D48 MVP when in Leeds.. then J55905 (Jersey) BX17RD

Post by christhelion »

This is a real long shot but I'm wondering if any of you happen to know of this BX? It was a beige 17RD. If anyone from jersey is on here and was still into BX's in the 1990s, you might know of it.
I'm just curious as to whether anyone knows about it. It was my Dad's car when I was young.

I don't think it will be on the road anymore. It's had rot through the boot in 1993. I think that was the salty Jersey air that accelerated that because I've noticed a lot of you guys have cars that age.
The last time I saw it, it was pulling a trailer of sand up a hill from one of the bays and leaving clouds of black smoke as it did so.
I remember it towing our caravan, not quickly because it didn't do quickly without a caravan on the back but I remember my dad saying it didn't slow it down really. Although HGV's would pass us on the motorway.
