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...

I met Kev, AKA 'red_dwarfers' this weekend at the CXM meeting, a pleasant young Citroen Car enthusiast I may say so and has just joined up on this and the XM Forum (BTW, Welcome Kev, I must join the XM Forum :oops: ) he's put a bit of a slide show up on the XM Forum, link to his SLIDE-SHOW he owns the White Xantia in the last frame, (I hope you don't mind Kev) BTW Kev, do you own any other Citroen Cars or have in the past ?
I was going to try and keep the Xantia owning bit quiet :lol: Should I be hiding for cover?

I've only ever owned this current Citroen, I sat in a BX with a leather interior a few months ago if that counts :P

Matt,
I was one of the few people that did 'Sleepy Jean', Karaoke is not something I make a habit of doing :lol:

Aha, if that was at Huntingdon then that would have been mine - I remember letting a Xantia owner have the pleasure of sitting in a proper Citroen... :wink:

Was I singing it too? Apologies, I'm not normally that forgetful! Maybe it's that knock on the head that did it?

Theres nothing like a bit of Blog Hijacking is there :cry:


Well its like this mat, if i put the effort in to upload the vids to yourtube, then one of us is BOUND to post on facebook about the drunken idiot, then it will show on my facbook page, which in turn a couple of your friends (who are now my facebook friends) will then see, and pass it around your friends, who will then show it to your missus.

So i'm just going to message your missus directly and get it over with, ok?

It was at the CCC National I tested out the BX seats.

If you were the bloke that kept falling over then yes, you did sing Sleepy Jean :lol:
As no one else has mentioned the 'other' incident I'll keep that quiet :lol: :lol:













Paranoia is an amusing thing :twisted:

I wasn't trying to drive it, I was just starting it and revving the engine using my hands on the pedals...just that my head must have looked uncomfortably close to the gearlever!

Surely we could mention blackmail here!

To be fair, Mat was ace entertainment all night, and I do mean ALL BLOODY NIGHT!

Especially when he decided he was going to walk to Birmingham to find a phone box to call his missus after trying his best to kill his mobile..
amd then repeatedly running away from those of us trying to hold him up!
Pure gold!

Any event where the BXP posse are in attendance tends to be, er, well, erm, interesting!

Next year young Jim, come find us, pull up a pew, have a cup of tea, and watch the masters of drunkeness fix cars at unspeakable O'clock whilst totally trollied, with no tools other than hammer and chisel, for they are the tools of men!

In fairness though, we had quite a few random party goers come and join us, and we went to bed awefully early!

Anyone is welcome to join the 'noisey corner', its simply more fun, and we usually have shelter these days!
