BX legends

Post by Philip Chidlow »

OK, we have experienced a lot in our BXs and some are remembered amongst us.

I suggest maybe a 'rogues gallery' of 'known/infamous' BXs.

Obviously I count ones that I have had (as they're the ones I know most about) but here are a few to get the ball rolling:

The Green Hornet.
'RLO'
Todd's yellow estate
Team 'Green Tiger's' estate
Tim's GT
'ELF'
The 'Ascot Valver'
Grolliffe

• 2006 Xsara Picasso 1.6 16v

ELF still goes on.
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...

I'm not sure my TRS Auto is a legend, but I think it's certainly passed though a few member's hands...

(sounds wrong, but I can't think how to make it sound better, so I'll leave it... :) )

It\'s touched :P

Suppose it has been through a fair bit over the years what with the blow-up, TV show, rebuilds etc.

I\'m probably one of the longer running 16v owners with the same car. It\'ll be 7 years this year. I must be mental!

I\'d nominate the estate. It hasn\'t been on the road for years now, but it packed more into a couple of years than most cars do in a lifetime :lol:

Quite a few of our members have met my "Monica".

Generally well-behaved (for the last 5 years), so she doesn't hit the BXC headlines as often as some! :lol:

(1992 BX TXD 17TD hatch, in dark-blue, a good 10-footer......for those who havn't had the pleasure!)

Todd's TRD Mk1 is pretty legendary in my book, especially with the lovely accessories it wears.

Seconded! A frozen example of the 80s. I love it.

We should really have a BX Hall of Fame in the Gallery section!
