K Reg BX, 36,000 Miles & 1 Owner From New

Post by Stuarted »

Met a man at a filling station in Shropshire today who had just inherited a BX from his 90-something-year-old father-in-law who (perhaps not surprisingly) had lost his licence due to eyesight problems.

Metallic dark green coupe with rear spoiler - I'm too ignorant to know what model it was but it just said "BX" on the back. Looked good apart from slightly damaged rear bumper

He wasn't sure if he was going to keep it or sell it, and does not have internet access at present since he has just moved house.

I suggested to him that if he kept it, he ought to join the club, where he would get a warm welcome as the owner of an unusually good example. And that if he sold it, to advertise here. I told him I thought that wherever he sold it, he probably wouldn't get a huge price for it but at least if he sold it here it would go to a good home where it would be cherished, which he agreed is what his father-in-law would want.

I gave him my contact details and I will report if and when I hear anything further - if people here are interested.

Sorry - 'saloon'. Basically, "not an estate" which is usually the only kind I am interested in.

(If it had ben an estate, preferably a diesel, I would have offerd him a good price for it there and then!)

I rather think he'd have people biting his hand off if he offered it on here, but not me - I'm also not fussed about the hatchback.

This one didn't look as sporty as that and it had 4 doors.

I admit my ignorance of the various different BX models, but I was rather surprised that car with a spoiler (and therefore obviously not a 'basic' model) did not have some kind of special model designation on the back

I want that! I want it almost as much as I'd like to spend the evening with Natasha Khan!
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

If I had the need of one, I'd love a BX pick up if one ever existed. I could convert an estate I suppose the improvement in the looks department would be tremendous!

I've seen one or two nice pick up conversions - usually by French garages . . .

And if you need a bit more load space these are quite handsome?

I like both of those pick ups, prefer the red one I think, but those biggies look a mare to drive with the twin axles, good for camping though.............hmmmmmmm
