Aha, good try but not quite as good as this effort from someone who obviously hasn't got a scooby doo on how to list a car...

3cc Cavmad? :shock: Suppose he means 3 litre :?:

I had one of these years ago when I was out in the States, went well. The power steering was as light as a feather. For fun would turn off the engine 100 yds from the right turn into where I was staying and it would take all my strength to turn the wheel unlike the power steering this side of the pond. :roll: :wink:

The Mercury is bugging me now, I want to see some pictures and get some gen on it. Only window shopping like but what the hell.

I think the winning bidder has it, he's selling off a stainless steel full 16v exhaust on e-bay, i believe in one of the pics said bx is just in view, although this is his 2nd listing so may not be there afterall....

Must say you've got a fantastic collection there! Are they all roadworthy?

getting there!
the italian BX, R16 tx,XM are fully legal,the GS estate has just passed MOT,just needs re registering,as its been off the road since the early '80s! have a GSA undergoing MOT work currently,and the DS has just been sent to a D specialist!
then its the turn for the Ami,R16 GL ! but i will need to sell several cars over the next year -- 3 x G's, R16 GL,BX st tropez,XM,R18 (although i want a Hillman Super Minx!!) i have big travel plans coming up,and as much as i want to keep them all,i can't ! and if im going to be out of the UK,its just not realistic to keep them,and store them! much as i love my cars,i love travel just as much!
