Looks nice, that would be diesel here 😉
Prefer it to the Lamborghini, like Signor Gandini!

A BX in Texas is amazing!

What was the process for locating a rare old car in Japan?

Actually this one was listed on a few online Japanese dealerships that I watch pretty regularly. I've been importing other cars from Japan for about 6 years now. Just filter by Citroen and manual transmission hah

Japanese cars tend to be well looked after with strict MoTs. By chance in Tokyo in 1998 I saw a Morris 1300 which for those rust buckets was in beyond incredible condition.

It's seems like my Italian 19 TZS, both from the nameplate and aesthetically. I think the rear light is different (on the side, where the arrow is). I look forward to updates :)
