I was going to have a look at that but finding it
hard to get away from my valver hoping to get
it repaired took it to classic garage down the road from me
said it needs a new back panel plus not as bad as looks,

That's too cheap in my opinion, worth £2k all day long!

If I didn't have one already.....

It looks identical to one that used to live over the road from me when I was growing up. That was back when my Dad had 'RPO', the red BX that kicked my obsession off.

Wish I could remember the reg, but it certainly looks the same.

I've just caught up with this. My God what a lovely BX! And at a very, very tempting price. I'm not anywhere near to the point where I'd going offer my BX TZD for sale to make way for another Citroen, but this made it a close call.

Why hasn't it sold?! It needs sharing on FB etc.

Nowt's as queer as folk (or something similar northern sounding!)

Genuinely, if your BX isn't a daily car and you've got the opportunity to make it a GT for probably no additional cost....

Yeah, but the BX owes me over £4k and I haven't really put enough miles on it to justify selling it on... I wouldn't get anything like that at the moment... Sorry, (to myself) but the GT will have to find someone else to care for it.
