Does this write up look any good for Timex?

Citroën
BX 19RD Estate

After the 1982 Paris launch of the BX, it reached our shores the following year with a range of different petrol engines available. In 1984, Citroen added diesel models to the range, then in 1985 added the Heuliez designed and built estates with both petrol and diesel engines. With a redesign the following year aimed at increasing mass market appeal, and the addition of turbo diesel models in 1988, the BX became the best selling diesel car in Britain.
This Mk1 model was registered in 1986, and is believed to be the only RHD Mk1 Estate currently on the road. It has only belonged to the current owner for a short while, and not much is known about it's history, although it's fair to say it's had a hard life, having covered 234000 miles at the time of writing. It was purchased by the previous owner last year after it had been hit by an uninsured driver, followed by several years in storage. He managed to get it on the road, and did a great deal of work before deciding to concentrate on other projects. Since purchase, it's received attention to the hydraulic system and the bodywork, and managed a trip to Citroen's Conservatoire and back, a journey of 750 miles!

Data*
Engine: 1905cc XUD diesel. Power:65 (72)HP. Speed: 96 (102.5)mph
Fuel Consumption: Average 48 mpg.
Gear Box: 5 Speed manual into Front Wheel Drive

I prefer free options Tim. I might be able to get my hands on some boards like Mike has successfully blagged. (thanks to Mike's local 2CV chums!)

I prefer free options
I remembered today I have the remains of another display system - 7 rectangular panels of various colours that I used to use on my cycle displays. They clip to pipes that form uprights, which I need to get, but they should make another useable stand for hanging posters etc. on

I may even have a second lined up (I can hardly wait) because the terrifying "multi-functional device" at work behaved beautifully for a change and didn't have to be sworn at once, so I went wild and printed 2 copies instead of waiting until next week to replace any odd pages that may have been chewed up by the laminator. Perhaps the MFD was inspired by my soothing rendition of 'some day my prints will come'. As I only had one page that got crinkled, the spare copy only needs one page reprinting. So will give ^ that set to Tim for set up of our stand and will see if CCC can be persuaded to take a set for their stand given that it's the BX's birthday - and get that done next week. Who is in charge of the CCC stand? - Nigel?

Affirmative NW is NEC CCC organiser and will have every detail ground to graunching detail that only NW is aware of - and it will be brilliant of course!
