I'm in the 'winning' 30% - a great combination of wisdom and the last fragments of youth! :mrgreen: I think that all my BXs were first registered around the time I started driving in 1987 : a form of nostalgia?
Like most DS owners would be probably be around 60-80, CX owners 50-70. With a few keen young enthusiasts coming through to take over from the owners who have keeled over with antiquity! ( perhaps their fathers/grandfathers?)
