Should I call in and ask?

Tell us about BXs you have spotted on the road, or BXs/parts spotted for sale including eBay finds.

Should I call in and ask?

Post by Mark Dunmore »

I regularly drive past a local property that was recently sold, and on the last two occasions I noticed a silver BX estate, which looks like a recent arrival, (possibly early Mk2) on a trailer in the large paddock adjoining the property. Anyone from here? Should I pop in and say hello?

Went past again last Saturday, and there are 2CVs there now! One looks like its in the middle of rebuild. Didn't have time to stop, but really must make the effort to call in and say hello!

Could be for sale, but it's ever so slightly broken at the moment! (blown petrol engine, hydraulic leaks, various minor stuff). P'm me if at all interested...
