How times change.....

Post by DLM »

Today I rolled up at a fast-fit for tyres in my BX - to find myself warmly and enthusiastically greeted and the BX a subject of informed interest. A first in my experience, and not the sometimes sulky/baffled/"weird French car" reaction, not unknown more than a decade ago.
Occasionally constrained by geography. When not driving, can rely on ferry, two wheels and musclepower when a couple of miles as the crow flies would become a round-road-trip ten times the distance.

I took my car to work to get it MOTed, the knuckle dragger who seemed to take enjoyment failing it said i should cube it instead of fixing it….he drives a new focus 🙄
