Still alive? BX van

Post by kieran.l »

I was wondering if my fathers BX van is out there somewhere. He bought it new in 1992, the reg being 92-C-6957. He sold it in '94 I think, to an Englishman with the surname Shields. It may be tin cans ten times over by now but I was just wondering about it.

I wonder... when my father said Shields I thought of Justin Shields as I knew he was one of the Citroenian BX columnists, with a van (who I assume is Jayboy here) but from the age that Justin looks in the little pic in the magazine and the age of the guy as my father described, I wonder if it is or coincidental?

It's an Isle of Man reg. I wonder if Justin got the van from his dad? It seems to be too much of a coincidence!

It would be a big coincidence wouldn't it! Imagine if it was still going :D Although in Justins signature thingy it looks like his van is a '93. Requires more investigation I think!
