Sad day : for sale my 19000 mile bx meteor

Post by Pcheaven »

Without going into details, Ill health has resulted in a change in priorities

So this is a brief heads up to you very kind folks who have given me much advice during my short ownership of the beautiful car

In the next few days I will do a detailed and “proper” for sale post

She is a beauty, and will be missed.

Sorry to hear about the circumstances but good luck for the future and good luck with the sale. With all the effort you've put in to what was already a great car someone will get a little belter.

Aw man, sorry to hear all isn't going well. If you need help with parts/storage or anything, I'm only a stone's throw away.

Hi Marc,

That's really sad news, after all the effort you've thrown into her since 'signing on' here back in March. I think you carried many of us along in working out what to acquire, and how to sort it.

She will make a great on-going project for a new owner, so just make sure she goes to someone who'll do her justice.

Sorry to hear about your own woes, and hope that can all be sorted, too. Keep us posted...
Chris

Hi Marc,

Sorry to hear this, just as you were getting it 'right' too.

If anyone is interested, I can vouch for this car. I've driven it and worked on it recently.

Sorry to hear and that's a great shame, but hope you get through things OK.

But as well you know BXs are like the Hotel California, "You can check out any time, but you can never leave."
