how many are left

Post by Magpi »

its a sad sight to see just how many of our beloved little Tupperware boxes on wheels are left

http://howmanyleft.co.uk

my beloved tzi is very rare with only 4 left on the road

my old tri there are only 2 left on the road

makes me wonder how many of them are left back home in Australia

of all 182361 bx's that have ever been registered there are only 1199 left on the road and 1137 on SORN

If there's only about 1200 on the road that makes them bloody scarce motors.

I only ever see my mate Tim's and his missus's BX on the road around where i live, Mind you, dont travel about much and seem to remember only seeing one on my trips to Cornwall in the past 5 years. I can see this figure falling sharply too as are that many enthusiasts to keep em on the road?
Never thought i would ever own 2 myself but if another bargain comes up, ile grab it.

I wonder where most of them hang out, ie what part of the country hosts the most BXs?

Bit of an 'in joke' TBH. Actually I have owned 14 BX's in my time, so just a scratch on the surface!

I imagine the Midlands is accruing a fair proportion...

I just wonder if it was possible for there to be a forum slot to indicate where they all were. Not neccessarily giving name rank number, but just an indication as to where there was a BX?

Just dont see em anymore.

Just 67 Renault 16s left. My old man used to have one. Really liked that car.
