Anything about BXs

Every car that I can remember owning. Looking at them, and recalling driving them, I have to admit the 520i was by far and away the best. I missed out a Saab and another 2cv and a Renault 5 too... but the 520i was amazing!

EDIT 1+2: I should mention these aren't the actual cars - but as near as I could find around the net. Missed out a tzd too :oops:

ive started a new thread in general chat listing cars/bikes I have owned over the years.
that way this thread will stay clear for replacements for the BX
1991 BX Meteor 1.6

light travels faster than sound, thats why you look intelligent and then you spoil it all by opening your mouth !!!!!

Coming late to this thread but there are some lovely cars there. The Lancia Fulvia - haven't seen one of those in years but they were lovely things, especially the Mk1s with aluminium panels. A scary number of the ones on Scarecrow's list have also passed through my hands at one time or another. I'm another Citroëniste who's always had a soft spot for Saabs as well.
To the original question, I really like the look of the new Fiat 500s - best of the modern minis IMHO. An original 500 is on my wishlist – I'll go to Italy and buy one one day and drive it home. My best mate had one when we were 17. He passed his test a few weeks before me, and two hours later we were going down the biggest hill in Essex (not that big in real terms, I'll admit) flat out, with me steering and operating the hand throttle from the passenger seat, and him sitting on the back of the driver's seat with his head out of the sunroof, trying to fix the wiring to the radio...

Others on the wishlist include a S3 Landrover pickup (hopefully arriving in the next few weeks), a 1955 Traction Avant in midnight blue (sadly not likely to be arriving any time soon).
1990 BX TZD Estate ('the grey one', 1991 BX TZD Estate ('the white one'), 1982 2CV6 Charleston (in bits), 1972 AZU Serie B (2CV van), 1974 HY72 Camper, 1990 Land Rover 110 diesel LWB, 1957 Mobylette AV76, 1992 Ducati 400SS, 1966 VW Beetle, 1990 Mazda MX-5, 1996 Peugeot 106D, 1974 JCB 2D MkII, 1997 BMW R1100RS, 1987 Suzuki GSX-R1100, 1978 Honda CX500A, 1965 Motobecane Cady, 1988 Honda Bros/Africa Twin, 1963 Massey Ferguson 825, and a lot of bicycles!

I remember my dad buying a Renault 16TS back in 1979 from an auction, for £7... no, that's not a typo, seven pounds, and it still had MOT on it!
