a UNIQUE bx

Post by ken newbold » Fri Sep 02, 2005 7:36 pm

I dont think I'd go quite that far

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1991-CITROEN-BX16 ... dZViewItem

it does look good though. No doubt Vanny will help me out with the link, doesn't seem to work properly when I do it. :(

Anyone fancy "running a book" on the final price, or how long before seller withdraws it.

Yes indeed, it was my Mk1 on ebay although rumor has it, theres someone living in the outer hebridese who didn't see it.

I went to London in it a few weeks back, and someone we met there said " I saw one just like this on ebay the other week, didn't think there could be so many around now"
Seemed a shame to put him wise. :)

Not too impressed with the actual advert, but given its location i reckon it will peak at £325

Nice-looking car, but who's to say there isn't a nice dollop of tinworm underneath or on the rear arches, or for that matter on the inner wings?
Shiny cars can hide all kinds of horrors: I've put my thumbs though the boot floors of very shiny BXs before now.

Low-mileage cars are by no means rust-free - they're often used for short runs and pu back in the garage damp. My first car - a 35k-mile always-garaged 15-year-old Austin 1300 was just like that - though admittedly you only had to look at the chassis on one of the things and they'd rust through before your very eyes!

I couldn't agree more, the only way to find out would be to go and see for yourself.

As for the finishing price, I'll be suprised if it runs till the end.

I think I win ! :D it didn't go the distance but not the reason I expected. Seems a bit odd ending the sale when the bidding was getting interesting. :o Any views on this one.
