I can agree on that one too...it certainly doesn't look like a tatty old banger. Why is there so much aversion towards the price...don't people want the BX to rise in value - I certainly would like to see them reach higher prices and then, as mentioned, classic car organisations (other than the CCC) would appreciate them more rather than just a 'cheap tatty runabout that you can pick up for peanuts'messerschmitt owner wrote:don't knock the prices - I remember years and years ago all the efforts the Bond owners Club made to keep prices down, to stop cars being exported and all that happened is that lots of cars that were worth restoring were scrapped instead.
Do you really want that to happen to BXs. If you have one, what does it matter what it is worth - the more the better if you want to see them on the road and to see companies remake bits for them.
Frankly, a 30,000 mile mint car was well worth £2k - all day long - you're just all used to seeing them as old bangers that you've forgotten that they have appreciated in value.
My messerschmitt cost me £200 when I bought it - want to buy it off me - give me £20k! Is it worth £20,000!!! Of course not, but that is the going rate for a very tidy one.
We're now no longer in the realms of BXs as old bangers but as the quirky, fun, interesting classics they have become.
Spread the word about how good they are, get it mentioned in the Classic press and watch the prices go up a bit, and be happy you own one already!
So why, if you GT is valued at the same value of that TXD are you not liking the price of it? Looks as good a car IMO in the pictures but haven't seen it in the flesh. Don't get me wrong your GT is a lovely BX, and a rare one too.ts insured for £2000 agreed value now
