D reg. 16TRS auto - needs to find a home . . . quick.

Post by Paul296 »

Posted at the request of Mr.Leech who can't get into his Photobucket account. Rare car that needs to find a home pdq or it'll be scrapped at the end of June when the current MOT runs out. Sure Tim'll be along soon to give you the low-down.

I agree. They're just God's way of telling you to have more roughage in your diet. :D

If that was a Mk1 people would be fighting over it! Even so a cheap neo classic which could be made to look better with some TLC.

It's my brothers car and would have been off to be crushed tomorrow, but it's got a one week reprieve.
This could be one of the most solid bxs about. It belonged from new to my aunt and was always serviced each year and garaged until my brother started using it a couple of years ago. At the time it had less than 30000 miles on it, and the speedo stopped working, but it still has probably less than 40000.
Due to its indoor life until recently and low mileage there's a good chance that it's free of the dreaded hidden tin worm affecting many seemingly good bxs.
I'd love to take it on myself, I've had 2 bxs in the past, but I've run out of space for vehicles.
He's been offered £150 for scrap, but would much prefer to see it go and be used, a small amount of tlc would produce a very solid car.

I wouldnt mind it, but with the challenge taking all my time and spare cash I just cant, its FAR too good to scrap, if it was a 19DTR it would have been claimed. Shame your brothers not cared for it like your Aunt, but to most its just an old banger.

..that_

I'm in much the same position, but with more motors that are broke, and a possible relocation in my future!

I've a disabled mate who doesn't like his Xzara, and I keep pointing him in the direction of BX Auto's that come up for sale, but he's not bit yet!

As Tim says, if it was something different, like a diesel, GTi, Valver or MK1, it would have already gone, as BX's haven't quite reached the stage where condition is more important than model, but I wonder how many will regret not snapping this up in the future? At the risk of upsetting the purists, surely it's worth grabbing as a donor shell for a rusty but more sought after model?

We will be passing by it a week Saturday on the way to Lancaster/Scotland but I really just cant manage it which is really sad, if it were near by I would take it, find the money etc.

I guess its worth eBaying to try and reach a wider audience, such a shame that still noone wants them.

I'm going to have a look tomorrow. I'm popping down to Dave Ashworth's for some new tailgate struts, £15 each if anybody wants any. Paul and myself are hatching a rescue plan!
