The car has been at my mates garage for ages on the back burner, he has now decided he is no longer trading, so the BX has to come home. I am now in a dilemma, do I carry on and get the work finished somewhere else, a bit of welding and some paint, or do I pass it on to another BX enthusiast with more time than me?
I really do like this car, but I already have 2 Saab 900s and 3 99s, time and commitment are the issues :(

I'd get in touch with Leo Crossley of this here parish. He's steadily building up a collection of valvers.

I would rather it go to a BX enthusiast. I'll put some pics and a description in the for sale section. I drove it back from my mates garage yesterday without any problems, around 15 miles.
