look better. The TZi being a case in point, I'm waiting the go ahead to strip a TZD in the same colour of doors, wings, bonnet and front bumper to replace the battered originals.
