I like it.

Just think of the wifes face when I turn up with it and say "our new load lugger". Very practical, with a special place for the mother in law too...

Actually I wonder how many bodies the suspension could comfortably cope with :twisted:

Even though I changed the spheres, riding in the back is a little stiff.

Gives new meaning to that oft-used phrase by "those who do not know" - you know, the one that goes "I wouldn't be seen dead in one of those".....
Relying on two wheels and musclepower since the last BX (or any car) had to go.

I remember seeing an article in the Citroenian a good few years back about a CX hearse which had a hydropneumatically operated rear deck, operated by a couple of BX power steering rams. Apparently most hearse are 'double deckers' for when they need to transport a body quickly without being seen to be disrespectful, and this was the only way it could be done and still have the top deck able to be at window height. :)

Interesting that the makers can't get the back bumper to line up nicely either!

I imagine the noise of an XUD would spoil the image so its petrol?

The one and only funeral car i have been in was a stretched granada limo with a V6 in it, made a poper racket too as i think it had done alot of miles but went well.

A diesel hearse wouldnt really go! Mind u a 16v would get u there quickly!

Has anybody ever done a 16v BX estate conversion?? OK I know, 'Why?!" but, you know, I'm kind of intrigued...
