I have to ask, if that's your mother's worst nightmare, what would happen if you bought a really fast car? Or a motorbike? :lol:

My mum wouldn't even know what one was. BX GTi 16v, that is!

Well done Andrew, looks a belter, lovely mileage too!

Are you keeping the wheels two tone or going for the original look silver?

Anglia with 120bhp would definitely be more scary! I regularly dyno an Anglia running a Toyota 4AGE....pretty mental!

That said a BX 16v was fast enough for me when I was 20.
