So perhaps '21 years of BX ownership coming to an end' is just the start of the next 21 years Ken? The BX is dead, long live the BX!

Have a nice holiday.

My thoughts exactly. You can take a bloke out of the BX but you can't take the BX out of the bloke. Hope you have/had a great time in Bulgaria Ken.

Saturday saw a BX shaped pile of snow with just the unmistakeable rear end sticking out of it :)
Then today I saw a really nice red hatch, location unknown, but was clean and shiney, like Tims :D
Hopefully it's going to warm up a bit tomorrow and I'll be out with the camera. :)

Well it's been a good time but for the lack of BX's

I walked miles and miles round the city in two days and never saw another one.

4 XM's loads of x@nt1a's and dozens of ZX's, one or two trabants both in use and some that looked abandoned.

Dear Ken.
I am glad your having a good time Ken, it sounds like a very nice
place :wink:
You could always bring home an XM or a Xantia they are both lovely
cars Ken 8)
I thought people all over the world would try to abandon a Trabant
if they had one :?: I would :roll: Trabbies don,t even have a heater.
All the best Ken and I hope you have a wonderful new year too.
