not so keen on the red one, but that Hurricane looks nice.
It also looks VERY familiar? Been on here at some point?

I've had two, a GTi and a TZD.
I'd have another.
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Hi Chris, I think your correct !

What triggered the elephant memory was that some-one in past has swapped/robbed the limited edition interior from it, which spoils this particular car and therefore is not a true TZD Hurricane IMHO !

Also it still has the boot badges the wrong way round as pointed by Tim (Forth post down) in THIS thread !

I also noticed that the forum link seems to be broke in the /\ thread which the OP 'Hurricane' made and whilst reading thro' the thread again the second post by 'roody262' and a search of their posts I found THIS thread which reveals the reg. (J821 RMJ) being the same as the current E-Bay listing !

:lol:

Hmm it would have beena real faff to make that a hurricane if it wasnt, I think it is, but someones swopped the seats and wheels over from another BX at sometime as the alloys are off a valver.


Nice car though, just needs them badges a swopin'. :lol:

They come along like buses!
I fancy both of them,Richard.
Hmm, Hurricane is in Cheshire so potentially local. Probably a good job I'm skint as I don't actually need another car, though that is very tempting!

I bet this will end up silly money (hopefully) It really doesnt bother me that the wheels are valvers or its got the wrong seats or even the badges are the wrong way round as long as the cars in decent fettle and not bodged to buggery just to get rid.He doesnt sound like he knows much about it judging by his responses to previous questions about spheres?
What do you reckon it will fetch?

I can see that doing circa £700+ Richard. Nice looking car, loads of test, looks well cared for, recent belt and the fact it's a diesel and a pretty quick and economical one should all help it's cause.
