Ask the MODS to put this in the blog spot then you can update it as your ownership progresses?

(from NEC nominations thread - scroll down a bit): In his own words -

"Hello My names Andrew and I turned 17 on the 6th January 2013, Then found and bought my BX on the 27th January. Truth be told I never intended to buy a BX Id never seen one or even heard of one. But as that shape came into view on the eBay page I was sold ! Picked it up, then drove it around on my pervisional license it was a real experiance learning to drive in her too. I passed my test 4 weeks ago and been driving my BX everyday its so nice to have the freedom to drive but especially to drive 'Me old girl' but enough about me. The car. She's a 1992 Citroen BX 19 TGD Hatcback in EJX Red, Changed interior for a higher spec one not sure what model its out of though also the original wheel trims have gone and now the orignal refurbished steels sit there in a old English white pait job wrapped in new Avon tyres. One thing I love about my car is the fact its got a Helix sticker next to the Citroen badge on the boot as it was sold from the Helix garage in Essex and still wears the orignal Helix number plates. The car is very tidy bumpers have been resprayed, but the bodywork and paint is in a very good conditon cosidering its been used daily by me and the previous owner. I would love my car to be nominated to be at the stand as it reaches out to the younger generation as its a very Retro looking machine.

p.s 1st picture is of how I bought it then my progression with it. "

hes on facebook a bit, still had the BX I assume as I sent him a bumper bracket a few weeks ago.

It is surprising the amount of enthused new members come on board, post loads and loads then disappear again!
