Rust in Peace...

Post by peanuts » Sat Mar 30, 2013 9:29 pm

Hello there per my other post and as promised a few pics of the BX's and other Citroens languishing as my friends place in the Peterborough area. Quite a few of them have come from salvage auctions and have varying degrees of damage along side the usual Citroen complaints!

GTI auto damaged:

Image
Image

Selection of others including a 1.4 estate, 19RD, 16TGS, 19TRS.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

This is a 1.9 diesel sporting peugeot alloys and was exhumed from a scrapyard and run for two years until recently. Plans are for it to return to the road (much like the others!!)

Image

There's a couple with HAM on the number plates which I found amusing:

Image
Image
The silver one is a diesel auto and I had that running recently.

This is a TZD turbo acquired relatively recently and worth saving:
Image
Image

A few more; the white ish one is a leader:
Image
Image
Image

This is a GTi with a naff engine, but there's another crunched one with a good engine. My estate was the same colour when I got it:
Image
Image

I quite liked this one when I got it going a few years back. It's 1.4 petrol with ropey head gasket:
Image

A tidy Athena:
Image
Image

Another TZD that was almost ready for the road a few years back when I was doing by estate:
Image

And a few more:

Image
Image
Image
Image

This one is recent and goes quite well apparently:
Image

Same can't be said for this one:
Image

Bit of hide and seek and funny business with a Diane:
Image

The only Mk1 onsite. Run buy the owner for some years. Diesel, 300k and scrapped with the DVLA before the interest in Mk1's grew:
Image

Image
Image

Think that's a BX in there...

Thanks for posting - seems a shame, but if your friend is willing to let bits go from some/all of them then better than being cubed, which I guess would otherwise have been their fate.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph!! I nearly had what mds141 (Mark) would call a 'gentleman's' moment' there for a minute! Quite an impressive pile of stuff. 8)

Ahh! This is what franklin Rugg was on abouts, but wouldn't reveal the location. If there's parts for sale I would be interested.

Couple of rarities but most are parts cars.

Yes a lot of them really are parts only and I would imagine the majority would be for sale. A few of the better ones have been saved including my estate, another the same with and few more miles and a GTi. The green and lichen make some of the straighter cars look worse than they actually are... honest! my white estate was mostly green.

Pile of something certainly!

Yes I've met Franklin and his father. Quite a few have been broken and there are various bits stored in the cars. The owner can be a little sharp on price at times but always open to negotiation. Buying a whole car would be the most cost effective option I would think...

Would it be possible to visit this gent, he's obviously a bx fan so wouldn't mind meeting him, I've been told he doesn't welcome strangers but you know him personally.

Like the 16TZS and the DTR turbo. Shame for the rest of them, some very interesting BXs there.

Ho ho! I've asked previously about those and they are not being sold separately I don't think. If you wanted to buy the whole car or 3 that might be a different matter...

Hello Andy, no idea if the red car has one and it's been down on its haunches for I don't know how many years.

Forgot to add some of the other Citroens - hope this doesn't offend the purists!

Low mileage ZX - well worth saving. Think it's only got about 40k on it:
Image

A fairly solid Ami:
Image
Image
Image

A smart ZX. Needed a wing and bonnet which has been done, plus a diesel the same colour but needing a headgasket.
Image
Image

Quite a few xantias:
Image
Image

The odd XM:
Image

and a pair of AX GT's:

Good lord! What a collection!? 'Indeed, 'fairly solid' for an Ami, but absolutely bolloxed for any other car! :D
