There are some great blogs/pictures of long-term restoration projects on UBXM as well as on here :D

I'm sure I saw something on there about a BX being donated to the Patrimoine after having been restored by UBXM - and thought this Digit was it, but evidently not. I'm having difficulties finding the thread about the other again in amongst the 8,756,324 sub-fora ...

It looks like Digits are as super rare and super sought after/admired in France as they are over here. All those images need is a fat, smug Jonathan Meades in an overcoat and sunglasses; 'Le Corbusier, failed Modernist Utopia, the Americanisation of France blah, blah, blah'. Shut up and get out the way Jonno, we're trying to get a good look at the car! :D

:D It does look good! I wonder how far the BX Club Digit that David Rutherford donated to Richard of Keithley, has progressed towards that condition? :?: :?

Wasn't there a guy we met at the ICCCR had one too - I think he turned up in a white GS?

Yes he was, friend of Dominic Weston, apparently that needs some TLC too.

Looks lovely - although technically wrong bumpers as shouldn't have bumper rubbers.
