And another one....

Post by wtr » Wed Sep 09, 2009 9:35 pm

Hello!
I'm Wouter, yes, also from the netherlands. I own 3 bxx;
The middle one is not mine. On the left the digit (in verry good condition), on the right the GT
Image
The GT. I bougt this one after it was of the road for 14 years! I love it so much that I decided to put the digit in the garage for a few years.
Image
And the one I bought last may in France, a 14E break in verry good condition
Image

Next to the 3 bxx I own a Dspecial (1972) and a 504 coupé (also 1972).
Cheers,
Wouter

Is that the green BX GT that was featured in pictures fairly recently? It looked like it had been stored in a barn...

Beautiful colour. Do you know of another BX in the same colour?

It is the only one in the Netherlands. But, once there was an other one. A friend of mine (the owner of the ligt bleu 16RS in between the Digit and the GT) bought a 16TRS in germany also in Vert Cali. Unfotunally it burnyt down at higway A2, near Utrecht.
Sometimes a bx (or cx, or visa) in this color is offered on leboncoin or german e-bay.

If this is the same BX which it could be from your statement of "It had damage to the front (left)" where are those lovely Alloy wheels ?
Also did you manage to source a front bumper to match up as the rear bumper to complement this superb colour which this MK1 is finished in ?
If so any chance of any front photo shots to show the forum members of how it looks today after the repair ?
Thanks in anticipation !

The alloy wheels are in restoration. I fixed the front, but only in a 'french way'. That because I wanted to drive the car first to see how it would keep after 14 years sleeping in a barn.
